Hugh's that dining with our Virginia?

RISQUE RTE star Virginia Macari seems to have the knack of being in the right place at the right time.

The Podge and Rodge presenter managed to miss all the bad weather after taking time out from filming to head to Marbella with her boyfriend Kas for a holiday in the Spanish sun.

And though she's no stranger to meeting stars on the RTE show, she revealed how she was blown away to meet movie star Hugh Grant while dining out with her other half one night at the exclusive Los Banditos restaurant in Puerto Banus.

"It was surreal. I was sitting down looking to my right at his photo hanging up on the wall and then I look to my left and there he was, sitting right beside me," she explained. Never one to miss an opportunity, the half Italian beauty wasted no time in introducing herself to the floppy-haired Four Weddings And A Funeral actor, who she described as being "gorgeous" in the flesh.

And she said, he couldn't have been nicer -- and even passed on his contact details to her.

"My boyfriend Kas got talking to him as he's a big fan as well and told him I was an actress," she said.

Given that she has a new project coming up in the form of Doll, which sees her making her movie debut playing the part of a former beauty queen looking back on her life, she even chanced inviting Grant over for the Irish premiere.
