James Norton is a window cleaner in new film Nowhere Special


TALK OF THE TOWN: 007? James Norton is just happy to be a soap star… as he plays a window cleaner in new film Nowhere Special


I know he’s led a privileged life but does Cambridge-educated actor James Norton really not know what to do with a bucket of suds?

Norton, 36, who many have tipped as the next James Bond, plays a tattooed window cleaner from Northern Ireland called John in new film Nowhere Special – and says director Uberto Pasolini put him in touch with a squeegee expert to help him master the techniques.

I can’t testify to the McMafia star’s cleaning skills but James – who attended top public school Ampleforth College – certainly got to grips with his character’s Northern Irish accent.

The star says: ‘The best compliment was on the first Friday night, when we went out for drinks with the crew.

‘I spent most of the time on set in the accent, and then I turned up at the bar and I didn’t look like John – I had my floppy hair and sounded like I do. 

‘It took them an hour… a lot of the crew were like, ‘Who the hell are you?’ ‘

After a tough few months, I was delighted to see pictures of Lady Lola Bute seemingly making things ‘Instagram Official’ with a new mystery man.

Lady Lola, 22, has been mourning the loss of her father Johnny Dumfries, the 7th Marquess of Bute, who passed away aged 62 in March.

But last week Lola shared a series of snaps as a birthday tribute to her new beau, writing: ‘You’re so special and I’m so lucky. 

‘You make everything better. I love you.’

Supermodel Adwoa Aboah was among Lola’s celebrity pals who liked the sweet photos by adding some heart emojis.

Who’s a-Freud of ghosts?

Ghostly goings-on to report at Burford Priory, the ancient Oxfordshire mansion where PR supremo Matthew Freud’s family live.

Charlotte and Samson Freud, Matthew’s children with his ex-wife, media guru Elisabeth Murdoch, have revealed their home is haunted – reporting ‘knocking and banging’ noises being heard in the dead of night.

In messages shared by Charlotte, 20, the siblings also talk of ghostly presences ‘walking around’ the Grade I-listed house and how Charlotte found her pet dog ‘growling at an empty corner of the room’.

The priory was built on the site of a 13th Century Augustinian hospital and was bought by Elisabeth and Matthew for £6.5 million in 2008.

Sounds terrifying – but I’m sure the Freud-Murdochs have experienced scarier things in their busy lives in the cut-throat media world than a few measly ghosts…
