The hunky actor attempted to seduce busty Elle Bretagne after seeing phone snaps of her.
Despite using his best pulling tactics – which included nuzzling her neck and even growling – he had to make do with just a cuddle.
Elle said: “He could probably have anyone but I just didn’t fancy him. To be honest, I found his seduction techniques a bit awkward.”
The next day the dishy TV detective said she was “special” but gave her the “Elba” by not answering her text.
Elle also told the Daily Star Sunday how the Bastille Day star, who had been out celebrating winning an award:
● Pretended to be Bond villain Blofeld and posed with her white cat on his knee as they discussed rumours he could be the next 007.
● Admitted he was devastated after secretly splitting from his long-term girlfriend before meeting Elle.
● Nuzzled her neck and growled as he told her: “Women love it when I do this.”
Hours earlier the Mandela star had scooped a best actor prize for his movie Beasts of No Nation at the British Film Awards.
After seeing snaps of shapely Elle, who has appeared on C4 show First Dates, he demanded: “I HAVE to meet Marilyn.”
The actor asked if they could go back to Elle’s flat – where her pal was staying – in Kew, London to carry on the celebrations.
Saucy Elle, 30, pictured wearing the Christian Dior tie he left behind, said: “I was fast asleep when I woke up to my friend saying she’d brought Idris Elba round to meet me. I said ‘who’ as I’d never heard of him. I was groggy and confused and had no clothes on.
“All of a sudden my bedroom door burst open and there he was. He kept apologising for just turning up.
“He sat on my bed and started talking to me, but I had to ask him to move because he was leaning on my boob.”
After Elle had slipped on a pair of undies and a white dressing gown she fixed the revellers some drinks and joined Idris on the sofa.
She said: “He was patting the seat next to him and made it clear he wanted me to sit there. I had no idea he was a really famous TV and movie star. He must have thought I’d been living under a rock.”
Even though she didn’t recognise the A-lister, First Dates fan Idris remembered her from her appearance on the show last October.
And Idris, tipped to be the next James Bond, had some fun when he spotted her cat, Princess Sugar Plum.
“She kept saying he was going to get the part and he smiled and said ‘No, no no’. He was very humble.
“I have a cat that is white and looks like the one Bond’s nemesis Blofeld had in From Russia with Love. He picked her up and was stroking her like he did in the film, it was really funny.”
Idris, pictured at the British Film Awards in February hours before he met Elle, also revealed his heartache about his secret split from girlfriend Naiyana Garth.
She said: “I asked why they couldn’t work it out and he said that it was complicated. I felt a bit sorry for him, he seemed genuinely upset and like he needed a shoulder to cry on.”
The couple, who had been together since 2013 and have a two-year-old son, confirmed their break-up days later.
But Naiyana and Naomi were far from his mind when the lusty heartthrob asked Elle if he could join her in the bedroom.
Elle said: “Idris kept trying to pull me on to his lap and kiss me.
“He was being incredibly flirty and was making it clear he wanted something more than hugs.
“At one point he was putting on this low gravelly voice and was saying women found it sexy.
“He was doing it and nuzzling into my neck and kissing me, but it sounded more like he was growling.
“It was obviously one of his best pulling techniques and I’m sure it’s worked on lots of women, but to me it just felt a bit awkward.”
At around 4am Elle decided to call it a night – but Idris wanted to carry on the party in her room.
“He followed me into the bedroom and started to strip to his boxers. He had a great body but if I’m honest I didn’t really fancy him.”
And the actor couldn’t resist a cheeky feel of her 40J assets.
Elle added: “He had wandering hands and tried to have a feel of my boobs, but I kept slapping his hand away.
“He still had his socks on at this point and he asked if he could take them off as he liked the feel of feet touching, which was a bit strange.”
The pair went to sleep and in the morning Idris told Elle she was a “special girl” and gave her his phone number.
She said: “I dropped him a text a few days later and said ‘hey, it’s Elle’ but I never heard anything back.”
