He has enjoyed fame for three decades, starring in Knight Rider and Baywatch and allegedly playing a role in the fall of the Berlin Wall with his hit song Looking for Freedom.
But David Hasselhoff has revealed that the happiest day of his life came recently when he “went under cover in a Rasta hat in Cardiff” with his girlfriend – and no one spotted him.
“It was the best day of my life,” he told RadioTimes.com. “We walked around the town and I had this thing on my head and no-one came up to me asking for my autograph. I like seeing my fans but it was nice to be anonymous.”
“The Hoff” will be accorded no anonymity in his new show, however, which airs on Dave next year.
The six-part Hoff the Record is a semi-improvised spoof account of his life in the glare of celebrity as he moves to the UK to try to get his career back on track.
The series, made by An Idiot Abroad producer Me & You Productions, will air next year.
