As promised, all you Love Actually fans (and even you haters!) will get to see most of the cast of the 2003 holiday classic reunite in a short film to sponsor the annual Red Nose Day, a campaign to end child poverty. And producer of Red Nose Actually, Emma Freud, took to Twitter earlier today to reveal the first photos of Hugh Grant reprising his role as the prime minister (now looking a bit more like an actual prime minister and not just a simple bloke who owns a travel-book shop), and many other behind-the-scenes pics.

The 20-minute short, written by OG Love Actually writer Richard Curtis, will air March 24 on BBC One and broadcast as part of NBC’s Red Nose Day Special on May 25. So, as Aurelia might say, set your DVR “just in cases.”
