The not-so-secret filming on the Love Actually follow-up continues apace, with Hugh Grant photographed on-set yesterday (March 5) in his guise as Prime Minister David.

In keeping with the charitable nature of the sequel, producer Emma Freud has been posting exclusive competitions and photos from each day of filming the Red Nose Day special on her Twitter feed.

And yes, before you ask, Natalie, as played by Martine McCutcheon, was also there. If Freud’s caption is anything to go by, it seems the lovebirds have got married since we last saw them 13 years ago.

Awww. The “writer” is of course Richard Curtis, the brains behind the original Love Actually and films such as Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill, all of which starred the lovely Hugh. He also just happens to be Freud’s husband.

It also appears that David is still prime minister, which would make him one of the longest running premiers since Sir Robert Walpole in the eighteenth century.

It seems he’s giving a speech in front of a room full of journalists, and watching him is an adoring First Lady Natalie.

David and Natalie will be one of many couples reuniting for the charity special in aid of Comic Relief, due to air in the U.S. on May 24. Also set to return are father and son duo Daniel (Liam Neeson) and Sam (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), while jewelry salesman Rufus (Rowan Atkinson) who also made an appearance on-set recently.

News of the reunion was tinged with sadness, however, as Alan Rickman‘s untimely death last year means it won’t include his and Emma Thompson‘s characters. Perhaps the news that David and Natalie are still together will go some way to mend our broken hearts.

Are you looking forward to the reunion?
