Speaking to The Radio Times, 32 year-old Whishaw was asked if he kept in touch with Daniel Craig - to which he replied: “We know that we’ll probably be back together in about ten months.”

The actor reportedly then realised what he’d said, quickly adding: “Well, hopefully. Let’s hope so!”

Too late Ben. Too late.

Whishaw, who played MI6 technical expert Q in last year’s ‘Skyfall’, also spoke about possibility of 007 star Craig returning to the role, after recent reports suggest the actor was unhappy with the quick turn-around to make the next Bond movie:

"I know that he’s doing the next three so I’m not thinking beyond that,” he said. “We’ve got to just get through those first.

"Well obviously I would like just for him to be in it more!" he joked.

This comes just a day after it was reported ‘Skyfall’ director Sam Mendes was “75 percent likely” to return to the franchise now that plans to film Bond 24 and 25 back-to-back had apparently been dropped. It would have been a four year project.

Last week ‘Skyfall’ took the BAFTA for Outstanding British Film, and is currently up for five awards, including Best Cinematography, at this Sunday’s 85th Academy Awards.
