Like many other Kiwis around the country, Jacinda Ardern celebrated the amazing fact that New Zealand currently has no cases of COVID-19.

She revealed on Monday that she "did a little dance" when she first heard the good news.

"I did a little dance. I showed Neve. She was caught a little by surprise but she joined in - having absolutely no idea why I was dancing around the lounge but enjoying it nonetheless," the Prime Minister said during the press conference.

And now, it seems that dance video has "leaked" online.

If you don't recognise the scene, it is, of course, Hugh Grant's iconic dance scene from the much-loved film, Love Actually.

YouTube user GCSBro unveiled their creation, which sees Jacinda's head superimposed onto Hugh's - who portrayed the British Prime Minister in the film - body dancing to The Pointer Sister's song 'Jump.'


The video even features Dr Ashley Bloomfield watching the PM bust a move before she gets caught.

Too funny!
