Speaking about the final scene when Natalie is reunited with David in the airport, Martine said: ‘The first day was at Heathrow, the first day filming when I had to go and jump on him.

‘And it was like Dirty Dancing – you know when she runs and then she stops, and then she runs and then she stops?

‘And the whole crew were there, and I had to do that, and I’m like, “I’m going to kill him! I’m going to knock him over and I’m going to kill him!” I couldn’t do it.’

Despite the pressure of the whole crew and some very famous cast members watching her, Martine said that Hugh quickly put her at ease. 

She said: ‘Emma Thompson was there… and everyone was watching and I kept getting so embarrassed.

‘He [Hugh] said, ‘Oh don’t be stupid, you’re not going to kill me’.

‘And in the end we managed it. But what a thing, you’ve got to jump up at Hugh Grant and straddle him, first day!’ 

Martine played a No. 10 tea lady, Natalie, that caught the eye of the Prime Minister, David, portrayed by Hugh in the iconic Christmas-themed movie.

Hugh, who’s used to warming hearts in films like Love Actually, Notting Hill and Bridget Jones’s Diary, could be set to make an appearance in Sex And The City for the upcoming reboot as Sarah Jessica Parker wants a ‘big’ male star to join the cast.

The Brit is reportedly ‘at the top of the list’ to star in the show to help smooth over the absence of Samantha Jones, played by Kim Catrall, and with questions remaining over Mr Big’s return, played by Chris Noth.

The father-of-five is reportedly being ‘wooed’ by his friend and former co-star Sarah Jessica, 56, as she tries to convince him to join the revived series as the pair have worked well together in the past.

According to The Mirror, an insider said: ‘Sarah Jessica has it in her head that she needs a big – and I mean big – male star in the SATC reunion ensemble. 

‘To help smooth over the absence of Kim [Cattrall] and the potentially diminished role with Chris Noth, whose deal to return is not yet done and whose exact role is still being figured out. 

‘At the top of SJP and HBO Max’s wishlist to join the series is Hugh Grant, who loves the show and had a great time working with Sarah Jessica in the past, and with HBO just last year on his massive hit The Undoing.’
