The cast includes Idris Elba as titular character Charlie, Frankie Hervey as Gabby and Guz Khan as Del.

The role won't be a huge stretch for Elba, who DJs and produces when he's not busy acting and directing.

The Wire star's also played a few decent gigs too, such as Glastonbury Festival... oh and Prince Harry's wedding to Megan Markle last year!

Netflix's Turn Up Charlie is set for release on 15 March 2019
