Kevin Bacon has revealed his surprise at the Footloose remake, saying it makes him feel old.

The US actor's career was launched after he danced his way through the 1984 musical, which is being remade with up-and-coming actor Kenny Wormald stepping into his shoes.

"To realise that you're old enough to have a movie that you were in and it's time to remake it, it's a little bit of a shock, I have to say. It's not something that ever even occurred to me - that I would be alive when they would be remaking a picture of mine," he told Daybreak.

Kevin - who next stars in X-Men: First Class with James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender - is excited to see how it would work, however, adding: "But cool, let's see how it is. I'm looking forward to it."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
