Tom Hiddleston's Instagram account appears to have been hacked.

The actor set up the social media account two weeks ago, and has so far posted pictures of himself from the set of his forthcoming movie Thor: Ragnarok.

But a spate of bizarre new images and messages on his page seem to have been posted by somebody else.

His publicist has been contacted for comment.

The intrusion appeared to start when a black and white hooded figure was posted.

This was followed by screenshots of other Instagram pages and Snapchat accounts that his account had started following.

His Instagram bio was also changed to read: "TEAM.ERORR.4.0.4 @rjz @ikp @dr.rghx @u52 @x3azmii @p9j @x.hrb."

Despite having one million followers he only follows four people from his account.

Some of the comments that were posted alongside the images ensured that the actor would soon regain control of his account.

One read: "Don't worry. We will back account to tom .. @ikp."

Another read: "Follow me. I will you some thing important."

The posts have now been deleted.
