James Bond star Ben Whishaw backs calls for a female 007

The 38-year-old will reprise his role of MI6 gadget master Q in the upcoming Bond film No Time To Die.’

He told the Press Association news agency: ‘Why not? Reinvention of these long-running things is good ‘ it’s essential in fact. So I think it could be amazing.’

Actresses named as possible future Bonds include Oscar-winner Charlize Theron and Emmy-winners Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Jodie Comer, though all three remain long odds with the bookmakers.

Pierce Brosnan, who played the secret agent in four films before handing over to Daniel Craig, previously gave the idea of a female Bond his backing.

Poldark’s Heida Reed once told her hips were ‘too big’ for modelling

‘I never made it onto the catwalk because back then, even though I was much smaller, my hips were considered too big for the industry and that’s stayed with me ever since.

‘But I see that changing now, like in @badgalriri @savagexfenty lingerie show, and it was so empowering to watch!’

The Icelandic star said: ‘My thighs jiggle a bunch and I have so much more cellulite than in this photo!

‘I struggle being consistent with exercise, I have a complicated relationship with food, and I’m working on all of that, but more importantly I want to work on embracing myself as I am right now.
