Star Wars: The Last Jedi will apparently keep up the tradition of celebrity cameos started by its predecessor, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Gary Barlow, a well-known popstar in the U.K., is the first celebrity to admit he's got a bit part in the film.

"I'm not a stormtrooper, but I am in it," Barlow told U.K. channel ITV (via The Hollywood Reporter). "Now I’ve said that, I’ll probably be out. I think the Star Wars people are so strict about what information [is out there]. So me saying that, I’ve probably just done myself out of a role."
 
Disney later confirmed the casting to ITV, according to THR.
 
Barlow is known for being the frontman of the British pop group Take That, and as host of the talent show Let It Shine
 
Star Wars: The Force Awakens had several secret celebrity cameos, including a role for James Bond actor Daniel Craig as a Stormtrooper, wearing a uniform that fully concealed his identity.
 
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is due out in theaters December 15.
