Love Actually's Martine McCutcheon Reveals Why She Feared Killing Hugh Grant During Filming
Martine McCutcheon has revealed she feared killing Hugh Grant on her first day of filming Love Actually. The former EastEnders star played Hugh’s love interest Natalie in the 2003 festive romcom and said her first day on set proved to be pretty nerve-wracking. Her first scene was the one in which the whole cast filmed their various reunions at Heathrow Airport, with Martine tasked with jumping into the arms of Hugh’s character, prime minister David. Martine recalled filming the scene as “wonderful” but explained that jumping into Hugh’s arms hadn’t proved as easy as it looked on screen. Speaking to the PA news agency, she said: “It was one of the only times that everybody was together, if not the only time, and you realise that all these people are actually connected in some way without realising necessarily.“It was just so special to look around and see everyone around us, Oscar winners, the talent on that set that day was unbelievable.“But I was really nervous because I had to run and jump on Hugh, that was my first scene, and I was thinking ‘Oh my God, I’m going to kill him!’” Martine continued: “He was like ‘Come on, go for it’, and I was so nervous because I had never had to jump on anybody in a scene in my life and now as I do it, it’s with the heartthrob that is Hugh Grant, in front of everybody, in front of all these amazing actors, and what if I knock him out? What if I do something wrong?“And every time I ran up to do it, I stopped.”She added: “Hugh called me Teeny, and he was like ‘Come on Teeny, you can do it,’ and I was so scared I was going to hurt him or knock him over or something.“Luckily everything went great and we did good, he was fine, he can handle it. He makes it all look effortless.”Last year, Hugh also spoke of his highs and lows of making the film, revealing one scene in particular that was “absolute hell” to film. READ MORE: 31 Things You Never Knew About Love Actually, Actually Love Actually Child Star Labels Festive Romcom Cheesy And Sexist: 'I Think It's A S*** Film' A Full Breakdown Of What The 'Love Actually' Red Nose Day Special Revealed

UK Approved Vaccine First Because It's A 'Better Country' Than Others, Says Gavin Williamson
The UK was the first to approve a coronavirus vaccine for use because it is a “much better country” than France, Belgium and the United States, the education secretary has said.On Wednesday the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) gave the green light to the Pfizer/BioNTech jab, paving the way for vaccinations to start next week.Speaking to LBC on Thursday morning, Gavin Williamson was asked why no other country had yet to approve the vaccine.“Well I just reckon we’ve got the very best people in this country and we’ve obviously got the best medical regulators,” he said.“Much better than the French have, much better than the Belgians have, much better than the Americans have.“That doesn’t surprise me at all because we’re a much better country than every single one of them aren’t we.” The vaccine is a joint project between Pfizer, an American firm, and BioNTech, a German firm.Doses of the vaccine delivered to the UK will be manufactured in Belgium.Jonathan Van-Tam, England’s deputy chief medical officer, said on Thursday morning said he expected other countries to approve the vaccine soon.“I actually don’t expect other regulators, particularly the US regulator, to be very far behind with this vaccine,” he told BBC Breakfast. “This will all be solved in matter of days. Other regulators are very close behind.”Van-Tam said the UK had been able to approve the vaccine fast as the government had been “really, really organised”.“I started focusing behind the scenes on getting vaccines and vaccine preparedness back in March,” he said.The MHRA has also dismissed claims the UK was able to approve the vaccine quickly because of Brexit. “We have been able to authorise the supply of this vaccine using provisions under European law which exist until January 1,” June Raine, the regulator’s chief executive, told a Downing Street briefing.Related...
