Yes that's right - Julie played Ron Weasley's formidable mum, while Robbie played loveable giant Hagrid.

And Hagrid and Molly - that is Julie and Robbie - were a big hit. As Robbie's character, a beloved TV figure Paul Finchley, reacted with horror to allegations of a rape and proclaimed his innocence: "They think I'm Jimmy f***ing Savile." His wife was shocked to see the house ransacked.

Four-part drama National Treasure airs on Tuesdays at 9pm on Channel 4.
