It was the highly awaited sequel to the iconic festive flick 13 years after it first hit cinema screens.

And Love Actually's Red Nose Day TV special didn't fail to entertain as viewers got to delve into the worlds of their beloved characters once more on Friday night as audiences caught up with Mark, Jamie and Daniel again.

Setting the tone, the short clip began with Juliet (Keira Knightly) on the sofa with her husband Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor) when Mark (Andrew Lincoln) suddenly arrived at their front door equipped with cue cards again.



Starting off on the right foot, fans rejoiced as they saw Colin Firth's character Jamie happily married to Portuguese love Aurelia (Lucia Moniz) following his public proposal 13 years ago, while still sporting his signature turtle necks.

Viewers were filled with glee as he was revealed to be the proud father of three bi-lingual children with a fourth on the way.

Despite cinematic revellers remembering his character valiantly learning his other half's native tongue, Jamie's Portuguese still isn't quite up to scratch as he hilariously responded to Aurelia touching reveal about their new arrival.

“The Secret Scripture” had its world premiere at the 2016 Toronto Film Festival. Now, the film adaptation of Sebastian Barry’s 2008 bestselling novel of the same name is ready for its big screen release this May. The film comes from beloved Irish director Jim Sheridan, who has six Oscar nominations to his name, for films like “My Left Foot” (1989), “In The Name Of The Father” (1993) and “In America” (2002). 


The film follows the story of Roseanne McNulty (Vanessa Redgrave), an elderly woman who has spent 50 years in a mental institution in Ireland. The film takes viewers into Roseanne’s past. As a young woman (played by Rooney Mara), Roseanne was involved in a love triangle between a fighter pilot (Jack Reynor) and a priest (Theo James) that had devastating consequences for all three of them.

Crowds flock to see David Tennant in new clip from Mad to Be Normal

You may be used to seeing David Tennant as dour and dreary DI Hardy in Broadchurch – a man who can't even understand the simple joy in a scotch egg. But in the actor's next role, he undergoes a transformation...

Gone is the dishevelled suit and stubbly chin and in their place is a suave, clean-shaven Tennant who looks rather rock star-like as he takes the stage in new film Mad to Be Normal.

The film – released on 6th April – tells the story of the Scottish psychiatrist's life and the unique community he fostered at Kingsley Hall in east London. Flying in the face of popular psychiatric thinking of the day, Laing had his own revolutionary take on mental health treatment and became enormously popular in the 1960s and 70s.

Colin Firth played the hapless Jamie in “Love Actually” in 2003. He won over his Portuguese housekeeper Aurelia (Lucia Moniz) and the rest of us with his winsome ways. The two actors have reunited to take part in a 10-minute film that will air as part of Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day specials in both the UK (March 24) and the US (May 25). Writer/director Richard Curtis, who is heavily involved in this good cause, has crafted an update.

His partner Emma Freud, who is producing this special, is keeping us updated on the filming via Twitter. She sent out the photo above, that has Firth once again in the driver seat but this time Moniz doesn’t look as nervous.

First to arrive on the set several weeks ago was Liam Neeson who played stepfather to a boy (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) trying to come to loss with the death of his mother. Back then, he counseled the teen to try win over a visiting American girl with music. Jump ahead to today, and that little girl with the big voice who belted out Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is now all grown up.
