Vogue Williams mortified at husband Spencer’s awkward encounter with Cillian Murphy

“He’s made a show of us”

Vogue Williams said she was mortified after her husband Spencer Matthews had a very awkward encounter with Peaky Blinders star, Cillian Murphy.

Made In Chelsea’s Spencer saw Cillian at the BAFTA’s recently and was clearly very taken back.

He is a big fan of the Irish actor and wanted to approach him but Vogue didn’t think it was a good idea.

Cillian Murphy is known for being a private person and doesn’t usually like the limelight that comes with being a famous actor.

He’s often seen on economy flights staying to himself and reading.

He even celebrated his 47th birthday yesterday.

Vogue and Spencer spoke about the awkward run in on their podcast recently.

The Howth native said: “Spenny made an absolute show of us.

“We saw Cillian Murphy and he doesn’t look like he wants to say hello to anyone. Fair enough, he moved back to Cork for the peace and quiet and Spenny wouldn’t leave it.”

Then Spencer joined in and said: “I love Cillian Murphy and it’s not often that you bump into him.

“I thought to myself ‘I’m not going to meet this guy again I think’.”

Vogue hit back at her hubby and said: “He just looked like he was chatting to his friends and didn’t want to chat to anyone else.”

Spencer explained: “I felt pressure from Vogue to do what I did because I said, ‘You’re Irish, he’s Irish. Let’s just go say hi to Cillian, like it’ll be fine. He’ll be happy to see us’.

“Vogue was like ‘Not in a million years am I saying to Cillian Murphy’.”
