With Adele’s James Bond theme ‘Skyfall’ taking the charts by storm, Richard Branson last week posed a teaser in his blog: “I've always been a fan of James Bond. In fact, if you look closely you can spot yours truly making a cameo appearance in Daniel Craig's first Bond film, Casino Royale. Can anyone remember which scene it is in?”
Not wishing to keep you in suspense for too long, we can today reveal the scene where the Virgin Group Founder pops up in Casino Royale, as we look back at his top three cameo appearances.
As well as those listed below, Richard has also had roles in Baywatch, Around The World in 80 Days and Superman Returns.
So which is your favourite? Have a watch and let us know…
1.Only Fools and Horses
Richard made his first cameo appearance in 1991, as he surprised Del Boy and Rodney in the Heathrow departure lounge as they prepared to board a Virgin Atlantic flight in the Only Fools and Horses Christmas special.
2. Casino Royale
A blink and you'll miss it appearance in Daniel Craig's first outing as James Bond was Richard's latest cameo, as a frequent flyer he played the role to great aplomb.
In perhaps his most famous cameo role, the Virgin Group Founder offers Joey and Chandler some advice on London life as he sells the former a souvenir hat outside Westminster Abbey. Watch here.
