Dominic West's daughter is in the same show where sparks flew with Lily James 

Working alongside your parents always has the potential to be a little awkward.

But spare a thought for Martha West whose latest job saw her filming on the set of The Pursuit Of Love, where her father is thought to have grown close to Lily James.

Married actor Dominic West, 51, and his 32-year-old co-star were famously pictured looking cosy on a visit to Rome after filming wrapped on the drama last year. The pair enjoyed an amorous al fresco lunch and rode around the city on a scooter together.

Miss West, 23, made her appearance in last night’s instalment of the BBC series playing her father’s fictional daughter and Miss James’s sister. It is her first acting role since 2009. She makes a brief appearance on the show, with her character Jassy running away from home and moving to Beverly Hills to marry a man she has just met.

Miss West’s mother is aristocrat Polly Astor, with whom West was in a relationship before rekindling his romance with and later marrying Catherine Fitzgerald in 2010.

West has four other children with Miss Fitzgerald - Dora, 15, Senan, 13, Francis, 12, and Christabel, seven.

The Pursuit of Love follows Miss James’ character Linda Radlett in search of the ideal husband. West plays her father in the programme.

The three-part series is based on the 1954 novel of the same name by Nancy Mitford and has been written and directed by Emily Mortimer.

It is set in Europe between the two World Wars and follows the adventures and misadventures of Linda and Fanny as they hunt for the ideal husband.

The Pursuit of Love concludes on BBC1 on Sunday at 9pm. All three episodes are available to watch now on BBC iPlayer.
