Speaking on her FUBAR Radio show, Lizzie bragged: “I’ve got his number, if you wish! But I wouldn’t give it obviously… to anyone.”

And when asked about his recent split from his girlfriend, Lizzie joked she put their potential coupling out to the Universe for a bit of cosmic ordering.

She said: “Yeah, I think I put it out to the universe when I got home… Please!”

Lizzie also revealed the pair chatted about the rumours he is in line to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond.

She said: “He was very excited about his award, obviously, and he seems to take an interest in my dress!

“I said to him ‘Are you going to do Bond?’ and he looked at me and said, ‘What do you think?’

“I said I think you should! He said ‘Thank you, so do I’.”

Richard was in good spirits after Bodyguard scooped two awards at Tuesday night’s awards show.

The hit BBC1 series, starring Richard Madden, won two gongs — for New Drama and Drama Performance.

It reigned supreme over A Discovery Of Witches, Girlfriends, Killing Eve and The Cry.

Richard, 32, who played Sergeant David Budd, beat off competition from Jodie Comer, 25, Jodie Whittaker, 36, Michelle Keegan, 31, and Cillian Murphy, 42.

Receiving the Drama Performance award, he praised co-star Keeley Hawes, 42, who played Home Secretary Julia Montague.

He said: “What an honour, I did not expect. And the biggest thank you to Keeley Hawes, I couldn’t ask for a better, more talented actress.”

He said: “We’re talking about it at the moment.”

Earlier, the Scot was alone on the red carpet.

His 18-month relationship with Les Miserables actress Ellie Bamber, 21, ended last month, as revealed by The Sun on Sunday.
