“We hope to make something that’ll be fun”

The 10-minute short-film will be aired on March 24th on BBC One, as part of the Red Nose Day appeal.

Director, Richard Curtis said: “I would never have dreamt of writing a sequel to Love Actually, but I thought it might be fun to do 10 minutes to see what everyone is now up to.

“We hope to make something that’ll be fun – very much in the spirit of the original film and of Red Nose Day.”

The writer said he was “delighted” that so many of the original cast could take part, adding: “It’ll certainly be a nostalgic moment getting back together.”

Fans will be pleased to know that Martine McCutcheon, Andrew Lincoln, Lucia Moniz, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Olivia Olson will also reprise their original roles.
