It's hard to pick a favourite scene in the much-loved 2003 rom-com Love Actually ... after all the movie did show us that love (and Christmas) is actually all around.

But what about your least favourite scene?

For script editor (and director Richard Curtis' wife) Emma Freud, there is one clip she REALLY wishes didn't make the final cut.

In fact, Freud disliked this particular scene so much she actually fought to get it cut.

But obviously, lost.

She revealed: "The scene where Colin is seen through the win­dow of the Amer­i­can girls’ apart­ment was one I bat­tled and lost."

"And it still makes me wince."
