Hugh Grant has admitted he misses the days of analogue television and has not yet worked out how to use Netflix.

The Four Weddings And A Funeral star said he is still old fashioned in his tastes.

He told Pilot TV magazine: “I can’t work it. There was something I needed to see on Netflix last night and I’m in a new house and I couldn’t get it to work.

“I asked the nanny to try and even she couldn’t sort it out.”

He added: “I miss the days of the four analogue channels.”

The actor will next be seen in A Very English Scandal on BBC One in May, playing British MP and leader of the Liberal party Jeremy Thorpe, who was tried for conspiring to murder his ex-lover Norman Scott, played by his Paddington 2 co-star Ben Whishaw.

Speaking about kissing Whishaw for the show, he said: “We just went at it. I got – what do they call it – ‘pash rash’ from his beard.”

“He’s remarkably un-luvvie for a top actor. I loved him.”
