Sir Patrick Stewart has revealed he has applied for US citizenship in order to "fight and oppose" President Donald Trump.

The British actor said he had asked "Washington insiders" what he could do about the controversial US leader when visiting last month.

He told US show The View: " My wife and I, we had gone to Washington to see good friends of ours.

"We wanted to ask them 'what do we do, what do we do?"

Sir Patrick, 76, said: "All my friends in Washington said there is one thing you can do. Fight, fight, oppose, oppose."

"But I can't do it because I'm not a citizen.

"Maybe the only good thing from this election is I am now applying for citizenship because I want to be an American too."

Sir Patrick reprises his role as X-Men founder Professor X in Logan, which is out on Friday.
