Hugh Grant has joined forces with ex lover Liz Hurley and her new husband Arun Nayar to sue celebrity photographic agency Big Pictures (UK).
The trio, who recently holidayed together in the Seychelles, are believed to be suing over a series of snaps which showed Liz rubbing sun cream on to Hugh's face.
The pictures also demonstrated the closeness between the newly weds and their friend Hugh as they enjoyed the winter sunshine in October.
Grant, 47, Arun, 42, and Liz, are also suing photographic agency Eliot Press Sarl. A copy of the writ is not yet available from the court - but it is possible the pair are claiming breach of privacy.
In a high profile settlement in 2003, DJ Sara Cox and her husband claimed £50,000 in damages from The People after suing for breach of privacy over pictures showing her sunbathing topless on her honeymoon.
