Tom Hiddleston's TV Choice acceptance speech was hilariously hijacked by Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba

It was a big night for Tom Hiddleston, as he was named the Best Actor for his role in BBC’s The Night Manager at the 20th annual TV Choice Awards on Monday.

But the 35-year-old was unable to attend the London ceremony as he’s in Australia filming Thor: Ragnarok, the follow-up to 2013′s Thor: The Dark World.

So the Loki actor did what he does best and put together an acceptance video thanking all of his fans.

But it didn’t quite go to plan, as he was completely hijacked by his co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba on the set of the forthcoming Marvel flick.

It started well, with Tom apologising for not being in London for the ceremony, and saying that he was sure everybody looked “lovely”. What a gent.

Chris then walked into view and took the TV Choice gong from Tom’s hand.

“Oh it that for us, for Home and Away, yeh?” he asked, making sure to name-drop the Aussie soap opera that made him famous.

Seconds later, Idris stalked in, joking that the award looked “really awful” and then asking why his drama series Luther wasn’t nominated. Oh dear.

Meanwhile, Tom tried to get his acceptance speech out as his colleagues hilariously gatecrashed his big moment.

Idris even managed to throw in a shout-out and a wink to his mother! Smooth.

Tom managed to regain the situation as he said: “Well, Chris and Idris are so happy about this, so am I. So, thank you very much! I loved doing The Night Manager, I loved making it.”

Chris, however, got the last words in: “Home and Away rocks… so does The Night Manager!”
