Titled 'Richard vs. Richard', the video begins with the Spice World actor telling the camera 'Happy Hump Day All' before switching to Luke saying 'It's a beautiful day outside'.

Both declare 'Buff Off' and continue running down the field before the two come face-to-face in dramatic fashion.

'Who are you?' Richard asks Luke – who is wearing a green sweater vest and a red shirt with large framed glasses.

'I am Richard E. Grant, who are you?' Luke responds, to which Richard insists that he's the real deal.

Luke then tests Richard's true knowledge: 'Well, you're Richard E. If Grant, fill in the blank. Hello my name is Richard Blank Grant.'

'E,' Richard harps again, prompting Luke to exclaim: 'Damn. He failed at the first hurdle.'

'Don't try to rain on my parade baby,' Richard says in reference to Barbara's iconic song from Funny Girl.

Referring to Richard's recent role as Sir James in the Hollywood film, Luke replied: 'Oh no. Saltburn.'

Turning defensive, the real Richard asks 'fake' Richard: 'If there were two Richards, would that make for double the joy, double the laughter, double the bags of joy?'
