Ireland's new Taoiseach Leo Varadkar might divide people on a number of issues but there's no denying that he's down with the kids. 

This is proven by his regular visits to Electric Picnic, his liking for Britpop legends Blur and the fact he's been known to take pilates classes, as revealed by Gerry Adams last week. 

It now appears that we can add 'romcom buff' to Leo's list of talents.

Our new leader paid his first visit to Downing Street today for talks with British PM Theresa May, like most of if we were thrown into that situation, he was reminded of an iconic scene from 2003 flick Love Actually

Take a look:

He is, of course, referring to Hugh Grant in his role as Prime Minister getting jiggy to Jump (For My Love)  by the Pointer Sisters. 

If Leo's trying to display how fecking cool us Irish are on his foreign visits then he's off to a great start.
