  Potter fever gets Scouts searching
Updated 30 December 2002, 18.09
Scouts at the World Scout Jamboree
Rumours that Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe was in Thailand had thousands of excited scouts searching for the actor.

Around 18,000 scouts are in the country for the World Scout Jamboree, a huge 11-day event for scouts from all over the world.

And some of them got really excited when they tracked Daniel down and grabbed and autograph and a picture with him - or did they?

It seems someone at the event may have been slurping some polyjuice potion, because it was actually a lookalike and not the real Daniel.

Even so the two Thai scouts, 15-year-old Rungnapa Kedkaew and Arak Jringjit, insisted they had met the real thing, and even made the front page of the Bangkok Post newspaper.

The confusion may have been because one of the scouts who was in the film is at the event, although he isn't Daniel, revealed camp spokesman Richard Amalvy.

He said: "There is a boy who is in the movie here but he's not the main actor. This boy is here with his friends for the holidays so we don't want to have the paparazzi here. It's a private holiday for him."
