Love is very much still all around...

The cast of Four Weddings and a Funeral will reunite in 2019 for Red Nose Day.

Hugh Grant (Charles), Andie MacDowell (Carrie) and Kristin Scott Thomas (Fiona) will all star in a new short film, written by Richard Curtis.

Watch the first teaser trailer above!

When is the Four Weddings and a Funeral sequel released in the UK?

It will be shown during Comic Relief, on Friday, March 15, 2019.

One Red Nose Day and a Wedding will follow the same characters as the original 1994 film, over two decades later.

"We're all definitely older - I suspect no wiser," Curtis said. "It's been really enjoyable working out what's happened to all the characters."

He added: "Now they get back together for the fifth wedding, where, as usual, not everything will go as planned."

One Red Nose Day and a Wedding cast: Who will appear?

The cast will also feature John Hannah (Matthew), Rowan Atkinson (Father Gerald), James Fleet (Tom) and David Haig (Bernard), and will once again be directed by Mike Newell.

Completing the cast are Sophie Thompson (Lydia), David Bower (David), Robin McCaffrey (Serena), Anna Chancellor (Henrietta), Rupert Vansittart (George), Simon Kunz (John), Sara Crowe (Laura) and Timothy Walker (Angus).

Charlotte Coleman will sadly not appear as Hugh Grant's sister. She passed away in 2001 at the age of 33.

Four Weddings launched Hugh Grant's career, and was arguably the first truly successful British romantic comedy, inspiring the likes of Notting Hill, Bridget Jones' Diary and Love Actually.

It also spawned the single 'Love is All Around' by Wet Wet Wet, which spent 15 weeks at number one in the summer of 1994.
