He explained that they were at famous LA hot spot The Viper Room when Bez disappeared and returned shortly after, telling Shaun: ‘You heard of Julia Roberts? She’s just asked me to go to her place.’
Shaun explained: ‘And he didn’t have a clue who she was, but she sent her bodyguard over, Evil. Her bodyguard’s name was something like Evil.’
Shaun revealed that Bez didn’t take her up on the offer, as ‘he had about four other girls on the go in the club anyway’.
‘So he turned down Julia Roberts?’ Holly asked, with Phil also amazed.
‘It’s Bez innit, it doesn’t really bother him,’ Shaun responded.
