Piers Morgan has previously called baby carriers "ridiculous", but turning on 007 was a step too far for some.
Another week, another "XXX is the favourite to be the next James Bond" story... and this week's latest hot tip as the next 007: Richard Madden.
Gemma Arterton has taken stock of her role in the Bond movie Quantum of Solace, re-writing her part for a new book.
The appointment of the True Detective helmsman was announced via the official Bond Twitter account, along with a release date now slated for February 14, 2020.
Following Danny Boyle's shock departure from the so-far-untitled Bond 25, MGM and Eon Productions have been scrambling to secure a replacement.
The release of Bond 25 could be delayed by as much as a year following the departure of director Danny Boyle, according to reports.
Danny Boyle departed the production of Bond 25 in a dispute with Daniel Craig over the movie's Russian villain, according to reports.

According to Page Six, Bond producer Barbara Broccoli has all but persuaded him to play 007 for the historic 25th movie in the series. Plus, it’s said that she’s really not keen on having the likes of Tom Hiddleston – said to have been in the frame to replace Craig – picking up the Walther PPK, as he’s ‘too smug’ and ‘not tough enough’. A ‘Hollywood source’ told them: “Daniel was very pleased with how ‘Othello’ went and the great reviews.
The list of contenders to succeed Daniel Craig as James Bond has just gotten a little shorter. In an interview with GQ, X-Men star Michael Fassbender said he’s not going to be 007.

It’s hard to know exactly what’s going on with Daniel Craig’s future as James Bond. Ever since the release of ‘Spectre’ it’s been widely assumed that Daniel Craig wouldn’t be returning as the world’s most famous spy.
Tom Hughes, who stars alongside Jenna Coleman in new ITV drama ‘Victoria,’ is apparently now in with a shot at taking over from Daniel Craig as the iconic MI6 agent. The unnamed source declares, “Barbara has told those around her how impressed she was with Tom in The Game.

Sometimes a movie comes out before people are ready for it – whether it’s because of the themes involved, what you see on-screen, or the style of filmmaking. Back when it was released in 1989, audiences were taken aback by Timothy Dalton’s brutal second Bond film. Fast forward to 2006 however and Daniel Craig’s version of Bond returned to Dalton’s gritty ways, though ‘Casino Royale’ was a huge critical and commercial hit.
You don’t know them and they don’t get the big bucks or grace the pages of celebrity magazines, but they are the amazing people who make your favourite actors look like superheroes on-screen. Say hello to the stunt doubles – you won’t watch an action sequence with any of these actors in the same way again.
Daniel Craig’s days as James Bond could be numbered. Who could take on the role of Ian Fleming’s gentleman spy next? Based on the bookies’ favourites (with a few humble suggestions of our own) here are the actors who we think could potentially be 007th official Bond…
