Andrew Scott’s “hot priest” character on the second season of “Fleabag” has evidently got a lot of fans all hot and bothered.
The 42-year-old actor was on the couch for Friday’s “The Graham Norton Show” when fellow guest Paloma Faith brought up his sex scene in the fifth episode of the hit comedy’s new season.
Admitting she’s “not shy of an awkward situation,” the 37-year-old singer revealed she “confessed to Andrew when [she] first met him that [she] had a bit of alone time with episode five.”
Faith added, “‘I had my moment and was very happy!’
With Scott laughing at her revelation, Faith joked, “On behalf of anybody that’s got kids, has been in a long-term relationship, thank you from the deepest bottom of my heart!”
All the new attention has led to some surprising fan encounters, Scott also revealed.
“Weirdly, it’s actually the husbands and boyfriends that come up to me,” he explained. “I was in the park going over my lines and this little man was just standing staring at me. Eventually he said, ‘My wife really fancies you, can I have a selfie?’ He had a mop in one hand and when we had taken the photo he just carried on staring while making the mop jiggle around. I wondered if the mop was his ‘wife’? It was really weird.”
