Colin Firth has returned home, days after being crowned king of Hollywood at the Academy Awards.

The Oscar-winning star and his Italian wife, Livia Giuggioli, arrived at Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5 on Wednesday.

The King's Speech took four awards at Sunday's Academy Awards, including best actor for Colin.

The relatively low-budget British film, about King George VI's attempt to overcome his stutter, also won best picture, best director and best original screenplay.

Accepting his award, Colin threatened to dance with joy and thanked his wife, who he admitted had put up with his "fleeting delusions of royalty".

He told the audience: "I have a feeling my career has just peaked."

The 50-year-old actor, who missed out on the Oscar he was nominated for last year for A Single Man, thanked his British fans, paying tribute to "all the people who have been rooting for me back home".

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
