Love Actually: Andrew Lincoln recreates a famous scene in the Red Nose Day teaser trailer: BBC

The first proper look at the Love Actually mini-sequel has arrived.

Fans of Richard Curtis’ rom-com have been given their best look yet at the Red Nose Day short film follow-up in the form of a new trailer.

The clip teases the return of Andrew Lincoln as Mark, last seen betraying his best friend by hitting on his wife with a series of cue cards.

Those big white cardboard sheets are back too – but who’s he sending messages to this time?

Lincoln isn’t the only one star who’s returning for the charity special, now officially titled Red Nose Day Actually.

Curtis has reined in most of the original cast, including Hugh Grant as Prime Minister David and Martine McCutcheon as his beau Natalie, and Chiwetel Ejiofor and Keira Knightley as newlyweds Peter and Juliet.

Liam Neeson is back as Daniel, with an all-grown-up Thomas Brodie Sangster reprising his role as sweet-natured son Sam.

Also starring are Rowan Atkinson, Colin Firth, Marcus Brigstocke, Keir Charles, Lucia Moniz, Kate Moss, and Olivia Olson.

The 10-minute short reportedly won’t feature Emma Thompson, Martin Freeman, Laura Linney, Rodrigo Santoro, or Alan Rickman – who unexpectedly died last year.

There’s not much longer to wait for the full episode, which will air as part of Red Nose Day on Friday, March 24.
