The stars of Love Actually are set to reunite for a 20th-anniversary Christmas special.

The Richard Curtis festive film is often regarded as one of the most popular holiday movies of recent times.

The 2003 movie follows nine intertwined stories about the difficulties and magic of love, as the film builds up to Christmas.

Love Actually featured an all-star cast too, with Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant, Emma Thomas, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Keira Knightly and many more making appearances in the movie.

While an official sequel never happened, there was a brief reunion for Comic Relief, with most of the cast returning to relive some iconic moments from the film.

This includes Grant recreating his dance in Number 10 Downing Street and Andrew Lincoln once again showing up on Knightly’s doorstep with sign cards.

With Christmas fast approaching, it is surely time to start thinking about watching the film once again.

Although, if you want something a bit extra, ABC might have a treat for you.

As Love Actually approaches its 20th anniversary, some of the cast have reunited for a special.

The Laughter & Secrets of Love Actually: 20 Years Later – A Diane Sawyer Special will debut on November 29.

The special will see the journalist interview some of the film’s actors such as Grant and Thompson about the cultural impact of Love Actually and why it has become a much-adored Christmas movie.

The pair will reveal behind the scene moments, such as their amusement at being in the film and how Grant initially didn’t want to do the iconic dance.

He says in the trailer: “When I saw it in the script I thought I’ll hate doing that.” 

The Notting Hill actor then admitted that once he came around to the idea, he did have some creative input in the scene.

Grant added: “I will give myself this credit – it was my idea to have the secretary catch me.”

The show will also interview actors Bill Nighy, who played the foul-mouthed rockstar Billy Mack, Laura Linney, who played love-struck Sarah, and Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who played Liam Neeson’s son Sam in the film.
