The 2003 smash is being resurrected for a ten minute Red Nose Day special – and fans couldn’t be more excited.

Viewers have been mesmerised by how grown up the youngest members of the original cast, Olivia Olson and Thomas Brodie-Sangster, are now – who were 11 and 13 at the time.

Oh hello cast member looking slightly older than she did in the original film….

Olivia – who is the voice of Marceline in cult cartoon Adventure Time – looked stunning as she reprised her role alongside Sam

Liam Neeson and Thomas Brodie-Sangster, 26, who is now starring in Game Of Thrones, played the tear-jerking father and son team.

They’ve managed to get hearts melting once again as they embraced each other on set.

Curtis said of the news: “I would never have dreamt of writing a [full] sequel to Love Actually, but I thought it might be fun to do ten minutes to see what everyone is now up to.”

Other A-list names due to appear in the extravaganza are Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Andrew Lincoln, Bill Nighy, Rowan Atkinson and Marcus Brigstocke.

Martin Freeman, Kris Marshall and Emma Thompson are among those not listed. Of course, Alan Rickman sadly died in January 2016.

Scriptwriter Emma Freud has even asked for ideas from fans as to what they think should have happened to their beloved characters after all these years.

The Love Actually sequel will be shown as part of Red Nose Day 2017 on Friday March 24 on BBC One.
