Everyone's in a tizzy about the upcoming "sequel" to either beloved or loathed Christmas film Love, Actually and now you can get more excited because two key characters are still together. 

The short film follow-up, debuting on Red Nose Day on March 24, will feature a bevy of the original film's characters, including Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy, Andrew Lincoln, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Rowan Atkinson (though not Emma Thompson or the late Alan Rickman for an obvious, heartbreaking reason). 

And, now, thanks to screenwriter Emma Freud (via Buzzfeed), we know it will also include Hugh Grant and Martine McCutcheon who — SPOILER ALERT — will still be together. Grant's David is still prime minister and he and McCutcheon's Natalie are still married, Freud revealed via Twitter.

Freud's tweets are timed with the on-set visit of some lucky contest winners, who appeared as extras in scenes involving Grant and McCutcheon.

The short will air on the BBC on March 24 and will very likely make the rounds online immediately after, though you can also catch it on NBC on May 25 during the U.S. version of Red Nose Day, which, like the UK original, uses comedy to raise money for children's charities.
