Next James Bond favourite James Norton shares what he’d bring to 007 after Daniel Craig

Asked what he’d bring to the role if cast as the next Bond, Norton added: “I’m a type one diabetic. How cool would it be to have a diabetic Bond?

“It would be wonderful for all those diabetic kids out there to think even a type one diabetic could be Bond!

“Other than that, I’d leave it to Daniel and the writers to carry on the legacy.”

Despite his popularity, the McMafia star has tough competition in the odds from the likes of Tom Hardy and Regé-Jean Page.

Billy added: “We all pretty much had the same goal in mind which was take care of Elvis and his needs.”

The Memphis Mafia would also hang out with The King at his concerts and on movie sets.

In another video, Billy remembered how he first started working for Elvis in 1961 when he was shooting Follow That Dream.

He said: “Boy, it was quite something to be able to live that experience at that time. My Mom and Dad got to come down too and my brother, to watching the filming of it all, that was another treat.”

Guy Martin claims Battle Of Britain show bosses were hoping he’d 'throw up' on camera

Guy Martin, 39, believes the bosses of his latest series Battle of Britain, hoped he would “throw up” during his “tough” training to become a fighter pilot. The Channel 4 show, which began on Sunday night, sees the presenter take on one of his toughest challenges yet, with a near disaster upon take-off.
In a new interview, the motorcyclist admitted the experience was like nothing he’s ever done before in his career, pointing out the distinct differences between transport on the ground and the air.

“It sounds daft,” he said, “But the hardest thing is that in a plane, it’s all in 3D.

“On motorbikes and in cars, I’ve been used to going left and right and back and forward. Simple. But in an aeroplane, you’ve got all that plus you go up and bloody down, which was weird for me.

“The slightest touch on the controls and it moves and dips all over the shop.”

And he thinks that the series bosses knew he may have a slight issue above the clouds.

“When we were looping the loop and doing evasive manoeuvres, you have to withstand incredible G-forces,” Guy explained.

“I ended up pulling 5G, which really makes you feel sick. The production team put a sick bag in the cockpit because I think they were hoping I’d throw up on camera!”

But that just made him more determined to pull it off perfectly.

But the fact he had an instructor with him throughout reassured him that he “wasn’t going to die”, despite being “b****y tough.”

Guy’s full interview is available to read now in Radio Times.

The final episode of Battle of Britain airs Sunday at 9pm on Channel 4.

‘Jon Jones moved up to heavyweight because he knows he’d lose to me!’ UFC champ Jan Blachowicz to RT Sport (VIDEO)

UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz says Jon Jones moved to heavyweight because he knows he’d lose to Legendary Polish Power and insists he’s ready to meet the former 205 lbs king in either weight class.

Blachowicz scored a career-defining win over the middleweight champ and heavy favorite to become a two-division ruler Israel Adesanya at UFC 259, which finally garnered him some long-awaited praise in the mixed martial arts world and entered him into the top 10 pound for pound rankings.

The 38-year-old Pole has chased a fight with Jones before, and the latter promised a fight after Blachowicz’s KO win over Corey Anderson in their rematch in February last year, only to vacate the belt in August after citing a salary dispute with the UFC and a desire to compete north of 205.

In an interview with RT Sport from his home in Poland’s capital of Warsaw, Blachowicz said he would have “no problem” meeting Jones either side of 205 lbs, and revealed who is immediately next in line for a shot at his title.

“You know, I can meet him at 205 or at heavyweight. I don’t care. So I’m just waiting, you know, for the next fight, for the next decision. If the UFC gives me you know, Jon Jones I would be happy. If not, I’ll be happy with my next opponent,” Blachowicz said. 

“I think my next opponent will be Glover Teixeira but we will see. But if Jones Jones he would like come back to… if but you know, I think he will stay at the heavyweight. But if he changed his mind. I mean, I’m waiting for him. No problem.”

The win against Adesanya went some way to legitimizing Blachowicz’s light-heavyweight reign, as some reckoned his KO win over Dominick Reyes to win the belt to be somewhat fortuitous and lead many spectators, including respected UFC 

After Francis Nagannou’s recent thunderous knockout of heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic at UFC 260, Dana white joked it was time for Jon jones to start moving down to the middleweight 185lbs division, but the man himself remained defiant his weight gain would not be in vain and instead would push for a $ 10m pay day with the newly-crowned Cameroonian.

Despite earlier stating that  he “did not understand” Jones’s decision to move up to heavyweight, Blachowicz thinks there may be some logic in the 33-year-old former champion’s plan.

“You know, I understand him you know. He do almost everything at 205. Almost. Because he don’t fight against me. That’s why he do almost everything,” Blachowicz said.

“And I understand his decision because I think he knew that when he gonna fight against me he’s gonna lose this fight you know so he do this decision ‘okay now I go to heavyweight, if I go to heavyweight, if I lose in heavyweight you know no problem because you know I will no stop talking okay but that was not my weight’.

“That was, just you know something like this. And then he come back to maybe he will come back to 205 we’ll see. 

“But then he gonna meet me. So we’ll see. I’m waiting for him. He promised me this fight after when I knock out Corey Anderson so I’m just waiting for him but you know we’ll see.

“Come back to 205 he have to fight against me because you know I’ve got now I have the champion I’m the king of 205 so if you want come to 205 – I’m gonna be you know the first to have to fight him, fight against him.”

Jones looks like he has his gaze firmly fixed on meeting Ngannou, but has called the proposed $ 10million evaluation of the offer to face the Cameroonian “way too low”.

‘If I’d scored more, maybe he’d still be here’: Misfiring Timo Werner laments lack of goals may have cost Lampard Chelsea job

Presented by RT.com

Timo Werner has been anything but a rousing success since joining Chelsea from RB Leipzig last summer and the German forward admits his lack of goals may have played a part in Roman Abramovich’s decision to sack Frank Lampard.

Werner was hailed as the new focal point of Chelsea’s forward line when he signed a big-money deal to spearhead the Blues’ attack as part of Abramovich’s major investment into the club’s playing staff over the summer months.

So far though, the 35-times capped international has flattered to deceive up front, finding the net just five times in 24 Premier League appearances ahead of Sunday’s showdown with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.

Werner has admitted that he has struggled to adapt to the pace and physicality of the infamously combative Premier League after an impressive campaign in the Bundesliga last season which saw him claim 28 goals in just 34 appearances.

And if he had been able to hit the ground running in West London, he says that things might just have been different for Frank Lampard – the club legend who was compelled to fall on his sword in response to a prolonged spell of poor form, and was subsequently replaced by Werner’s compatriot Thomas Tuchel.

When you come here to play as a striker and be the man to score the goals, of course I felt a little bit guilty that I missed so many chances,” Werner told Sky Sports. “For the club, for the old manager but also for me because I want to score all the time and as much as I possibly can.

“Of course, if I’d scored four or five more goals maybe the old manager would still be here because we’d maybe have won two or three games more but you can’t look too much into the past because there are too many games ahead of us.”

Chelsea’s initial signs under Tuchel have been promising. The club remain undefeated under his tenure, even if the type of dazzling, free-flowing style of football craved by Abramovich has yet to bed in. 

Installing the German into the Chelsea top job was thought to be – in part at least – designed to coax improved performances from Werner and the other megabucks summer investment from the Bundesliga, Kai Havertz.

And the signs, at least initially, are promising.

I understood the old manager very well,” he said. “It was not because of the language, but when you can talk German to someone, there are things he can explain to me easier than the old manager could. It’s different when you talk to someone in your own language because one word is enough to make a sentence completely different.

For me, that was the thing he changed. He knows me and his assistants know me from the Bundesliga. He gave me trust back and confidence back to be the Timo from the Bundesliga, to be back at the top and scoring goals.”

Everyone associated with the club – even Lampard, the man who campaigned so vigorously to bring Werner to London – they will be hoping that Werner’s Premier League apprenticeship soon begins paying off.

And there is no better place to start than at home to Manchester United.
