Watch: Keira Knightley's the one with the cards in Love Actually 2

Ever since we learned that the cast of 2003’s Love Actually are reuniting to film the highly-anticipated sequel for this year’s Comic Relief, we’ve been desperate for spoilers.

Sure, Love Actually 2 will only be around 10 minutes long, but we’ve got so many unanswered questions. Did the Prime Minister (Hugh Grant) and Natalie (Martine McCutcheon) go on to become the ultimate power couple of the political world, for example? Did Laura Linney’s Sarah ever get over her office crush? Did Bill Nighy’s Billy Mack ever figure out the difference between Ant and Dec? Was Rowan Atkinson’s character a ghost

And what happened to the small, unnamed octopus child that taught us eight really is a lot of legs?


Thank goodness, then, that a second trailer for Red Nose Day Actually has landed.

And, this time around, it seems as if Juliet (Keira Knightley) is the one holding all the cards.

Literally. She’s literally holding all the cards.

Watch the clip for yourselves below:

Yes, it’s only 50 seconds long – but, considering the film itself will be about 10 minutes in total, it makes sense to keep trailers on the short side.

And it’s probably left fans feeling as if “love, actually,  is all around” (sorry).

It is, of course, not the first trailer that the Love Actually 2 gods (otherwise known as Emma Freud and Richard Curtis) have treated us to.

Just last week, we were treated to a clip of Andrew Lincoln as Mark.

And… well, we don’t want to ruin all of Curtis’ mushy magic.

Watch the footage for yourselves below:

The music. The cards. A well-dressed Lincoln without a zombie in sight. Yup, it genuinely does feel as if we’ve hopped in a time machine and shot back into the early Noughties, doesn’t it?

However it’s safe to say that Lincoln hasn’t given away too many details about the mini-sequel we’ve all been waiting for. We guess we’ll have to wait for Love Actually 2 to hit our screens later this month before we find out what’s actually (ha, see what we did there?) going on.

Speaking about the project, 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. Who has aged best? I guess that’s the big question… or is it so obviously Liam?

“We’ve been delighted and grateful that so many of the cast are around and able to take part – and it’ll certainly be a nostalgic moment getting back together and recreating their characters 14 years later.”

The 10-minute Love Actually 2 movie will air during BBC One’s live Red Nose Day in aid of Comic Relief on 24 March.
