James Nesbitt is a huge hit with "grannies".
The 'Murphy's Law' star admits he gets quite a bit of attention from fans and while many TV heartthrobs attract young women, James' avid followers are slightly older and tend to have a penchant for bizarre requests.
BANG Showbiz got the exclusive scoop from his Haagen-Dazs interview, in which he said: "Talking of grannies, one once asked me, 'Can I touch you for good luck?' I get more fan letters from grannies than from their daughters!"
As well as grannies, James also spoke about his ideal date, which would involve some time travelling with legendary actress Sophia Loren.
He said: "I would love to travel back in time to the Spanish Steps in Rome for dinner with Sophia Loren at the foot of the Cathedral."
Speaking about how he would impress any current dates, the former 'Cold Feet' star said: "I'd turn up on time, agree with everything she said, and occasionally I'd serenade her!"
And lucky ladies over Britain will soon be able to see what James is like on a date as he has teamed up with fellow actors Rupert Penry-Jones and Benedict Cumberbatch as part of the Haagen-Dazs a-LIST campaign.
The premium ice cream brand is offering three winners and their friends the chance to step out with one of the men through a unique and exclusive competition, which is available through Haagen-Dazs' nationwide on-pack promotion.
