The actor, who plays Renton in the 1996 classic and its upcoming sequel, told Chris Moyles on Radio X he watched the film in full for the first time at the premiere, revealing: "It was like looking back on my life in a way. It was so moving. I was in absolute floods of tears by the end of it."

Talking about the film's director, Danny Boyle, McGregor gushed: "I was totally moved by it."

He added: "I was so impressed with what Danny Boyle's done. I mean. He's really amazing isn't he?

"He’s just the best. The way he takes all the elements of film making-the acting, the script, the design, the cinematography and the music. 

"His real mastery of music. He’s really got his finger on the pulse; he knows about music; he knows what people are listening to. When he puts them altogether it’s in such a magnificent way.”

T2 Trainspotting is set for release on 27 January.
