His past leading ladies have included Natalie Imbruglia, Gillian Anderson and Rosamund Pike.

And now Rowan Atkinson can add French beauty Olga Kurylenko, 37, to his list of on-screen flames, as he reprises the role of Johnny English for the upcoming third instalment in the spoof crime franchise.

Spotted on set in Saint-Aygulf in Frejus, France on Tuesday, the 62-year-old comedian was seen on an overcast and windswept beach with the brunette, performing in what looked to be a romantic encounter.

Wearing a white shirt with the sleeves rolled up and bright turquoise shirts, the funnyman stood on the shore as Olga strutted up to him across the surf.

The svelte stunner wore a mustard swimsuit, plunging in a large V at the front, with a cream sarong wrapped around her waist.

With her arms outstretched warmly as she sauntered up to Rowan, the pretty actress wore her buoyant chestnut locks in a bouncy wavy 'do.

Before long, she had dropped the sarong and was running into the arms of the accident-prone spy.

Wrapping up: After the scene, the actress was seen slipping into a stone-grey robe, shielding her frame from the blustery climes

Rowan - who went through a costly £5million divorce from his wife of 24 years, Sunetra, in 2015 - appeared thrilled as his character readied himself for the sultry brunette's embrace.

After the scene, the actress was seen slipping into a stone-grey robe, shielding her frame from the blustery climes.

Olga is a French actress and model of Ukrainian origin, discovered as a model in Moscow at the age of 13.

She moved to the French capital at the age of 16 to kick-start her modelling career, before giving acting a go in 2005 - finding success in the role of Nika Boronina in the movie adaptation of the video game Hitman (2007).

Back! Rowan Atkinson was spotted shooting scenes for Johnny English III last month in London

She then played a real-life Bond girl - Camille Montes - in the 22nd James Bond film, Quantum of Solace (2008).

She starred in Momentum (2015), To the Wonder (2012), and Oblivion (2013) alongside Tom Cruise.

She acted opposite Russell Crowe in The Water Diviner (2014).

Last month the Mr Bean actor was spotted on the streets of London shooting the first scenes for the cult favourite film.

He was spotted wearing a crisp white shirt with a red tie and black trousers as he stood before cameras as the buffoon spy.

Chit chat: Rowan caught up with the crew between takes 

With a sizeable crew surrounding him, the funnyman cut a pensive figure between takes, standing alone with his head down as he waited for his next scene.

And with the scenes being shot on the bustling streets of the English capital, it seemed fitting that an open-top red double decker bus was also incorporated into the scenes, with the cast and crew huddled on the top deck.

Little is known about where the third instalment of Johnny English will lead his character; the first, released in 2003, saw Johnny become the country's sole spy after an attack on the MI5, while the sequel took him on a mission to China.

Taking direction: Rowan listened to the director of the film as he stood solo among the production's cast and crew

The original, which also starred John Malkovich and Ben Miller alongside Atkinson grossed almost £22million domestically, 2011's Johnny English Reborn only pulled in a comparatively meagre £6.2million. 

Rowman and Sunetra's divorce was granted on the grounds of 'unreasonable behaviour'.

Rowan is currently dating comedy actress Louise Ford - a comedy actress half his age. She has appeared in Channel 4's Misfits and starred alongside Inbetweeners actors Simon Bird and Joe Thomas in Sky’s Chickens.

Rowan and Sunetra were building an £11million home in Oxfordshire at the time of their split in 2014.

Following the split, Blackadder star moved into a £4million London cottage while Sunetra resided in a £21million mansion in the capital, bought for her by Rowan in 2014.

One of Britain’s most wealthy entertainers with a fortune of around £70million, Atkinson sold his rare McLaren F1 supercar for £8million months before his divorce was granted in 2015.

Rowan first met his wife, the daughter of an Indian engineer from Ealing, west London, in the late Eighties, when she was working as a make-up artist for the BBC.

He was previously in a relationship with Men Behaving Badly star Leslie Ash, who he planted an avenue of rowan and ash trees for at his country home.

Louise and Rowan met in 2013 after appearing together in the West End as he starred in the comic play Quartermaine's Terms. 

The comedienne grew up in Bexleyheath, south-east London, before gaining an English degree at Southampton University.

After graduating, she won a place at RADA where she was in the same year and treaded the boards with now Hollywood actress Gemma Arterton.

This led to appearances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with the Royal Shakespeare Company and parts in television comedies.
