The Australian actress told the Bafta audience: “Hold on to your martini because Broccolis let me announce it here and now, here’s the scoop, I’m proud to announce that the new James Bond will be It’s me! Oh my god, yes!

“I don’t want people to go crazy because there’s going to be a female James Bond, it’s not going to change that much.”

She added: “This is my pitch for the new Bond movie – Bond comes to Australia and it can be called Die And G’day.

“It was on roller skates. It’s called Pizza Express but don’t worry, I won’t, I won’t sing.
