Sir Christopher Lee's moving Bafta fellowship speech

In 2011, at the age of 88, Sir Christopher Lee was awarded the Bafta fellowship in recognition of his decades on the big screen.

The moving ceremony saw the veteran actor given a standing ovation by his peers, while he spoke about his pride at taking the award.

I think there was a newspaper this morning that said I was going to cry - something I don't often do, in films at any rate.

But it's a very emotional moment for me. I'm thankful that I don't follow in the steps of the great Stanley Kubrick, whose award was posthumous.

– Sir Christopher Lee

After years of talk and anticipation, it seems the likes of Mr Tickle, Mr Bump and Little Miss Chatterbox will now grace the silver screen.

Fox Animation, the studio behind Ice Age and Rio, has signed a deal to make a film version starring the Mr Men and Little Miss characters.

No director or writer has been announced, but we do know it will be produced by Shawn Levy, who was behind the Night At The Museum series.

I loved reading these books as a kid, and now I love reading them to my own kids.

Their humour, wit and uniquely specific tone make this a truly classic series. I can't wait to help shepherd them to the big screen.

– Shawn Levy, producer

The books, created by Roger Hargreaves first went into print in 1971.

But they have not lost any of their popularity, with one being sold somewhere in the world every 2.5 seconds.
