As the old saying goes, it's a dirty job but sure look, someone has to do it.

We could spend all day making up dirty puns for this but we're much more mature than that.

Following Olivia Colman's win at the Golden Globes for Best Actress – Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, 'The Favourite' got the fantastic news that it received 12 nominations at the British Academy Film And Television Awards or BAFTAs as they're known.

The movie, that was produced by Element Pictures in Ireland, is going from strength to strength and it's no wonder it's been so successful with a cast that contains Olivia Colman as Queen Anne, Rachel Weisz as Lady Sarah, Emma Stone as Abigail and Paul Swaine as... Wanking Man?

This is not a photoshop, or some 'fake news' meme. According to the credits of The Favourite, Swaine is given the coveted role of 'Wanking Man'.

The Hollywood Reporter said that: "Any film whose cast credits include 'Wanking Man' is never going to be a prim and proper period piece".

We're sure that Swaine was up all night practicing for this role. We'd say he had it well mastered by the end too.
