Hugh Grant's Love Actually character gave an incredible speech last night

We need more leaders like this in the world.

Love Actually made its return last night as part of Comic Relief. Catching up with all our favourite characters 14 years later was just as good as we hoped. Keira Knightly, Liam Neeson, Hugh Grant, Andrew Lincoln and Martine McCutcheon were all there to reprise their roles.

We caught up with their individual storylines and found out that Keira was still happily married, as were Hugh and Martine. Liam's on-screen son Sam had even rekindled his romance with Joanna from the first movie.

It went down very well with viewers but there was one person who completely stole the show - Hugh.

He was back as Prime Minister and immediately won everyone over by re-enacting his awful dad dancing. He also featured in a press conference where he made an impassioned and powerful speech.

A journalist asked him if he still felt love was all around, a nod to one of his most famous lines from the first movie.

He replied:

"Well, interesting obviously times have got harder and people are nervous and fearful. And it's not just in politics that things are tough, Usain Bolt has run his last Olympics, the Harry Potter films are finished, Piers Morgan is still alive.

But let's look at the other side of the coin, Metallica's album is an absolute cracker and on a deeper level I'm optimistic wherever you see tragedy, you see bravery too. Wherever you see ordinary people in need, you see extraordinary people come to their aid.

Today is Red Nose Day and people who are giving their hard earned cash to people they'll never meet, who's pain and fear they'll never feel and want to fight.

So it's not romantic love that is all round, most people still everyday, everywhere have enough love in their hearts to help human beings in trouble.

Good's going to win, I'm actually sure of it."
