The video, titled “Richard vs Richard”, begins with the Spice World actor telling the camera “Happy day everyone” before cutting to Luke saying “It’s a beautiful day out there.”

The pair continue running across the field, both announcing that they are “out of breath” before dramatically coming face to face.

‘Who the hell are you?’ Richard asks Luke, who is wearing a red shirt with a green vest and large rimmed glasses.

‘I’m Richard E. Grant, who the hell are you?’ Luke responds, to which Richard insists that he’s the real deal.

Luke then tests Richard’s actual knowledge by asking, ‘Well, if you’re Richard E. Grant, then fill in the blank. Hello, my name is Richard Blank Grant.’

‘E,’ Richard insists, prompting Luke to exclaim, ‘Damn. Frustrated at the first obstacle.

Then it’s the real Richard’s turn to test Luke, at which point he asks, “If you’re Richard E. Grant, whose face is on a statue in my garden?”

“I have Barbra Streisand in my garden,” Luke answers correctly. “Damn,” Richard replies.

Luke asks: ‘What movie did Barbra Streisand win her Oscar for? A. Happy girl B. Funny girl or C. Missing girl?’

“Don’t even try to rain on my parade, baby,” Richard jokes in reference to Barbra’s iconic song in Funny Girl.

Referring to Richard’s recent role as Sir James in the Hollywood film, Luke responds: ‘Ouch. BURNING SALT.’

Returning to the defensive, the real Richard asks the “fake” Richard: “If there are two Richards, doesn’t that mean double the joy, double the laughter, double the pockets full of happiness?”

The pair agree that they are better off together and sing ‘Hydrangeas’ as they return to the field, this time together, before putting on top hats and singing ‘Run Richard, run Richard, run run run’.

Fans of the couple were hysterical about the collaboration, and actress and musical theater sensation Hannah, 49, showed her support.

‘THIS HAS LITERALLY MADE MY DAY!’ she commented on Instagram. ‘BallyGood show guys! ‘BraaabloodyVO!’
