Tom, who was on the show alongside Mark Wahlberg for their new film Uncharted, was asked if he will return to play Spider-Man following the box office success. 

He said: ‘I have had such an amazing run as Spider-Man, if it is my time to step down and the next lucky kid is going to step up, I will do so proudly.

‘I have achieved everything I wanted to achieve as the character, so if it is time then I will do it with my head held high, but if not, I will play this character forever because I love it.’

And with Oscars nominations announced next week, Ronan quizzed him if he was hoping to scoop an award for his portrayal of the comic book character. 

Tom said: ‘For us as creatives, I think I can speak on behalf of everyone at Sony and Marvel, the love and support we have had for the film from the fans has been so fantastic, that’s enough for us.

‘To see people in the audiences standing on their feet cheering, enjoying the process and the nostalgia of the celebration of three generations of cinema is pretty special to be a part of.

‘So should the Oscars happen it would be the icing on the cake but if not we are all very proud of what we have achieved.’

She said: ‘I can’t think of anybody more deserving to play Fred Astaire than you.

‘Everybody loved Fred, he made the dancing look so easy, but you and I know it’s because of all the hours of practice he put in.

‘You have done so many of those hours already with your early Billy training so my advice to you would be close your eyes, trust your feet, dance, soar, and show the world what it takes to make it look that easy.’

Touched, Tom asked Alex how they managed to do the video message and said Lynne helped his career massively because she sent him to his first Billy Elliot audition. 

It comes as Spider-Man: No Way Home is the 10th film in history to achieve the milestone, Deadline reported, after taking in $21.1 million over the weekend in global markets.
