Idris Elba has been named People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2018. And the Luther actor, who has been widely tipped to take over the role of James Bond, admitted the honour was a boost to his ego. Speaking about his new title, the 46-year-old revealed that, after being ‘picked on’ as a kid, it was a ‘nice surprise’. He explained: ‘I was like, “Come on, no way. Really?” Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. I was like, “Yeah, you are kind of sexy today”.

‘But to be honest, it was just a nice feeling. It was a nice surprise — an ego boost for sure.’ It’s definitely something to update your LinkedIn profile about, that’s for definite. He also opened up about his ‘awkward phase’, which he snapped out of the second he grew some facial hair. ‘I was very tall and skinny. And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, okay? I got picked on a little bit,’ he continued to the publication. ‘But as soon as I could grow a moustache, I was the coolest kid on the block. Grew a moustache, had some muscles, bonkers.’ And now he’s been named the Sexiest Man Alive and tipped to play James, so take that, bullies. But if Idris lands the role, he won’t be the first 007 actor to take People’s accolade, with Pierce Brosnan being named Sexiest Man for 2001.

And Sean Connery was the first Bond to be given the title, way back in 1989, so he’s in some pretty good company. The actor is set to return to our screens very shortly, with series five of Luther on the way. It has been more than three years since our favourite detective graced us with his presence – but a teaser for the next season shows he’s picking up right where he left off. Neil Cross, the show’s creator, previously explained: ‘We missed John Luther. We missed some old friends.’
