Former Bond girl Gemma Arterton has revealed she missed out on the role of a lifetime in the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony after strict producers refused to allow her a night off filming.

‘I was asked to be Mary Poppins in the Opening Ceremony, but I was filming in Puerto Rico and they wouldn’t let me go,’ the 26-year-old actress told me at the British Fashion Awards. ‘I was making a film called Runner, Runner with Ben Affleck. I watched the ceremony from my hotel room and cried my eyes out. It made me so proud to be British.’

Gemma, who is currently filming the musical comedy Walking On Sunshine with Kylie Minogue, added: ‘Kylie always looks fabulous. She has such a great body.’
