EWAN McGREGOR sings the songs from musical Guys and Dolls every day to prepare for his appearance in a London West End production of the show.

The Scottish star has been taking lessons from a vocal coach and singing expert - who told him to keep practicing to get the hang of the songs he has to perform on stage.

He says, "Just singing them all the time gets them in your body and somehow, every time you start to sing them they come naturally."

He also reveals he and his family often take meals with a tape of him singing in the background: "Yes, there's a lot of bing-a-bing and a-bong-a-bong-bing at the table. We have a right laugh."
