Actor Dan Stevens has spoken to the BBC about reading more than 140 books in his role as a judge for the Man Booker Prize.

He told Gavin Esler that it had been an "enjoyable slog" reading all the novels.

Authors Will Self and Hilary Mantel are neck and neck to win the prestigious Man Booker Prize for fiction on Tuesday evening, according to bookmakers' odds.
