More than 25 years after the classic film Four Weddings and a Funeral first showed in cinemas, it came back for a Red Nose Day mini-sequel.
And, LGBTI comedy fans delighted that the British comedy classic centered on a same-sex wedding.
Daughter of the two original leads – Charles (Hugh Grant) and Carrie (Andie MacDowell) — married the daughter of Fiona (Dame Kristen Scott Thomas).
Lily James and Alicia Vikander played the two women respectively.
A bumbling Rowan Atkinson reprised his role as vicar.
If that wasn’t enough, Sam Smith made a cameo as a wedding singer in the short film.
Smith this weekend came out as non-binary genderqueer.
Titled One Red Nose Day and a Wedding, it aired on BBC on Friday (March 15) as part of Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day fundraising efforts.
It raised £63 million (US$84 million) for charity.
LGBTI Twitter loved it
