He elaborated on what sort of look he claimed Aaron had gave him

Insiders said the Kick-Ass movie star is expected to accept the role as 007, taking over from Daniel Craig, who has played MI6’s most famous spy for 15 years.

But following the revelation, a surprise ‘feud’ has come to light between Aaron and a former I’m A Celebrity star.

Singer Boy George – who took part in the ITV reality series in 2022 – took to X – formerly Twitter – to recount an alleged incident with the actor.

The 62-year-old wrote: “Oh, the new James Bond is that bloke who sneered at me in the kitchen when I went to see Rufus Wainwright at Sam Taylor Johnson’s house.

“I bet he’ll be good. Why don’t they cast me as a baddie and then we can really fall out! Lol!”

He was then asked by a follower: “Flirty sneer, or no?” to which he replied: “Why are you in my kitchen horror with shades of disdain.”

The Sun revealed how Eon Productions, which makes the spy thriller films, is on course to start shooting this year.

A source said: “Bond is Aaron’s job, should he wish to accept it. The formal offer is on the table and they are waiting to hear back.

“As far as Eon is concerned, Aaron is going to sign his contract in the coming days and they can start preparing for the big announcement.”

Aaron, who is married to director Sam Taylor-Johnson, 57, was in the running for the top job alongside actors including Oscar-winning Cillian Murphy, Idris Elba, Henry Cavill and James Norton.

When asked last week whether he would step into Bond’s shoes, Aaron said: “I find it charming and wonderful that people see me in that role. I take it as a great compliment.”

Aaron started his acting career in 2000’s The Apocalypse, opposite Richard Harris, and appeared in 2008 teen movie Angus, Thongs And Perfect Snogging , as well as the Kick-Ass films, Avengers and 2022’s Bullet Train with Brad Pitt.

Insiders said Aaron’s performance as a psychopath in 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals, which saw him win a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor, opened the door to the Bond role.

A source said: “Aaron may not be the best known in his field but he is an incredibly talented actor.

Timeline of James Bond actors

Over the years there have been seven actors who have played 007.

The first ever James Bond film was in 1962, and this is who has played the lead role over the years:

Sean Connery – The late star was the first ever actor to play Bond, and reprised the role for seven movies.
George Lazenby – The star only played Bond once, but was the youngest actor to ever play the spy.
Roger Moore – The late movie star spent 12 years making seven films in the famous franchise.
Timothy Dalton – The smooth actor took over from Roger Moore and appeared in The Living Daylights and Licence to Kill.
Pierce Brosnan – The handsome star played Bond for four movies from 1995 to 2002.
Daniel Craig – The British star was the first blonde James Bond and the sixth actor to win the role in 2005.

“His role in Nocturnal Animals showed his depth as an actor.

“He is the perfect person to play Bond and will pick up well from where Daniel left off.”
