Elliott: Spike Island is fans' view

Elliott Tittensor stars in new film Spike Island

Elliott Tittensor has said new film Spike Island speaks for the fans of the Stone Roses.

The Shameless actor stars in the film directed by Sex And Drugs And Rock And Roll's Mat Whitecross, which is about a group of teenagers travelling to Spike Island in Cheshire in 1990 to see the band's legendary performance there.

Elliott said: "This is a film which I believe is speaking from the fans and that's why hopefully people can relate to it. It's about these kids who idolise the Stone Roses. So hopefully the fans can recognise the love we've got for them."

Director Mat was keen to make the film as authentic as possible.

He said: "Anyone from that time regards that tie as slightly sacrosanct, it's their property. And I think that's absolutely right.

"We went back and looked at a lot of the footage from the time, we looked at the photos, we spoke to people who were there.

"That was one of the things I wanted to make sure was absolutely right, because I knew we'd get shot down if it wasn't."

::Spike Island is release in cinemas on Friday June 21

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
