The latter plays a character called Elton John, but not the Elton John. Elton works at the same broadband company at Frost's character Gus, and joins him on his adventures into the paranormal.

Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy, the actor talked about the hardest part of the filming, stating that it was: "Probably keeping my trousers up, because I was always running.

"But no, for me it was... Before, I was a bit nervous about invoking the emotional side of Elton. Because I do a lot of comedy and Elton essentially is quite an emotional character.

"But as we continued filming I found it was really easy because the writing did me a favour. And bouncing off of everyone else just made it much simpler for me to kind of feel these things really quickly and go there. So it was... a really cool experience."

Truth Seekers will stream on Amazon Prime Video from October 30.
