Actress Kate Winslet says she will 'never forget' escaping the fire that destroyed Sir Richard Branson's Caribbean home.

The incidence took place in Necker Island on August 22.

Winslet was glad that none of the 20 guests, including her boyfriend Louis Dowler and two children Mia, 10, and Joe, 7, were hurt.

'I'm just so glad that everyone is safe. And this very easily could not have been the case,' quoted the 35-year-old as saying.

'I will never forget Richard placing his arms around both my children as we were watching the flames, and saying, 'At the end of the day, what you realise is that all that matters is the people that you love. Everything else is just stuff. And none of that stuff matters',' she added.
