    Matt Lucas Trying To Make A New Friend Is The Sweetest Thing You'll See Today

    The Little Britain star dines out, checks his phone, and something lovely happens.

    Matt was having lunch when he noticed some curious behaviour on the table next to him.

    I am dining alone at Wagamama and the teenage girls next to me are framing me into their selfies and they think I don't know. #ButIKnow

    They're giggling. I might have been rumbled back.

    Matt's approach didn't seem to be going too well...

    They're laughing and reading my tweets but still haven't said hello. The young generation, eh?

    I want them to be my friends but they have to say hi first because grown ups can't approach teenage girls anymore.

    @izzywarner12 no izzy, you'll have to say hello in the flesh. I was born in 1974 and this is how my people do it.

    They even started punning to diffuse the tension.

    @RealMattLucas @izzywarner12 This could be beautiful if one of you says hello. Share a gyoza!
