Christmas special was filmed last week.
After driving ot the pub in a dark-coloured Mercedes, they showed
pictures of Michael, 30, to drinkers and asked them where he was.
They were then overhead by one regular threatening to harm the actor.
A 23-year-old man, who asked not to be named, told the Sunday Mirror:
“They said that they would break his legs.”

allegations surrounding a well-known actor and have made investigations
including speaking to him.”

Day last year.
