Roger Moore: Olympics James Bond stunt not for Glasgow

Screen legend Roger Moore has dashed hopes of a 007 cameo at the Glasgow 2014 Opening Ceremony.

The 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony saw James Bond parachute from a helicopter with “the Queen”.

The former Bond actor, who is a Goodwill ambassador for Games partner Unicef, said the original stunt was “terrific” but was unlikely to be repeated.

“The Queen said no helicopters this time”, the 86-year-old joked to 5 live’s Peter Allen.

First broadcast on 5 live's Drive on Wednesday 23 July 2014.
