The first trailer for the Love Actually Red Nose Day sequel is here, and it's perfect, actually

We're only days away from getting to watch the much anticipated Love Actually sequel, which sees director Richard Curtis reuniting with many of the classic romcom's stars for a ten minute Red Nose Day special on BBC1.

Excitement levels are high with the likes of Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Andrew Lincoln and Bill Nighy all reprising their roles, as well as Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Sam), Lucia Moniz (Aurelia), Olivia Olson (Joanna), Marcus Brigstocke (Mikey), and Rowan Atkinson (Rufus).

Speaking about the project, Richard Curtis said: "Over the years I've enjoyed doing Red Nose Day specials on TV things I've worked on - Blackadder, The Vicar of Dibley, and Mr Bean. It seemed like a fun idea this year to do a special sketch based on one of my films, since Red Nose Day is now in both the UK an America.

"I would never have dreamed of writing a sequel to Love Actually, but I thought it might be fun to do ten minutes to see what everyone is now up to."

Curtis continued: "We've been delighted and grateful that so many of the cast are around and able to take part - and it'll certainly be a nostalgic moment getting back together and recreating their characters 14 years later.


"We hope to make something that'll be fun - very much in the spirit of the original film and of Red Nose Day - and which we hope will help bring lots of viewers and cash to the Red Nose Day shows."

Watch the trailer below, and then cancel all plans for this Friday, when the special airs for Red Nose Day on BBC1 which kicks off at 7pm.
