Our very own Jon Snow is famous for pulling savage pranks on his wife Rose Leslie. This year he tried the same and got backfired for it. Kit appeared on the show Late Night With Seth Myers and gave us interesting details about his April Fool’s Day prank on his wife.
He said “Leslie won’t drink any other Almond milk, so I wrote an article about how this company who makes her favourite almond milk was going under because of Brexit.
