Helen Mirren's doubts about royal re-appointment

Dame Helen Mirren has admitted to having misgivings about playing the Queen for a second time. The actress's 2006 Oscar-winning role as The Queen will be reprised in a West End play The Audience, which opens in February.

The 67-year-old, speaking after receiving the honorary European Achievement in World Cinema award in Malta on Saturday, said: "I don't usually like going back to things. I like to go forward but this is an extraordinary play."
