Taron Egertons decision to join Instagram was met with overwhelming joy from fans who bombarded him with comments such as finally, yas and GUESS WHO MADE AN INSTA.

But fair warning, Taron fans, for he is reading your comments.

Well, trying to read them, because 14 days in, he still hasnt quite got the hang of it.

I am enjoying it although I am totally useless at it – I was with Richard Madden the other day and he was literally having to move my finger around the screens, because he is very very good at it, he laughs.

It seems more gentle than Twitter, says Taron, who backed away from Twitter because some people can say some really strange and nasty things and that doesnt seem to be as prevalent on Instagram.

The 28-year-old Welsh actor joined for two reasons, because he has movies to promote – and as any self-respecting millennial knows, social media can help with marketing – and because all his friends were on it.

Its a great tool for helping spread the message about what you are up to, he says, and equally I think because there is an amount of interest in me from the people who have seen the things I have been in, says the Kingsman star, who up next will be appearing in a retelling of the classic Robin Hood tale.

I have been hesitant to talk about it as just a marketing tool as that sound calculating and sneaky, but all my mates are on it and thats what people do isnt it?

Robin Hood is out in the UK on 21 November.
