Idris Elba greeted by excited fans on the Bafta red carpet
The Luther star said making a speech might be tough if he does nab a gong at the British Academy TV Awards.
The star – who was greeted by fans chanting his name as he walked the red carpet at the ceremony – is nominated in the leading actor category for his role in Luther.
He said: “Unfortunately I have lost my voice over the last two days so I’m a bit nervous if I did win, I won’t have much to say.”
Idris also brushed off rumours he would be the next James Bond, calling it the “biggest rumour in the world”.
The football fan also gave a shout-out to Arsenal, who drew 2-2 against Manchester City earlier.
“I just want to big up Arsenal fans,” he enthused. “Two-all, we worked hard.”
