Jamie Dornan has jokingly called for a live TV cheek-to-cheek battle with Tom Hiddleston after the English actor pipped him to the top spot in the 'rear of the year' contest.

The Holywood actor appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in America on Wednesday night as he continued the promotion of his new film Anthropoid.

Dornan and Cillian Murphy star in the movie which centres on the plot to kill SS beast Reinhard Heydrich, one of the architects of the Holocaust.

While on the show the Fifty Shades actor was asked about a Belfast Telegraph article about Dornan coming second in the vote.

He was narrowly beaten to the top spot by fellow actor Tom Hiddleston, who has dominated headlines with his new love interest, US popstar Taylor Swift.

The victors were chosen from more than 10,000 votes cast by members of the public via the contest's official website between July 2015 and June 2016.

Host Stephen Colbert began: "I know that you follow the election. A very important election you have been involved in and it didn't go well for you. This is in the Belfast Telegraph, it says 'Fifty Shades Jamie Dornan has second best rear in the UK. ' That must be really hard to take."

To which Jamie replied: "I'm pretty p****d off that you've brought it up to be honest. I lost to Tom Hiddleston. The Hiddles-bum. I just think the whole way they came about it, wasn't that democratic. Why didn't they have a live show?"

He continued: "They could have done something with a live show. We could have been on stage."

To which the host quickly replied: "Well I have a live show and we have a stage right there. So please, come on, it's never too early to campaign for next year."

But when Dornan challenged the host to go first - he quickly declined.

The chat show host and Dornan finished the show by having a shot of tequila.

 

Dornan has also recently wrapped up filming on the second and third installments of the Fifty Shades triology.

Meanwhile fans of BBC drama The Fall are eagerly awaiting the programme's return where Dornan reprises his role as serial killer Paul Spector.
