The short, titled One Red Nose Day and a Wedding, saw the return of Hugh Grant, Andie MacDowell, Kristin Scott Thomas, John Hannah, Rowan Atkinson, James Fleet, David Haig, Sophie Thompson, David Bower, Robin McCaffrey, Anna Chancellor, Rupert Vansittart, Simon Kunz, Sara Crowe and Timothy Walker.
However, the focus of the sketch was on the marriage between the daughter of Charles (Grant) and Carrie (MacDowell) – played by Lily James – and the daughter of Fiona (Scott Thomas) – played by Alicia Vikander. The two shared their vows before sealing their marriage with a kiss.
The film’s original director, Mike Newell, returned to direct the sketch, which picked up 25 years after the original film.
The sketch follows on from the success of Red Nose Day Actually, a short follow up to 2003’s Love Actually, written and directed by Curtis, that premiered during Red Nose Day’s 2017 edition.
