Bemused resident Colin Newitt managed to engage the billionaire star – who grew up in Liverpool suburb Allerton – in an unexpected conversation after his wife immediately recognised him.
He told the Liverpool Echo: ‘So we had been to Parkgate for a meal with our son Mason when I heard my wife shouting “look there’s Paul.”
‘He had just got out of a car and we had stopped at the lights. I wound the window down and shouted “Paul.”
