The Rolling Stones rocker – who married Sally Humphreys in December – won an evening with the blonde beauty during a charity auction in 2011.

At a similar bidding event a UK school’s sponsor bagged a guitar lesson with Ronnie, prompting the musician to visit Malcolm Arnold Academy in Britain.

Teachers and pupils were left amazed when he turned up for a master class and admitted he and Scarlett are yet to put a date in the diary due to her busy schedule.

‘I won a date with Scarlett Johansson but it hasn’t come to fruition yet as she has been too busy filming,’ he explained during the visit, according to British newspaper the Daily Mail.

The 65-year-old talked to pupils about his career so far, before treating them to a guitar tutorial.

He even sacrificed a night at the BRIT Awards in favour of sharing his wisdom with young people.

‘I’d rather be here than at the BRITs,’ he confessed.

‘I chose to come here instead of going to the BRITs as there is too much pressure getting over to the O2.’

It seems Ronnie made the right choice, as he thoroughly enjoyed himself.

He even got a little nostalgic, wishing he could take a trip back to his school days.

‘I really enjoyed it. The questions the students asked me were very inventive and thoughtful and I spoke to them about my career,’ he smiled afterwards.

‘The school looks pretty good, I wouldn’t mind turning the clock back and coming here myself.’

Back in 2011 Ronnie bagged the date with Scarlett for a massive £26,000.
