Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton has revealed he was given dining etiquette advice by none other than the Queen.

Appearing as a guest on The Graham Norton Show, Hamilton said: "I got invited to a lunch and was sitting next to the Queen.

"I was excited and started to talk to her but she said, pointing to my left: 'No, you speak that way first and I'll speak this way and then I'll come back to you'.

"She is a sweet woman and we talked about how she spends her weekends, houses and music."

Actor Ewan McGregor, Rita Ora and comedian Jack Whitehall were also among Norton's star-studded line-up.

Newly-appointed X Factor judge Ora described her new role as "an amazing opportunity".
