She was the envy of women around the world when she played Hugh Grant's on-screen girlfriend in Love Actually, and now Martine McCutcheon has finally revealed what it was really like to kiss "posh boy" Hugh Grant.
The actress, who is married to Jack McManus, admitted on Loose Women: "I won't be mysterious, he was fabulous.
"I'm not going to lie. At first he was polite and I thought posh boys aren't very good kissers... but then when [director] Richard Curtis said to him go for it – oh did he!"

"I won't be mysterious, he was fabulous," said Martine McCutcheon
Martine, 40, also revealed that she felt completely at ease working alongside her handsome co-star Hugh, and Hollywood favourites including Emma Thompson, Colin Firth, Bill Nighy and Keira Knightley.
"[Hugh] was genuinely such a lovely man," said the actress. "Grumpy in the morning until he had his cup of tea, and then once he had his cup of tea he is absolutely fabulous. And he made me feel so comfortable because the whole time with Love Actually I couldn't believe I was there with these massive stars and he made me feel like I belonged."

Looking at a recent picture of Hugh topless on the beach, Martine added: "I love my Hugh. He could be 10 stone bigger than that and I still wouldn't kick him out of bed. I think he looks absolutely amazing."
Martine found international fame in 2003 after playing Natalie in Love Actually, but it was her previous role as Tiffany Mitchell in EastEnders that made her a household name in her home country.
Martine welcomed her first child last year with her husband Jack McManus
Last year Martine became a mum for the first time when she welcomed a son, Rafferty, with her husband Jack. Speaking exclusively to HELLO! magazine, the singer said: "I used to think, when I heard people say having a child was their most life-changing moment, that they were just saying that because it was the expected thing to say.
"Now I so get it. I have never been so in love, so content and so full of happiness in my life. My mum always said to me that it is a love like no other, and it's absolutely true. This baby boy is the love of our lives."
