So this Love Actually character is now apparently in jail

The BBC have released the first trailer for the Love Actually sequel, and we're already squealing with excitement.

Andrew Lincoln, 43, pays homage to one of the most iconic scenes from the original movie by holding handwritten cue cards to tell people to tune in to the Love Actually reunion on Red Nose Day on March 24 in this wonderful brand-new teaser.

If it wasn't for the fact that we know he's on "The Walking Dead", we'd be anxious about him but looking like you've been put through the ringer is just par for the course on that show.

Anyone who's seen Love Actually knows about his character's epic declaration of love to Keira Knightley's character.

A slight note of clarification, though: While the teaser promises Red Nose Day Actually's March 24 premiere, that's a United Kingdom date.

In the trailer for the sequel - which will be a short comic relief film to raise funds for Red Nose Day - Mark flips those white cards once again.

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

Has Hugh Grant's character moved on from Prime Minister role?

"Red Nose Day Actually" will air on BBC One on March 24th 2017, and NBC in the States on May 25th.

Freud has also been fielding suggestions for the plot from fans on Twitter. We'll find out for sure on March 24 when both Red Nose Day and, presumably, an uploaded video of the sequel hit our screens.

He said he was also "delighted" most of the original cast had agreed to take part, adding: "It'll certainly be a nostalgic moment getting back together".

"We hope to make something that'll be fun - very much in the spirit of the original film and of Red Nose Day".
