John Travolta brought one of his most iconic roles back to life over the weekend - thanks to James Corden and The Late Late Show.

Featuring on the show alongside writer-director Sam Taylor-Johnson and actor husband Aaron Taylor-Johnson, the duo revealed they are big fans Pulp Fiction and had previously dressed up as Mia Wallace and Travolta's character Vincent Vega for Halloween.

Flattered by their comments, the Grease actor revealed that the iconic film's famous dance scene was actually inspired by moves he learned as a child.

"Quentin [Tarantino] was dead-set on both of us doing The Twist," he explained, referring to his dance partner Uma Thurman who played Mia in the 1994 film.

"Which is a very fun dance but it's limited to how long someone wants to watch someone do The Twist. So I said to Quentin, 'You know when I was growing up, there were novelty dances, there were dances like The Swim, and The Batman, and The Hitchhiker, and The Tighten-Up. Maybe we should widen the spectrum.' He said, 'Show them to me!' And I did. And he said, 'Okay let’s do more than the twist.' That's how it came to be."

But the stand out of the segment was when the 65-year-old rose to his feet to teach everyone the moves.

Seeing Travolta, even for just a second, bring back Vincent's moves is a very cool moment for fans ... even without his famous hair!
