Bond movie producer Barbara Broccoli will forever be indebted to former 007 Sean Connery after he gave up his bed so she could rest after falling sick on the set of You Only Live Twice.

The movie star had a special bed shipped to the remote island off the coast of Japan, where the cast and crew were staying, and when he learned that movie mogul Cubby Broccoli's young daughter was ill, he offered to sleep on the floor.

She recalls, "I got very sick... My parents thought I had sleeping sickness.

"The only thing to sleep on were traditional bed mats, no western beds. The only western bed had been shipped in for Sean Connery by the production and he went to my mother and said, 'Look, you have a sick child, take my bed.'

"So I actually slept in Sean Connery's bed, which I'm very happy to say!"
