'Hottest Bond ever' in Sydney for Skyfall premiere

JAMES BOND fans had the chance to get up close and personal with reigning 007 Daniel Craig as he toured Sydney on Friday.

Crowned the "hottest Bond ever", Craig took in the sites before walking a red carpet lined with screaming admirers at the Australian premiere of Skyfall.

The latest instalment in the Bond franchise last week eclipsed Titanic box office sales and became the highest earning 2D film in history.

It was the third time Craig starred as the much loved spy.

Skyfall opens in cinemas around the country on Thursday.
