Tom Hiddleston was given a, perhaps unsolicited, helping hand as he accepted his TV Choice Award for Best Actor. The star was being recognised for his role in The Night Manager but had to deliver his acceptance speech remotely from Australia, where he is currently filming Thor: Ragnarok.

Tom got some surprise help from his co-stars Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, and Idris Elba, also known as Heimdall.
Appearing in a pre-recorded video and addressing viewers back in London, Tom, 35, said: "I'm so sorry I can't be there tonight. I'm sure you all look lovely... I don't really have anything to offer you."

"Oh is that for us? For Home and Away, all the work I did," said Chris, as he walked into the frame and grabbed the award off Tom. "Thanks everyone at Channel 7, loved working..."
"What's going on? What's that?" asked Idris, popping up and joining the conversation. "Oh man that's really awful innit. What's this for?" he said, yanking the accolade out of Chris' hands.
After Tom revealed it was for The Night Manager, Idris joked: "How come Luther didn't get nominated?"

"Home and Away rocks... and so does The Night Manager," said Chris, as he also proceeded to walk off.
