Love Actually In Concert will see the the seasonal romcom played on an enormous screen, with a full orchestra performing the score.

The original score to Love Actually was composed by BAFTA winner Craig Armstrong, and featured stellar hits like the Girls Aloud cover of the Pointer Sisters' Jump and Here With Me by Dido.

There was also Sugababes classic Too Lost In You which was chosen specifically by director Richard Curtis and played over the Christmas party scene.

Fans will also remember the 'Billy Mack' version of Christmas is All Around as well as actress Olivia Olson singing Mariah Carey's iconic All I Want For Christmas Is You during the nativity play towards the end.

Tears will no doubt be shed during the heartbreaking scene when Emma Thompson's Karen discovers her husband Harry's affair.

She heads upstairs and weeps while listening to the Joni Mitchell album she received instead of the diamond necklace.

Emma explained that she drew upon experience for that emotional scene, focusing on her relationship with ex Kenneth Branagh who allegedly had an affair with actress Helena Bonham Carter.

"I had my heart very badly broken by Ken. So I knew what it was like to find the necklace that wasn't meant for me. Well, it wasn't exactly that, but we've all been through it," she explained.

Following successful tours in 2017 and 2018, the Richard Curtis 2003 festive flick will start in Exeter and go on to appear in Dublin, Liverpool, Cardiff, Leicester, Manchester, Brighton, Bath, Poole, London, Glasgow, Edinburgh and finish at Birmingham's Symphony Hall on 15 December.

There are still tickets available for the first showing on 23rd November in Exeter with prices varying and starting from £40 across UK venues.

We'll see you there for a good old singalong.
