A new photo from the Love Actually sequel set has been released, dropping major hints as to who Keira Knightley's character ends up with. Writer Emma Freud shared a photo on Twitter, showing Keira, who plays Juliet, and her husband Peter, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor, lounging at home on a sofa. Judging by the photo and the caption, it looks like the couple are still happily married, despite Peter's best friend Mark declaring his feelings for Juliet in the 2003 film.

"Last night, our last night on #rednosedayactually. Marital bliss, the best pyjama bottoms I've ever seen, and major #jerseyenvy #shallow," Emma wrote on Twitter. The behind-the-scenes shot showed Keira and Chiwetel in between takes, chatting to director Richard Curtis.

However, it seems viewers haven't seen the last of unlucky-in-love Mark, played by Andrew Lincoln. The actor will star in the ten-minute sequel alongside Keira and Chiwetel. Writer Emma has shared some more photos from the set, showing Mark with his famous cue cards. "It was 13 years ago. There is more facial hair now. But he still loves her.... #rednosedayactually," Emma captioned the photo. Another image showed Keira watching the action from behind the camera. "At least someone thinks Andrew Lincoln is funny. Keira Knightley more beautiful than ever. #tomeyouareperfect #rednosedayactually #march24th," teased Emma.

Chatting to Entertainment Weekly, Andrew recently revealed: "Richard [Curtis] got in touch about a month ago and mentioned he had something in mind. I'm shooting something in March. It's fun and going to be really great to see everyone again. It's very exciting. It's a very cool thing."

The short Comic Relief special, dubbed Red Nose Day Actually, will centre on what the characters are up to in 2017. Other stars set to reprise their roles include Liam Neeson, Rowan Atkinson and Hugh Grant, while Emma Thompson has confirmed that her character won't make an appearance following the sad passing on her on-screen husband Alan Rickman. The featurette will be shown on 24 March on BBC One as part of the Red Nose Day appeal.
