Lord of the Rings actor Andy Serkis has mocked Donald Trump by reading out his tweets in the voice of Gollum.

The star, who voiced the computer-generated character in all three films, reprised the role on a popular American chat show.

Leaping onto the sofa, he got into character to read a few of the president’s most inane Twitter rants, including the infamous covfefe incident, which he mocked: “Wait, what’s covfefe precious?”

His performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert sent Twitter users into raptures, with one calling it “pure genius”.
