Whitehall said he is “back on the Hollywood diet” in the run-up to next month’s ceremony.

“I’m going full Bloom – Orlando Bloom – in preparation of being back on stage,” he said.

“It’ll have to be brain oil and new oats, whatever it is you need to get that Hollywood physique.

“There will be training sessions and Peloton rides to be camera ready.”
