Martine McCutcheon tells heat about her friendship with Hugh Grant

Ahead of the Love Actually sequel this Red Nose Day

We kind of like to imagine that, much like the Harry Potter cast, the Love Actually actors are all in a WhatsApp group together and exchange daily bants like the bezzie mates they are.

Unfortunately, they're all proper grown up adults with their own lives and a lot of them probably don't even have WhatsApp. But WE CAN DREAM.

But two of the actors who do seem to be living out our fantasy that they're still v close in real life are Martine McCutcheon and Hugh Grant (Natalie and the Prime Minister in the film).

It recently emerged that they're MARRIED in the sequel, so we caught up with Martine to hear all about her friendship with Hugh.

When we asked if they ever met up post-Love Actually, she said: "Not one-on-one, but he’d go 'Are you going to this event?' and I’d say 'Yeah' and we’d see each other. The British Film Institute gave him a tribute last year, and I went along as a surprise. We text each other, but having children, time whizzes by!

And when we asked if she's consider doing a feature-length sequel, she replied: "If Hugh was. Hugh championed me from the beginning. Without Hugh it would be like salt without pepper!"

She added: "Me and Hugh and I are chalk and cheese, that’s what makes us work. He’s nervous about dance scenes, whereas I go, ‘Yeah!’ and throw myself into it. We bring out the best in each other."

These two <3
