Emma and Kenneth’s relationship hit the rocks in 1995 and they were hit by rumours he was involved with another actress who went on to star in the Harry Potter movies – Helena Bonham Carter.

Helena was pictured kissing Kenneth in 1996 – a year after his split from Emma – and they went public with their romance in 1997 before splitting in 1999.

She was later cast as villain Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter franchise.

Although the breakdown of her marriage was deeply upsetting for Emma, she managed to channel her heartache into another role in hit rom-com Love Actually character on her real life experience.

She told Glamour Magazine: “That scene where my character is standing by the bed crying is so well known because it’s something everyone’s been through,” the actor said.

“I had my heart very badly broken by Ken. So I knew what it was like to find the necklace that wasn’t meant for me.

“Well it wasn’t exactly that, but we’ve all been through it.”

Although Emma, Helena and Kenneth never appeared in scenes together, it’s impressive that the trio were able to put their past behind them to make the films a roaring success.

Emma has reportedly forgiven Helena – she told the Sunday Times she has “made her peace” with Helena and described her as a “wonderful woman”.

“You can’t hold on to anything like that,” Emma said.

“It’s pointless. I haven’t got the energy for it.”

Emma went on to find happiness with actor Greg Wise and they have been married for more than 25 years.

Greg is currently starring in Strictly Come Dancing paired with pro dancer Karen Hauer.
