Story highlights

The 49-year-old man is charged with voyeurism. 

In what comes as a piece of shocking news from the set of next James Bond film, a man has been arrested for allegedly planting a hidden camera in the women’s toilet. 

The 49-year-old man is charged with voyeurism, a spokesperson for Thames Valley Police told CNN. He was arrested on Friday.

The shooting on the next Bond film, ‘Bond 25’ as it is referred to at the moment, is going on in the Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England.

This is most likely to be the last film in which Daniel Craig will play the beloved role of spy James Bond as Robert Pattinson has been in talks to replace him in future films of the franchise. We don't have much update on that but the 'Twilight' star has been confirmed to play the next Batman replacing Ben Affleck. 

We earlier told you that Prince Charles recently visited the set and met with Daniel Craig as well as Naomie Harris and Ralph Fiennes, who portray the role of Moneypenny and M respectively. 

Among other things, the set came to notice when a controlled explosion during filming injured one crew member and damaged the exterior of the 007 movie stage. 

The news came weeks after Daniel injured his ankle ligaments while shooting in Jamaica. This led to the filming being cancelled for a week as he underwent surgery.

There are a few additions to the star cast as Oscar-winner Rami Malek was earlier confirmed to play the film’s villain. Other new additions include Ana De Armas, Lashana Lynch, David Dencik, Billy Magnussen, and Dali Benssalah. Returning cast members include Lea Seydoux, Jeffrey Wright, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear, Naomi Harris, and Ralph Fiennes.

The film will be shot in various locations including London, Italy, and Norway. Boyle was replaced by Cary Joji Fukunaga, who is directing the film with a script by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
