The cast of Richard Curtis’ iconic rom-com Four Weddings and a Funeral have reunited for a Red Nose Day special in aid of Comic Relief, and now we’ve got our first look at the characters together for the first time in 25 years.

Featuring Andie MacDowell, Hugh Grant, Kristin Scott Thomas and more, the first image shows the starry cast in their best wedding attire, but its only James Fleet’s Tom who appears to be wearing a typical Morning suit – is he the one getting married?

Comic Relief has confirmed the quasi-sequel – now titled One Red Nose Day and a Wedding – will premiere exclusively during Red Nose Day 2019 on BBC One on Friday, 15 March.
