23 September 2005: The Hertfordshire Mercury published an article about Rupert's time at his former school and rumors of an autograph ban.
A bemused Nigel Grint, father of the star, told the Mercury:
"It's all a bit of a mystery — I don't know where it's come from. He left the school last summer after completing his GCSEs, and even when he was there, there were never any strict stipulations about that [signing autographs]. It's a bit bizarre."
Rupert's agent, Chris Harris, said: "It always amazes us when we get these stories, but it's the timing of this one that's really strange. We weren't contacted by The Sun. I can only assume they were rummaging around for stories and found this one in their files. It's not true anyway - he spent very little time at the school because he was filming so often. So there was never a ban."
