“Maybe some truffles, perhaps some steak. Pepper soup and fufu. That’s an African dish and you pound the yams. And you know what? I’ll let you pound my yams.

“And for dessert, you can have whatever you want, and I mean whatever you want.”

Flights and accommodation at a four-star hotel are included, according to the actor’s page on the Omaze website.

Interested parties have until 14 February to make a bid.
