And Ru­bin­stein be­lieves they will still be able to pull it off as they be­come bet­ter known: ‘I’ve spo­ken to Adam Boul­ton [the po­lit­i­cal ed­i­tor of Sky News] while I’m in char­ac­ter in both se­ries and he hasn’t recog­nised me,’ he boasts. ‘There’s plenty of peo­ple out there still to get.’ If money was no ob­ject, he says he would put a burka on the Statue of Lib­erty, and a niqab on Big Ben for good mea­sure. Prowse says he’d like to sun­bathe on Richard Bran­son’s Necker Is­land, tak­ing ad­van­tage of a lo­cal law that all beaches are pub­licly owned.
