Having picked up an Academy Award for her role as Queen Anne in Yorgos Lanthimos's absurd period drama The Favourite earlier this year, you'd think Olivia Colman would be feeling pretty confident about playing a monarch again in the eagerly-anticipated third season of Netflix's The Crown.

But she's surprisingly nervous; not about being called 'Your Majesty' or petting a Corgi every now and then, but of taking over as Queen Elizabeth II from original actor Claire Foy.

"It’s horrendous," she joked in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly. "Everyone loves Claire, so I have got the worst job in the world at the moment.

I Call Bull: Nope she was joking so this is #ClickBait
