Host: Well first of all Rupert welcome to Heart.

Rupert: How are you doing?

Host: I’m, I’m good. The first question has to be, everyone wants to know if you’re okay cuz you’ve had Swine Flu?

Rupert: Yeah, no I did have Swine Flu but it was no different than any other Flu I’ve had. It was quite easy to get rid of.

Host: It’s not as bad as man Flu though, man Flu is the worst.

Rupert: Oh yeah yeah. (Laughs)

Host: Eight year old Ben, one of your fans, wants to know if you got Swine Flu from going to Hogwarts?

Rupert: Uh ha ha.

Host: Do you like that?

Rupert: Very clever yeah I like that. (Laughs) Well no!

Host: Okay here’s another one. Your first car was an Ice Cream Van, by the way is it fully functioning?

Rupert: Yeah, I’ve had a bit of work done to it, just getting it repainted, but yeah should be back on the road soon. It’s got a Mr. Whippy machine, a freezer.

Host: You ever start selling Icee’s?

Rupert: Well you can’t. It’s not as easy as that really. You need special licenses to sell Ice Cream. It’s a bit complicated but…I do get people queuing up whenever I go out.

Host: Okay Emma wants to know if its true your first acting role, was it as fish in a school play, and did you have any lines?

Rupert: Yeah it was a fish, and uh no it wasn’t a talking part. I think I was fish 6. There was about 10 fish. Yeah it was a bit of a responsibility being the 6th fish.

Host: Scarlet wants to know if you have a nickname that your friends call you?

Rupert: Yeah. I mean there is a lot. Rupe, Poop is one that comes up occasionally. The usual ginger kind of comments..

Host: I’d expect there would quite a few ginger ones there…Simon wants to know if Emma is a good kisser.

Rupert: Yeah, she is.. I mean the kiss was quite weird.. But ohm yeah no she is a lovely girl. It was good.

Host: Anna says she hears you are scared of spiders. Is that true and exactly how scared of them are you?

Rupert: Yeah that is true and I’m very scared yeah.

Host: Standing on chairs scared?

Rupert: I never really see that is a good strategy really, I just run.

Host: Steven wants to know if your parents still make you clean your room even though your famous?

Rupert: Oh yeah definitely. No No yeah, I haven’t done it in awhile but they do still tell me to do it yeah.

Host: Emily wants to know if you performed a hip hop number on your Harry Potter audition tape?

Rupert: Yeah.. Part of the plan of my auditioning was I sent in a video tape, it was just me. I just did a rap basically just about me to a beat. Just something to get their attention really.

Host: So we’re not going to see you MCing anytime. It wasn’t that level of…

Rupert: Probably not

Host: Loves your hair and your eyes and wants to know what it is like to be a sex symbol?

Rupert: (Laughs) I don’t really see myself as that… That’s quite weird. Yeah Yeah getting recognized is quite a strange thing. I’m still kinda getting use to it.

Host: You will be turning 21 next month and Allan wants to know what you will be doing because he is 5 next month and wants to know if you’d like to go to his party. It’s Harry Potter themed.

Rupert: Cool.

Host: …And he’s having carrot cake in your honor.
