Andie MacDowell takes centre stage as Carrie in a purple dress.

Hugh Grant, fresh from his acclaimed performance as Liberal Party leader Jeremy Thorpe in A Very English Scandal, looks dapper in a grey suit, while Rowan Atkinson returns as Father Gerald.

Four Weddings And A Funeral followed Charles – played by a young Grant – searching for and eventually finding happiness with his American love interest Carrie, played by MacDowell.

The short film will also feature James Fleet, David Haig, Sophie Thompson, David Bower, Robin McCaffrey, Rupert Vansittart, Simon Kunz, Sara Crowe and Timothy Walker.

It follows the success of Red Nose Day Actually, a short sequel to Love Actually, which premiered on Red Nose Day in 2017.

The new film will air on BBC One on Friday March 15.
