A LEYLAND couple were shaken and not stirred when they discovered a former 007 at their wedding in Italy.

Eagle-eyed Lancashire snapper Michael Green was surprised when he spotted GoldenEye star Pierce Brosnan filming his latest Hollywood flick.

Michael, 40, was in Sorrento, Italy, to photograph the wedding of Amanda and Wayne Reid, from Farington Moss, Leyland.

Michael said: “I was on the way to the wedding in the morning, to the hotel where the bride was.

“Off the main drag in Sorrento, there’s lots of little side alleyways with these lovely pizza restaurants and bars.

“There was this massive film crew so, being a nosey beggar, I walked down.

“I think the security, for some reason, were distracted or, because I had a camera, they thought I was someone official.”

And sitting there, enjoying the Italian sunshine, was the suave, former James Bond star.
