Tom Holland's attempt at dry January lasted just 12 hours.

The 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' actor had planned to spend a month without alcohol but admitted his resolve weakened very quickly, along with the rest of his family.

Tom shared a Tweet from his father, Dominic Holland, who had posted: "Called time on dry January embarrassingly early but we have a full house – it's cold and dark outside…(sic)"

The 24-year-old actor then retweeted the post and, along with a crying laughing emoji, admitted: "I was doing really well…. for about 12 hours (sic)"

Tom was likely to have been making the most of some quality time with his family over the festive period because he's got the third 'Spider-Man' movie to keep him busy over the next few months.

The actor revealed in October - a month before production was due to begin - that he had received his new script but after previously running into trouble for accidentally revealing spoilers, he's promised to stay tight-lipped this time.

He said on his Instagram Story: "Hey, so, I just got home and I’m in Atlanta. I’ve just been delivered a package. That package is an iPad, and on that iPad is a script.

“And that script is 'Spider-Man 3', so I’m about to find out what I’m going to be doing for the next five months.

“I’m not going to tell you anything about it, because I’ve learned my lesson.”

It was recently claimed Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire, who have both played the web-slinger in previous films, are to appear in the new movie.

However, a spokesperson for the film simply said: "Those rumoured castings are not confirmed."

But one familiar face who will appear in the film will be Benedict Cumberbatch, whose character Doctor Strange will become Peter's new mentor following the death of Tony Stark / Iron Man - played by Robert Downey Jr. - in 'Avengers: Endgame'.

The 'Sherlock' star is about to play Doctor Strange in a standalone sequel 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness'. As the movie will explore alternate realities, and it has been speculated that this is how Strange will cross paths with Spider-Man.

And Jamie Foxx is to return to his role as villain Electro – a part he had previously played in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' in 2014 when Andrew starred as the titular hero.
