Colin Firth would love to return to television, if a show would have him (ATTENTION JULIAN FELLOWES)

Colin Firth would love to return to his television roots - if only a show would have him.

The 53-year-old Oscar-winning actor - who made his name on TV almost 20 years ago as the wet Mr Darcy in period drama Pride And Prejudice - has since been enjoying success on the big screen.

On Tuesday night, Firth was lauded with a GQ Men Of The Year gong for leading man, to add to his already-bulging trophy cabinet.

Speaking at the awards party in the Royal Opera House, the Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and King's Speech star said he was tempted to make the move back to TV if he was offered a meaty enough role.

"I would definitely do TV, at the drop of a hat, if I was offered a good role," he said.

A string of established Hollywood stars, including Kevin Spacey in Netflix drama House of Cards and Halle Berry in sci-fi adventure Extant, have made the switch recently to TV, where drama is enjoying a golden age.

But Firth said: "I haven't really been offered anything."

I would love it if Colin would come and make an appearance on British TV, there just isn't enough of him here in the UK. He is after all one of our national treasures and us Brits need to see more of him. This man as well as being gorgeous to look at, is extremely talented and inspiring. Come on Colin we want to see you.
