Craig, who has enjoyed record breaking success with the latest 007 film Skyfall, as well as a cameo appearance in Danny Boyle’s Olympic Games opening ceremony, won over a quarter, 26 per cent, of the votes for favourite actor.

Meanwhile, his on-screen boss Dench, garnered 27 per cent of the votes, with Britons clearly impressed with her character M’s central role in Skyfall, the Sky Movies poll showed.

Ian Lewis, director of Sky Movies, said: “It’s been another bumper year for film and for Bond in particular.

“We know Britain loves Bond and clearly the talents of Daniel Craig and Dame Judi Dench have no small part to play in this.”

After five films together, including this year’s Dark Shadows, Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter were in second place with 11.5 per cent and 10 per cent respectively.

Men In Black star Will Smith finished third in the male vote while Christian Bale, who played Batman in the Dark Knight Rises, won the battle of the superheroes with seven per cent of the vote, compared to Iron Man Robert Downey Jr’s six per cent.

It was also a good year for funny women, with What To Expect When You’re Expecting star Cameron Diaz and Ted star Mila Kunis coming joint third in the actress list.

And Anne Hathaway, who played Catwoman in the Dark Knight Rises and is in the soon-to-be-released Les Miserables, rounded off a good year for superhero films, coming in fifth with 5.7 per cent of the vote.
