Image caption As anticipation mounts over the Love Actually Comic Relief sequel on 24 March, pictures were released of Keira Knightley and Chiwetel Ejiofor on set and seemingly still very much an adoring couple - the way we left them at the end of the 2003 film. Other original cast members confirmed to take part in the 10-minute sketch are Liam Neeson, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Olivia Olsen, Martine McCutcheon and Hugh Grant. But Emma Thompson has said it's "too soon" for her after Alan Rickman's death.
