Colin Firth may be notching up his acting gongs at the moment, but the Oscar-nominated actor has revealed another ambition would be to join the Rolling Stones.

The actor, whose performance as the stammering King George VI has been critically praised, enjoys strumming the guitar in his spare time and fancies rocking out with the Rolling Stones.

Asked which band he'd like to join, Colin said: "It's a difficult one, but I'd probably have to go back to the Rolling Stones."

Asked if he would like to start up his own band, Colin, who picked up the Best Actor award at the Critics' Circle Awards, joked: "Who says I haven't?"

But he said his guitar skills would need some brushing up first.

"I played for an hour or two before, but I never got any better since I was younger," he added.
