""Hello Henry, Phoenix Buchanan here," started the actor.

"I'm sorry that you've been locked up for so long in your house, but you know, I've been locked up for the last five years.

"The great answer is dancing, and can I say, your dancing is quite remarkable, I congratulate you from the bottom of my heart.

published ata month ago

No doubt thrilled with his video message, Henry (or rather his father on behalf of him), replied to the character, saying: "Hi Phoenix, hope you are keeping well in prison.

"Henry agrees with you about Daddy's dancing! He may be joining you soon, currently awaiting trial for crimes against dancing!!"

We love this!

In the film, Hugh stars as Phoenix Buchanan, a narcissistic actor and former star of the West End theatre, who is reduced to making adverts for dog food.

Buchanan steals a rare pop-up book that Paddington was saving for to buy for Aunt Lucy's birthday, and frames the marmalade sandwich-eating bear for the crime.
