The Mission Impossible star claimed his friend has ‘never forgiven me’, as Nick went on: ‘I came back hours later and he was sat having a Chinese.’
Simon added: ‘I thought he was pulling the longest game – I opened the door and he was there all soaking wet and was like “You left me!”‘
Despite the incident, Simon and Nick have proven its all water under the bridge as they’ve continued to work together on many projects over the years.
The duo first began working together on Channel 4 sitcom Spaced, before they starred in Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy: Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, and World’s End, and they now star together in Truth Seekers.
