Your Song hitmaker Elton John has revealed the secrets of his rehab diaries for his upcoming biopic starring Tom Hardy.

Billy Elliot writer Lee Hall, who has penned the script for the project, claims 67-year-old Elton personally handed him his private journals.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Hall said: "One day he took me to his house and opened a safe and he had all his private diaries that nobody had seen from when he was in rehab and left me there to read all his stuff.

''But he's never commented once on the script, he hasn't interfered at all.''
