Regé-Jean Page backed for new 007

As it stands, Page has odds of 20-1 to be the next James Bond and may even be hinting he’d like a stab at the role in the currently pinned tweet on his official Twitter account.

The Bridgerton star posted a short clip of his Duke of Hasting walking towards the camera before raising a Roger Moore-esque eyebrow.

While the caption above the video read: “Regency, royalty. Shaken and stirred.”

Bond producer says there will never be a female 007

Ms Broccoli, daughter of Cubby Broccoli, who adapted Ian Fleming's spy novels to film, insisted the character was written for a man to play.

"Bond is male. He's a male character. He was written as a male and I think he'll probably stay as a male. And that's fine."

She told the Daily Mail turning male characters into women isn't the right approach.

"Let's just create more female characters and make the story fit those female characters."
