People have been queuing up in anticipation of tonight’s UK premiere of Twilight: Breaking Dawn: Part 2 - the fifth and final instalment in the blockbuster franchise.

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are set to make their long-awaited appearances on the red carpet.

But dedicated fans have been camped out for most of the day, eager to catch a glimpse of the stars despite today’s chilly conditions.

They might have been warmed up by news that Robert, 26 has not ruled out returning to the film at a later date

He told US TV show ‘Extra’: “If they still hire me to play a 17-year-old when I’m 40 or whatever, I would do anything.

“Definitely ... I’d be interested next year, probably.”

Kellan Lutz, who plays Emmett Cullen, would be happy to go back to the role for a spin-off with his character.

He said: “I’d love to show some more backstory or show more of the relationship between Rosalie and Emmett. So I would definitely come back.”

Robert also revealed he is interested in working with girlfriend Kristen Stewart - who plays Bella Swan - again, admitted they have discussed it.

He added: “It could be a difficult thing to find.

“But there’s like 10 actresses to work with, unless you’re going to hire an unknown, no one hires anyone other than the 10 actresses for a lead, it’s very strange.”
