Russell Grant With Bennett
John Bennett On Meeting Russell Grant
If Russell Grant had wanted to be inaccessible he couldn’t have chosen a better spot. A flight to Manchester, a three hour drive to the slopes of Snowdonia in North Wales and then to find a huge electronic gate barring my way to his magnificent Victorian Gothic villa set in 40 acres of pine forest and grassland.
The astrologer extraordinaire explained that even though the setting was remote, some fans managed to find his home and quite a few turned up on the doorstep unannounced. Hence the gates!
Not that he minds chatting with people; he loves to talk and his enthusiasm and exhuberance are not switched on for the cameras – his bubbly, roly-poly approach to life is for real.
