Claire Foy was "not offended" when Adam Sandler repeatedly touched her knee during their appearance on The Graham Norton Show on Friday night.

The 51-year-old actor was talking about his experience at the Golden Globes with his mother many years ago when he kept tapping Claire's knee in a signal to her Golden Globe win for her role as the Queen in The Crown.

Sandler also tapped his Meyerowitz Stories co-star Emma Thompson's leg while he was chatting about their critically-acclaimed Netflix movie, as she sat on the other side to Sandler on Graham's red couch.

"We don't believe anything was intended by Adam's gesture and it has caused no offence to Claire," her representative told Mail Online when contacted for comment.
