Everyone hoped that Theresa May would have a 'Love Actually' moment. She didn't

On Friday Donald Trump took part in a now-contentious interview with The Sun newspaper.

The biggest talking point of the interview was his open criticism of Theresa May on her handling of the Brexit negotiations.

Given that they met the next day, you can imagine that May would have been seething after reading what the president had said about her.

Ahead of their press conference people on Twitter were hoping that she would replicate a famous moment from the film Love Actually.

The scene sees Hugh Grant, who plays the prime minister, abscond the visiting US president in epic fashion. His character said:

A friend who bullies us is no longer a friend. 

Since bullies only respond to strength, from now onward, I will be prepared to be much stronger and the president should be prepared for that.

Would Theresa follow suit and hold Trump accountable in a similar way?

Of course not. She just stood there and held hands with him, but it didn't stop Twitter having a brief bit of fun.

When she failed to fulfil this prophecy everyone was disappointed.
