Bond boss says No Time To Die WILL be Daniel Craig's final outing as 007

THERE is no chance of Daniel Craig’s James Bond dying another day – the upcoming movie No Time To Die really will be his last time playing the world’s most famous spy.

The actor appeared to have a change of heart earlier this year when it was revealed he told bosses not to make a big deal of it being his last movie as 007, suggesting a change of heart.

But now producer Barbara Broccoli has insisted Daniel has put away his spy gadgets for the last time.

She said: “There’s a few lines that are in the script that Bond fans will love from the books and some wonderful locations that are described in the books.

“We consider this film to be a classic Bond film but with a modern twist.

“It’s also vitally important because it is the fifth and final one that Daniel Craig is going to be doing, so it’s a culmination of everything his portrayal of the character has been through and it ties up all the storylines.

“It’s a pretty epic film, I have to say.”

Daniel first played Bond in Casino Royale in 2006 but after Spectre in 2015 he said he would “rather slash my wrists” than play 007 again.

However, in March this year a movie source said: “I don’t think Daniel is finished with James Bond, despite his previous claims. He was in this same position after Spectre came out, where he said publicly and loudly that he was done and then, as time passed, he just wasn’t.

“There is something about this part that scratches an itch and he’s not prepared to see it go to another actor yet.” The latest film, due to hit screens on November 12, has been dogged with problems including Daniel getting hurt and Covid-19 delaying its release.

But if Bond fans were disappointed by the comments made by Barbara in the No Time To Die podcast, there’s one man who won’t be upset.

Earlier this month, bookmakers stopped taking bets on Tom Hardy to be the next 007 and no doubt this latest assurance that Bond bosses will be looking for a replacement will be music to his ears.

I look pretty good in a tux — I might even throw my hat in the ring.

Scarlett's secret snog

SCARLETT Moffatt has revealed she snogged a girl at university to “experiment” while working out what she liked.

The ex-Gogglebox star confessed she got off with one of her best pals after saying Katy Perry’s track I Kissed A Girl reminded her of her days at York St John University.

Asked on last night’s episode of ITV2’s Celebrity Karaoke Club whether she had ever snogged a woman, Scarlett replied: “Yes, because everyone has, haven’t they?”

The presenter, who has been in a relationship with police officer Scott Dobinson for more than a year, added: “I feel like you have to, to know if that’s what you like. Everyone says when you go to uni you need to experiment and all that stuff, so I kissed one of my good friends.”

Scarlett was joined on the show by former Towie star Jess Wright, who revealed she would be up for kissing women – if only to avoid men with hygiene issues.

Jess, who recently announced her engagement to William Lee-Kemp, said: “I feel like I would rather kiss one of my friends, who I know is clean and gorgeous, rather than a random bloke that’s not.”

I’ve got no chance then.

PALOMA Faith has moaned about an unfortunate side-effect after revealing she is expecting a second child. The singer shared on Instagram: “Apparently, like my last pregnancy, I’ve started snoring. Why do we snore in pregnancy?”

Demi sings of love-split ex

DEMI Lovato’s new song will be painful listening for her ex-fiance because it’s clearly all about him.

The singer split from actor Max Ehrich at the weekend after six months together – two as an engaged couple. The Young And The Restless star Max later claimed he found out he’d been dumped through the Press. 

And it appears she’s been quick to break her silence on the matter, with pointed lyrics in her new song Still Have Me, which she tweeted yesterday with the caption: “Music is always there for me…”

In the ballad, Demi sings: “It feels like someone’s stolen all the light I ever had.” And she adds: “Everything around me shattered, all the highs are now just lows. But it doesn’t even matter, ‘cause I’d rather be alone.”

And in the chorus, she belts out: “I don’t have much but at least I still have me. I still have me and that’s all I need.”

Jesy's joys in blue

IT is impossible to feel blue when Jesy Nelson is around.

And it seems her boyfriend, actor Sean Sagar, feels the same.

Jesy posted this snap of herself on Instagram with the caption, “You turn my whole world Misty Blue,” taking inspiration from Dorothy Moore’s 1976 love song of the same name.

And Sean was one of the first to comment underneath the post, telling the Little Mix singer: “You’re turning mine with this pic . . . ”

The pair, who started dating in the spring, kept their romance under wraps for several weeks but have since been pictured holding hands while heading out on dates.

Jesy has not always been the luckiest in love in the past but it seems she has found a good one with Sean. And if anyone deserves their fairytale ending, it’s Jesy. With this “Once upon a time” tattoo on her bicep, she’s already started writing it.

Millie aims for Amy film role

MILLIE Bobby Brown has put herself forward to play Amy Winehouse in an upcoming biopic about the late music icon.

The Back To Black singer’s father Mitch has been working on the film for several years. Now Millie is hoping she will land the lead role as she is a massive fan of her music, despite having only been seven when Amy died in 2011.

When asked in the US if there was a historical character she would like to portray on screen, the Stranger Things actress said: “I wouldn’t say she’s historical but I would love to play Amy Winehouse.

“I personally think she is like an icon to R&B and blues and basically the whole culture of music. I just love her music and I really was impacted by her whole story – so I would love to play her.”

But the makers may have to wait a while for Millie to get away with the scenes of sex, drugs and rock’n’roll which characterised Amy’s life, given she is only 16.

The Sun revealed in 2018 how a deal had been signed to make the movie, although Mitch said at the time he hoped to find “an unknown, young, English – London, Cockney – actress who looks a bit like Amy”, for the role.

Millie doesn’t hit all of those notes but I’m sure she would do Amy justice.

Becky steps it up

BECKY Hill has proved she has got one of the most powerful voices in the charts with her new single Space.

The huge track will be released tomorrow but I’ve been given a sneak peak at the video, which this exclusive behind-the-scenes photo is taken from.

Becky has racked up 1.5billion streams and eight Top 40 hits including floor fillers Gecko (Overdrive) with Oliver Heldens, which reached No1, and Wish You Well with Sigala.

Her latest release is about taking a break from a lover.

She said: “Space is a very personal song. It’s the most honest I’ve ever been with myself, let alone the public. This song has felt like a step up for me as an artist – a dancefloor ballad that tells a story.

“It really gears up for what to expect from my debut album.”

It’s Becky at her best.

Dagny

LADY Gaga and Dua Lipa have led the resurgence of pop this year – but Norway’s Dagny is hoping her upbeat tunes will also brighten up 2020.

The singer-songwriter releases her brilliant debut album Strangers/Lovers tomorrow and reckons her music is what’s needed right now.

In an exclusive chat, she said: “For me, there’s nothing niche about pop. But I suppose it had become that because there was a much bigger wave of R&B and rap in recent years.” She added: “I feel like a lot of my fans listen to my music to energise themselves.

“That’s a nice contribution to music – to make something that makes people feel good.”

Last year, Katy Perry used Dagny’s track Love You Like That as the basis for her single Never Really Over.

Speaking about the moment she was asked if her song could be used by Katy, she said: “I was a teenager when she came out with her Teenage Dream album, so it was completely surreal to get that call.” 

Congratulations to her.

THE Greatest Showman actress Zendaya is in talks to play Ronnie Spector in a biopic about the Sixties icon. She was the first choice of the singer, who shot to fame as a member of The Ronettes and had hits including Be My Baby. The movie will show her abuse at the hands of her ex-husband, producer Phil Spector.

SHAWN Mendes has announced he will return tomorrow with a new song called Wonder, which will feature on his fourth album of the same name and is due for December 4. In a trailer for the single shared on Twitter, he sang: “You have a million different faces but they’ll never understand, unless you let them in.”

A STAR of 13 Reasons Why is campaigning to land the role of Madonna in the superstar’s upcoming biopic. Anne Winters, who plays Chloe Rice in the Netflix series, begged on Instagram for her fans to get the Like A Prayer singer’s attention. Madonna is now believed to have contacted her to discuss the part.

SAM Smith’s only concert of the year will be streamed from London’s Abbey Road Studios on October 30, the same day the star releases third album Love Goes. Fans can get tickets by pre-ordering the record online. James Bay has announced a live streamed concert at Shakespeare’s Globe in London on October 21.
