  • The Guardian - TV News
Kristin Scott Thomas pops up in Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s brilliantly excruciating comedy, while Harry Redknapp puts some former England football stars through their paces. Here’s all the best TV to tune in for

Fleabag is helping out with an awards ceremony at Claire’s work as Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s excruciating comedy continues. She is serving canapes and trying really hard not to tell any jokes. So, an opportunity for some sisterly bonding? No, of course not. Instead, the episode’s highlight is Fleabag chatting about the menopause over martinis with a guest-starring Kristin Scott Thomas.

Hugh Grant and Kristin Scott Thomas are back for another wedding!

Grant and Scott Thomas, both 58, reunited for a short sequel to their classic 1994 film Four Weddings and a Funeral in a clip for One Red Nose Day and a Wedding which was posted on Friday to Instagram.

One Red Nose Day and a Wedding review – Is it still funny? I hadn't noticed

Twenty-five years after the release of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Richard Curtis’s well-intentioned short sequel for Comic Relief gave rise to no laughs but some genuine pathos

It was every bit as saccharine and self-indulgent and toe-curling as we expected, but the unexpectedly touching vignette from Hugh Grant as the bewildered-but-beaming parent made this an amiable enough trip down memory lane. If Richard Curtis ever wants to do his own remake of Father of the Bride … Grant is his man.

The set-up was that Charles (Grant) and his partner Carrie (a close-to-non-speaking cameo for Andie MacDowell) have a daughter (Lily James) who is adorably marrying the daughter of Charles’s old friend, the one who was secretly in love with him the whole time: Fiona (Kristin Scott Thomas). Lily’s bride is played by Alicia Vikander. It’s a super daring and modern same-sex thing that utterly flusters

Redford, clearly moved by the reception, recalled his youthful first foray to the City of Light as an 18-year-old when he tried to blend in to the background by wearing a beret until he was rumbled by a local as an American tourist.
