Stars of the James Bond movies, including Sir Roger Moore and Britt Ekland, will tour the UK as part of the film franchise's 50 anniversary celebrations.

Producers behind the 007 series have declared October 5 Global James Bond Day to mark 50 years since the release of Sir Sean Connery's first turn as the superspy in 1962's Dr. No.

A number of events have been planned to mark the occasion, including exhibitions across the world and a live concert in Los Angeles, and now it has emerged some of the franchise's stars will embark on a tour across the UK.

Moore will join Bond girls including Ekland, Eunice Gayson and Shirley Eaton, as well as Richard Kiel, who played infamous metal-mouthed character Jaws, for the 007 Days of Bond tour.

On Monday, Moore will travel to Scotland in an Aston Martin DBS car from 2008's Quantum of Solace to launch the tour at Eilean Donan Castle, where Pierce Brosnan filmed scenes for 1999's The World Is Not Enough.

A helicopter will also recreate a chase scene from 1963's From Russia With Love, which was filmed near Lochgilphead, in Argyll.

The tour will finish in London on September 24.
