    James Bond legend Roger Moore pooped himself while filming a speedboat scene in Live and Let Die, his diaries have revealed.

    The actor, who died at the age of 89 in 2017, played 007 more than any other actor – seven times between 1973 and 1985. Writing about his experiences making Live and Let Die – his first outing as James Bond in 1973 – he wrote how his life "flashed before his eyes" after crashing a speedboat into a shed in New Orleans.

    In an extract from The 007 Diaries, by Roger Moore, he wrote: “They say when death is imminent your entire life flashes in front of your eyes. The only thing flashing before my eyes was a large, corrugated iron shed sticking up out of the Louisiana bayou, which I was approaching at a fair old 60mph in an out-of-control boat.

    “I knew I was going to hit it – and there was nothing I could do about it.” He continues: “I wound up in a heap on the floor, clutching my mouth, my knee throbbing, my shoulder numb, and what felt like fifty-four thousand teeth in my mouth all at once being slowly mangled up into little bits of gravel.

    “Here I was, just about to start playing James Bond, with no teeth.” He added: “I practised taking a boat fast, at 20, then 30, then 40, then 50, then 60mph around sharp U-bends.

    “I pushed my luck and we limped back to shore with a badly holed boat and likewise body. I was piled into a car, still in my swimming shorts, and driven back to New Orleans.

    “My teeth, I felt, were the most important, so I saw a dentist first. A quick X-ray showed a fractured front tooth, which by then was hurting like mad.

    “Then I was carted off to a clinic, where the doctor gave me the good news that my leg wasn’t broken and Luisa (Roger Moore’s wife) gave me the bad news that my pants were dirty. After what I had just gone through I wasn’t the least bit surprised.”

    The 007 Diaries, by Roger Moore were originally published in 1973 – but have been out of print for more than 40 years – and are now available in a fine press edition for £350.
