Raucous Lily James enjoys VERY boozy picnic with showbiz pals

Raucous Lily James enjoyed a very boozy picnic with a host of her celebrity friends on Saturday but was she feeling a little congested as she put her hands to her nose? 

The 31-year-old appeared to be in a jovial mood as she was joined by Billie Piper, 37, as well as Mamma Mia! co-star Dominic Cooper, 42, and his girlfriend Gemma Chan, 37.

Lily, who recently reconciled with boyfriend Matt Smith following a brief split at the end of last year, was very giggly as she caught up with her pals in Primrose Hill.

While she drank from a bottle in the sunshine, Billie smoked a cigarette as they chatted and giggled together throughout the day. 

Lily was dressed in a vest top and a spotty skirt for the occasion, while mother-of-three Billie wore a pretty floral mini dress. 

And no doubt Lily was thrilled to catch up with Dominic Cooper, her love interest in Mamma Mia!

Lily famously played a young Donna Sheridan in the 2018 film, while Dominic took on the character of Sky Rymand.

Dominic and Gemma have been dating since September 2018. 

The foursome all piled into Dominic’s classic convertible car at the end of the day.

Billie appeared to sit on Gemma’s lap in the front seat, even though there was space in the back. 

On Thursday, Lily was in the same park dressed in a black bikini top and red dress as she made the most of the London heatwave.
