The posh-sound­ing English­man can be rather naughty be­hind the wheel. He has in­curred more than one speed­ing ne in re­cent times and, like oth­ers on th­ese pages, nearly had his li­cence re­voked tem­po­rar­ily.

On his way to per­form on a ra­dio show, he was caught do­ing 160km/h in his Saab and was con­se­quently given a $480 ne and had to at­tend a hear­ing. For­tu­nately, the ac­tor’s charm came in handy both at the scene and dur­ing his day in court. He re­port­edly apol­o­gised im­me­di­ately when pulled over.

“All that I can do is say I’m very sorry for be­ing such a fool to drive so fast,” he said out­side court. “I thought dis­quali cation was a strong pos­si­bil­ity ... I am very grate­ful to the bench for their de­ci­sion not to dis­qual­ify me.” It seems he and his hus­band El­liott Spencer both like to get places quickly (see op­po­site).
