King Colin and his Oscar arrive back home

Thursday March 3, 2011

Victorious Colin Firth is back in Britain.

The 50-year-old Oscar winner and his proud wife Livia landed in London on Wednesday after a long haul flight from LA.

Wheeling a small carry-on case behind him – presumably containing his best actor statuette – Colin looked pleased to be back on home soil.

The King's Speech actor – who lives with Livia and their sons Luca, nine, and seven-year-old Matteo in Chiswick, South London – has spent much of the past few months travelling between Europe and America promoting the British film.

And he has of course been busy attending awards ceremonies – prior to Sunday's win at the Oscars, Colin won a Bafta, Golden Globe and a SAG award for his turn as King George VI.
