Daniel Craig has been voted the best James Bond ever.

Yep, we asked and you answered in your thousands, with the 52-year-old going up against some of the most iconic names in film.

But in the end, it wasn't even close.

More than 18,000 LAD readers voted in the final round, with Craig coming out on top with 51 percent of the vote, beating Sean Connery in second (23.9 percent), Pierce Brosnan in third (16.6 percent), and Roger Moore in fourth (8.5 percent).

In the earlier rounds of voting, Timothy Dalton, who starred in two movies, was knocked out quite comprehensively by Connery and Brosnan, only managing to get 3.7 percent of the vote.

While Aussie Bond George Lazenby fared even worse, receiving just 1.5 percent of the vote against Moore and Craig.

However, with such an iconic character, there was always going to be some tension, and there were plenty of people who really did not agree with the result. At all.

Commenting on the results, one Bond fan said: "Craig couldn't lace Brosnan's boots. Connery is the easily best Bond though."

A second disgruntled follower wrote: "Sean Connery and it's not even close. Goldfinger is the best bond movie to be made."

A third said: "Got to be young people voting on Daniel Craig ffs nowhere as good as Roger Moore."

While another added: "Conner or Moore easy, the golden age of Bond."

But the people have spoken, I'm afraid. And it follows on quite nicely from a previous vote we held, which saw Casino Royale voted the best Bond movie ever.

Craig has held the mantle of Bond for the past 15 years and is set to star in his fifth and final outing as the British spy in No Time To Die.

The 25th Bond film was due to premiere in London on 31 March, but Eon Productions' Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson had to reschedule the release.

Craig is set to star in his fifth and final Bond film.

At the time, a spokesperson for the film said: "MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, announced today that after careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of NO TIME TO DIE will be postponed until November 2020.

"The film will be released in the UK on November 12, 2020 with worldwide release dates to follow, including the US launch on November 25, 2020."

But if you're a fan of the franchise, with it being Craig's last hurrah it promises to be both special and very long, the longest Bond film ever, in fact. So that's exciting.

The film's synopsis reads: "James Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help.

"The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology."
