Knickers in the post and the rather racy past of the hottest Brit in Hollywood

Those weary souls, trudging through Heathrow after emerging, blinking, from the Los Angeles red-eye, rarely cut the most hale and hearty of figures.

But if a touch of the leading man gloss appeared to have come off Damian Lewis as he exhaustedly navigated the arrivals hall earlier this week, he had a good excuse.

There weren’t a whole lot of upset winners at last Sunday’s Emmy Awards, but one of the few was Homeland star Damian Lewis, who beat out, among others, Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm and three-time winner Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad to take home the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.
