This changes everything.

But writer and director Richard Curtis has revealed that he cut a significant scene from the film featuring an older lesbian couple.

In the original script, Anna Reid plays a stern headmistress who is in a relationship with terminally ill Geraldine (played by Frances de la Tour). You can watch the deleted scene below:

Talking about the scene, Curtis said: “The idea was meant to be you just casually met this very sort of stern headmistress and the idea was meant to be that later on in the film we suddenly fell in with the headmistress and you realise that no matter how unlikely it seems, that any character you come across in life has their own complicated tale of love.”
