Sir Roger Moore has backed the new James Bond Daniel Craig, saying he will be 'absolutely super' in the role of the secret agent.

Sir Roger, who played Bond during the 1970s and 1980s, was unveiling a plaque at the Elstree film and television studios yesterday.

He said: "I am fed up with everybody attacking poor Daniel Craig, I am sure he is going to be absolutely super."

Sir Roger was unveiling the plaque to mark the six years he spent filming at Elstree when he played Simon Templar in the hit TV series The Saint.

He said: "I spent eight to nine years of my life literally working every day from crack of dawn till sunset, sometimes through the late nights. "It`s good to be back."

Sir Roger was joined by some members of the cast and crew of The Saint, and hinted there may be a remake in the pipeline, thanks to his son.

He added:"I think my son may be remaking it in the very near future and he might even give me a part."
