Hugh Grant will attend ex-lover Liz Hurley's wedding after splitting from Jemima Khan. The 46-year-old actor is to play an integral part in his former girlfriend's big day as he no longer has to worry about his ex getting jealous. Hugh - who ended his three-year relationship with Jemima last week - has even been invited to groom Arun Nayar's bachelor party and will make a speech at the Gloucestershire wedding reception on March 3. A source told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper: "Hugh will be like a co-host alongside the best man on the day. He will be making a speech. It will be comedic, but there will be no little asides or innuendoes about the relationship they had all those years. Hugh and Elizabeth will be going through what is allowed to be said and what is not. Elizabeth doesn't want to make her new husband feel awkward or embarrassed on their big day."

Earlier this year, Hugh announced he would not be going to the wedding amid rumours that Jemima, 32, was unhappy with his continuing friendship with Liz - who he dated for 13 years. Things reportedly came to head when the socialite discovered Hugh had splashed out on an engraved Chopard necklace for the 41-year-old bride. An insider said: "When Jemima discovered Hugh had paid out so much on a Chopard necklace for Elizabeth and had it engraved with a personal message, she felt enough was enough."
