Could we be any more excited for Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Apparently so, as Simon Pegg accidentally reveals that a Bond has turned to the Dark side.

At the London premiere of Man Up in London, Pegg was asked about his rumoured role in the next Star Wars movie, telling The Sun "I wasn't a Stormtrooper. Daniel Craig, he was a Stormtrooper."

Pegg quickly retracted his comments, saying "I shouldn't have said that.”

Daniel Craig as James Bond in Skyfall

The Skyfall actor has long been rumoured to have a small part in the upcoming movie, but until now no-one knew what that entailed. An insider has said: 'Daniel asked for some sort of secret cameo role - and was happy to have his name left off the posters. Fans will love trying to work out which covered up character is him.'

Recently Craig has been filming Skyfall follow-up Spectre, which will also star Ralph Fiennes as M, Monica Bellucci, Christoph Waltz, Andrew Sctott, Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw.

In other Star Wars news, director JJ Abrams has said Jar Jar Binks is going to be killed off ‘uncerimoniously’ in the new film.
