Lily James proved she was a woman of many talents as she showed off her ping pong skills with her co-star Shazad Latiff during filming for What's Love Got To Do With It.

The actress, 31, was pictured practising the outdoor game in London as filming continued for the romantic comedy.

While details about the upcoming film are being kept under wraps, the romantic comedy, written and produced by Jemima Goldsmith, is said to be based on a cross-cultural relationship set between the English capital and South Asia.

Lily was bundled up in a navy checked coat and a matching jumper as she enjoyed the game of table tennis with her co-star.

The Mamma Mia star finished her look with a matching burgundy beanie hat as she played with Shazad for the scenes.

After returning to work on the film in the wake of the Dominic West kissing scandal, Lily was in high spirits as she enjoyed the ping pong game.

It is currently unclear which roles Lily and her co-stars Shazad and Emma, 61, portray in What's Love Got To Do With It, which is being directed by Shekhar Kapur.

The plot is believed to take inspiration from documentary producer Jemima's marriage to Pakistan's current Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The filmmaker, 46, and the former cricketer, 68, were married from 1995 until 2004, with the sportsman revealing their divorce was down to Jemima's inability to adapt to his political life.

Lily has kept a low-profile since she became the subject of worldwide scrutiny when images emerged showing her and actor Dominic West enjoying an al fresco lunch with their mutual agent, Angharad Wood.

They enjoyed a two-day vacation in Italy where they were seen riding on a scooter through Rome, and Dominic appeared to at one point lean over and kiss Lily's neck.

A source told MailOnline the thespians spent two nights in a suite at the top Hotel De La Ville with a panoramic view over the city and just at two minutes walk from the Spanish steps.

Just days later, Dominic defiantly defended his marriage to wife Catherine FitzGerald, with the pair staging a photo opportunity outside their Wiltshire home and telling reporters: 'Our marriage is strong and we're very much still together.'

TV and film star Lily previously dated The Crown star Matt Smith, 38, on and off for five years, with the relationship said to be over just weeks before she was pictured with Dominic.

The brunette has raised eyebrows in the past by forging close friendships with her co-stars in recent productions - Armie Hammer in Rebecca and Dominic in BBC drama The Pursuit Of Love.
