Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint is set to join in the Olympic celebrations by carrying the torch through Barnet on July 25.

The star will join athlete Daley Thompson, Olympic badminton silver medallist Nathan Robertson and 1966 World Cup winning goalkeeper Gordon Banks as the torch passes past Wembley Arena, Middlesex University and Barnet.
