Tom Hiddleston took a lot of flak last night for a speech that seemed to go on a bit and maybe came off a little self congratulatory

But as is the way with these things, Hiddleston has taken to social media to explain his side of the story - and he's mortified.

Look, that's fair enough. We are quick to jump on people when they make mistakes. He's 100% owned up to it and explained why it came off in such a way. 

Fair play, Tom - well said. Now, bring on Skull Island and maybe a second season of The Night Manager.
