How to type # in vim with a British keyboard layout on OS X

My Mac has a British keyboard layout and the # symbol is entered with option-3, instead of shift-3 as with the US layout. This arrangement, though odd, works fine most of the time. However, when trying to edit a file with vim in a terminal, typing option-3 just takes vim out of edit mode.

Does Ctrl-V, Option-3 work?
