Miriam Margoyles did not hold back in a BBC interview when she met the new Chancellor Jeremy Hunt on the way into the studio. 

The Harry Potter actress, 81, spoke on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Saturday where she recounted the moment she came across Mr Hunt on his first day in office. 

Speaking on the programme, the famously outspoken actress said:“When I saw him there I just said ‘you’ve got a helluva job, the best of luck’.

However, she revealed what she really wanted to say to the new Chancellor of the Exchequer: What I really wanted to say was ‘f*** you, you b******’, but you can’t say that”.
