Zara Tindall has revealed which Hollywood actress she would choose to play her in royal drama, The Crown. During a chat with Alex Payne on JOE UK's House of Rugby, the Queen's granddaughter laughed and admitted: "I hope to God they don't go that far!" Zara's husband Mike quipped: "Series 35. Jason Statham, you're welcome."

On a more serious note, the former rugby star added: "Charlize Theron, maybe." "Yeah," Zara said. "Or Margot Robbie," Alex chipped in. "That's a good one too," Zara said. "Or Justin Timberlake's wife, Jessica Biel. Obviously, I look very similar to all of them!"

Former England captain Mike revealed he would also include his cousins-in-law Prince William, Prince Harry and Kate, saying: "Haz, front line man in the military, he'll crash that ball up for us, he'll dominate, he'll boss the tackle line."
