Colin Firth has chosen a ‘concious uncoupling’ with Paddington Bear

Colin Firth has dropped out of the Paddington Bear film, saying the character simply “didn’t have my voice”.

There doesn’t seem to be any bad feeling between the actor and producers though, and he even took a sly dig at Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow saying that “after a period of denial, we’ve chosen ’conscious uncoupling’”.

We hope he doesn’t bump into the couple any time soon!
