People stunned after discovering 'Love Actually 2' actually exists with the original cast

People stunned after discovering 'Love Actually 2' actually exists with the original cast

The 2003 Christmas hit actually has a 2017 sequel

Following its eagerly-anticipated release back in 2003, Love, Actually quickly of one of the world's most widely-adored Christmas movies of all time.

I mean, what's not to love? Colin Firth falling hopelessly in love with his breathtaking Portuguese housekeeper, Emma Thompson telling cheating love-rat Alan Rickman where he can stick his Joni Mitchell CD, and Kiera Knightly being caught in a tricky love triangle with two best friends.

It's a cinematic masterpiece!

As well as the adorable intertwining storylines between each of the characters, the Richard Curtis hit became immensely popular due to it's Hollywood cast.

Hugh Grant, Laura Linney, Liam Neeson, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Bill Nighy, Andrew Lincoln, Martin McCutcheon, Martin Freeman, Joanna Page, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Rowan Atkinson also star in this festive hit.

And this Christmas, hundreds of fans of his star-studded blockbuster have been left utterly blind-sided after discovering that a Love, Actually sequel already exists.

That's right - back in 2017, 14 years after the original release - the majority of the cast reunited for a follow-up film.

Many fans couldn't believe there is a Love, Actually sequel.

"Did y’all know they did a 15 minute update to where the characters are at now for Red Nose Day. I didn’t," one movie-lover tweeted this week.

Another wrote: "Found out today that Love Actually has a sequel called Red Nose Day Actually. It’s only 15 minutes long but [crying emoji]."

The sequel was produced in aid to Red Nose Day to raise money for those in need.

For those who can't resist a spoiler as to what exactly goes down in the big-name sequel, read on...

Chiwetel Ejiofor and Kiera Knightley return as husband-and-wife Peter and Juliet.

In the second instalment, Juliet (Kiera Knightley) and hubby Peter (Chitwetel Ejiofor) are watching TV together when Mark (Andrew Lincoln) once again appears with his gigantic flash-cards, revealing he had in fact married a model - as he hoped to do in the original movie - who ends up being none other than Kate Moss.

Meanwhile, bumbling politician David (Hugh Grant) has regained his position as Prime Minister and is seen to be dancing around No. 10 once again, this time with wife Natalie (Martin McCutcheon).

He goes on to make an inspirational public speech about how love and good will win in the end, despite the hard times that the country is facing.

Legendary singer Billy Mack (Bill Nighy) has released another charity single, and claims during an interview that he did so in order to raise money for Red Nose Day, before jestingly admitting he only cares about the children that buy his records.

Colin Firth reprises the role of loveable lonely heart Jamie, who we see picking his kids up from school with his now-wife Aurélia, during which she reveals she is pregnant with their fourth child.

With the language barrier proving to be a problem once again, however, Jamie believes she is telling him what's for dinner.

Liam Neeson and Thomas Brodie-Sangster return as stepfather and son Daniel and Sam.

All-grown-up youngster Sam (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) has moved to New York since the first movie, and stepdad Daniel (Liam Neeson) has flown across the pond to visit him.

Initially concerned as to why Sam hasn't been in touch recently, Daniel is shocked to discover that his stepson has actually rekindled his romance with American childhood crush Joanna, who asks for Sam's hand in marriage.

And much like the first movie, doting customer service assistant Rufus (Rowan Atkinson) returns to elaborately wrap some red noses for a long line of customers.

Some things never change!
