Veteran actor Bill Nighy is worried fans of Dad's Army will hate the upcoming movie adaptation of the beloved British sitcom.

The Love, Actually star portrays John Le Mesurier's character Sergeant Arthur Wilson in the new film based on the wartime comedy Tv series, alongside Toby Jones as Captain George Mainwaring.

However, Nighy admits he was plagued by doubts during filming, telling Britain's The Times newspaper, "People may not forgive us for making Dad's Army... Every day I worried about it. I'd then look at Toby Jones as Captain Mainwaring and think, 'We might be Ok'."

The Dad's Army film, which also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones, is due for release in 2016.
