24/7: INSTANT FLAME.

Byline: POLLY GRAHAM

ANNA Friel doesn't dilly-dally with that old three-date rule.

The 25-year-old star admits she jumped straight into bed with actor boyfriend David Thewlis, 38, the first night she met him at a friend's dinner party.

The former Brookside babe says: "When I saw him, he was kind of rocking on his seat and I thought, 'Oh he needs a cuddle'.

"He came round that night and never left. In fact, that first evening, the house caught on fire. Actually it wasn't on fire. I left lots of candles burning on the mantelpiece and they set alight a big wooden mirror.

"We both ran naked towards the flames and started blowing them out. It was a memorable first date."

The next night David, star of the movies Naked and Divorcing Jack, even met Anna's dad. "They got on great." she adds.
