Daniel Radcliffe has shared that he was once given money by a stranger on the street who assumed he was a homeless person.

The Harry Potter actor, who was named the 8th richest person aged 30 or under in Britain last year, told the tale in an appearance on The Graham Norton Show which aired on Friday night.

He said: "I was on the street with this dog and my girlfriend was in the shop. It was very cold, I've got my hoodie and my fleece and then a big coat over that and the dog was really cold so I was like 'I'll kneel by you and stroke you and try and keep you warm'."

“I saw this guy look at me and smile. Then he walked past me, got about five steps away, reappeared with a five dollar bill over my shoulder and went, ‘Get yourself a coffee mate.’”

“Apparently I have to shave more often,” Radcliffe, 30, added.

Radcliffe was on the programme alongside guest Sharon Horgan, Alan Cummings and Mariam Margolyes.

Margolyes, who starred as Professor Sprout in the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, has become an established favourite on the show due to her candidness.

Earlier in the week, the Call the Midwife actor appeared on This Morning where she called herself a "tw*t" live on air while recalling an experience of meeting the Queen.

“Well, I have talked about this before on television, and I feel awkward saying it again,” the 78-year-old began. “But I was invited to the palace as part of British Book Week and when the Queen came over to me, she asked me what I did... in a very nice way, you know.

“And I said, like a t**t, I’m the best reader of stories in the whole world.”

Margolyes told of how Her Majesty went on a Scottish man who said he taught dyslexic children to read.

“‘Ma’am, we’ve noticed that if you put the letters in different colours and the pages are printed in different colours, it helps the children absorb the information more quickly,’” she continued, impersonating the teacher.

“And I said, ‘Really?! That’s fascinating, I didn’t know that,’” she added. “And she turned to me and went, ‘Be quiet’. She had every right to do [it], but it was a bit discombobulating.”
