Daniel Craig, who recently played James Bond for the last time in No Time To Die, didn't quite use the Queen’s English when he was asked for his advice to whoever takes over the iconic role.

Speaking to actor and comedian Kevin Hart on the SiriusXM show Straight From The Hart, the actor said, "There’s a couple of things I’d say, but I mean, one is: don’t be s***."

"I would say you’ve got to grab it and make it your own. I think that’s the way to go forward," he added.

"I mean, I just committed myself to it as much as I possibly could and tried to sort of elevate it as much as I could. I hope I’ve left it in a good place, and I hope the next person can just make it fly. It’s an amazing franchise, I still think there’s a lot of stories to tell."

Speculation about who should take over as Bond has been mounting again now that Craig has departed the role with names like Dublin actor Aidan Turner, Tom Hardy, and Idris Elba mentioned.

However, Bond producer Barbara Broccoli recently stated that the search for the next 007 will not begin until next year. In 2018, she also ruled out the idea of a female James Bond.

Hart also asked Craig who he thinks will take over.

"It’s not my problem. I’ve got enough on my plate without having to figure that one out. That’s a brain ache. I don’t need that," he replied.

"Whoever it is, you know what, they’ll find someone brilliant, and it’ll be great. And I’ll be front and centre. I’ll be at the front seat of a cinema with my popcorn and a drink because I can’t wait."
