Bradley Wiggins is living up to his Mod image by recording with his hero Paul Weller on the new single by The Jam.
The cyclist had a memorable 2012 after winning the Tour de France, an Olympic gold medal and learning he is going to be given a knighthood in the New Year's Honours List. But 2013 could see him reaching new heights - he is teaming up with his hero Weller to record a track.
He will work with Weller and bassist Bruce Foxton on a new version of the track Window Shopping, which was previously released by the band last year. They will be joined on the single by guitarist Steve Cropper and Russell Hastings, lead singer in Foxton's new band From The Jam.
The track will see Russell take the vocals, while Weller will play a number of different instruments on the recording.
Bradley will have a small guitar cameo on the track, to be record in Weller's personal Surrey studio.
Bradley will also appear in the video for the single.
A source told the Mirror: "It's all incredibly exciting and has been in the pipeline for some time. Everything has finally been signed off though, and a date set for mid-February."
Wiggo is getting a reputation for his skills with a guitar as well as on his bike, as he took to the stage at the Sports Personality of the Year afterparty by shredding a few tracks for the delighted crowd.
Arg and Mark Wright
The two 'TOWIE' boys were basically inseparable before Mark left the show this year. Their foolish capers were one of the best parts of the show but Arg has taken up the mantle of TOWIE's resident laddish ladies man since his bezzie vacated the position.
Dale Winton and David Walliams
In what could be the the campest bromance in celebville, perma-tanned TV presenter Dale and 'Little Britain' star David Walliams are the best of mates and are often spotted dining out together.
Matt Cardle and Aiden Grimshaw
The two former 'X Factor' contestants bonded a lot during their time on the show, which Cardle won in 2010. Grimshaw started strongly but came a disappointing ninth!
George Clooney and Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt and George Clooney go way back and are widely recognised as best friends off the screen too. The partners-in-crime have been in four films together and also teamed up to start a charity.
Nick Grimshaw and Harry Styles
Grimmers and Harry are practically joined at the hip, and Hazza was there for his bezzie again when he launched his Radio 1 breakfast show <a href="http://www.metro.co.uk/showbiz/914269-fans-beg-harry-styles-to-join-nick-grimshaws-radio-1-show-full-time">, which went down so well that fans were begging Styles to join full-time.</a>
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are, like Clooney and Pitt, very close, having written 'Good Will Hunting' together, which won them an Oscar, and are planning to continue making movies together.
Ant and Dec
Where would British television presenting be without the veteran Geordie boys? Who else could we trust to laugh sheepishly at weird people on Britain's Got Talent? They've been in the biz for over twenty years together and can STILL stand the sight of each other - they even live around the corner from one another.
Kanye West and Jay-Z
Two supremely talented artists combined to form one rap supergroup this year for the album 'Watch The Throne', which finally united Jay-Z and Kanye West together on record. The duo, two of the most powerful me in music, are best of buds too!
Tom Felton and Rupert Grint
They might be mortal enemies in the films, but Ron Weasley and Draco Malfoy - or rather, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton are the best of friends off-screen. Grint even wore a 'I Love Tom Felton' t-shirt on the red carpet at one premiere.
Ed Westwick and Chace Crawford
Ed, centre, and Chace, right, two-thirds of the male contingent of Gossip Girl have propped up the hot, well-spoken rich male TV trope all on their own for the past few years - both on and off screen. Good men.
