Queen reveals she keeps her Bafta on top of the TV

The Queen has revealed she cannot helping looking at her Bafta Award, which she keeps on top of her television.

Her Majesty, who received an honorary Bafta last year in recognition of her contribution to the TV and film industry, made the revelation as she spoke to 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen.

Asked by actress Jane Horrocks what she had received her Bafta for, the Queen laughed, "Can you not guess? I've only done one thing!" to which Lenny Henry joked, "This is Helen Mirren, she's brilliant."

Bafta chairman John Willis previously dubbed the Queen "the most memorable Bond girl yet" for her role at the London Olympics Opening Ceremony.
