Part-time Queen frontman Adam Lambert will star in Fox's forth­com­ing version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, reports Billboard.

Lambo will play Eddie, a role ori­gin­ally brought to vivid life by Spice Girls bus-driving 'Blue Sky/Mad Mad World/The Good God Is A Woman And She Don't Like Ugly' hitmaker Meat Loaf.

Here's what Lambo had to say about it all when asked for a quote:

I grew up watching Rocky Horror, but could never imagine that I would be part of this new vision. Rocky Horror always made me feel like it was OK to celebrate my weirdness. Hallelujah, bless my soul! I love that old time rock-n-roll!”.

The two-hour special will 'air' in 'fall' (autumn) 2016.
