You know, Natalie's younger brother who was stuck in the middle when the Prime Minister and Natalie decided to open up about their feelings at the back of a car.

Feeling old yet?

Comedian Kathy Burke shared the picture, revealing that Billy Campbell, the boy who will forever be remembered as Octopus Boy, is in fact her godson.

And Emma Freud, partner of Love Actually director Richard Curtis, was equally stunned when she saw the picture, as she then shared the image on her own Instagram account.

She shared it alongside the caption: "Octopus boy then, Octopus boy now. *faints*"

We wonder if he still has that octopus costume...
