Spice World, Scents and a Special Task – Meets Richard E Grant

We have fallen in love. This is not a drill.

If you were staying in last Friday night and turned your attention to the Late Late Show, you may have spotted the utterly charming Richard E Grant joining Gabriel Byrne on the couch and chatting with Ryan Tubridy.

The British star was in town for the launch of his new fragrance Jack Covet Garden.

Earlier that same day, we headed to Brown Thomas to meet the Whitnail and I actor, spending a very pleasurable stint talking about scents and sensibilities. We made sure to acknowledge his stellar work in modern classic Spice World, (tongue firmly in cheek) and then chanced our arm and set him a little challenge.

He gleefully accepted… and a new game was born. This might explain his rather odd question for Tubs.
