What happens in the 'Love Actually' reunion

The "Love Actually" Red Nose Day television special certainly didn't disappoint, welcoming many surprises along the way as viewers caught up with their favourite characters, Mark, Jamie and Daniel.

We've seen some heartwarming backstage photos from the set in the weeks leading up to the long-awaited premiere, but Entertainment Weekly just shared a few more behind-the-scenes shots that bring on the nostalgia, and hint at what happens in the sequel.

Thankfully, the film's famous (or infamous, depending on your view) love triangle saw some resolution; with Juliet (Keira Knightley) and Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor) still happily married. However, the pair are soon interrupted by an unlikely visitor on the doorstep - Mark (Andrew Lincoln).

Thirteen years ago, Jamie (Colin Firth) and Portuguese housekeeper Aurelia (Lúcia Moniz) fell in love.

After debuting Friday in the United Kingdom, the Red Nose Day Special will air on NBC in the US on May 25. Watch the trailer below. While American viewers will have to wait until May 25, Prime Minister David's dance moves will serve as an appetizer. He also featured in a press conference where he made an impassioned and powerful speech. "Times are tough", said Grant during the sketch, "The Harry Potter Films have finished". But let's look at the other side of the coin, Metallica's album is an absolute cracker and on a deeper level I'm optimistic wherever you see tragedy, you see bravery too.

A Love Actually sequel wouldn't be complete without Hugh Grant dancing, and he has delivered with an injury-riddled rendition of "Hotline Bling". Wherever you see ordinary people in need you see extraordinary ordinary people come to their aid.

Liam Neeson's Daniel gets a big surprise from his step-son Sam (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) who is now living in NY.

"Today is Red Nose Day and people who are giving their hard earned cash to people they'll never meet, but who's pain and fear they feel and want to fight".

Though we live in hard times, he reminds us all that, "wherever you see tragedy, you see bravery too. good's going to win, I'm actually sure of it".

"So it's not romantic love which is all around, most people still, everyday, everywhere have enough love in their hearts to help human beings in trouble".
