Well, it was a great 24 hours of fantasy news at least, right?

All of those reported rumours about 'The Holiday' getting a sequel 17 years later are fake, according to director Nancy Meyers.

Yesterday, news allegedly broke that the Christmas film from 2006 starring Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law and Jack Black would be back with a follow-up. Unfortunately, we also got caught up in the frenzy and reported that Diaz was coming out of retirement for it.

A "source" allegedly told The Sun: "The plan is to start rolling on scenes next year, primarily in the U.K. and in Europe, but the main talent are all signed up and on board."

But again, it's all fake!

Original writer-director Nancy Meyers has taken to Instagram to say that she was overwhelmed with messages about the prospect of a sequel to 'The Holiday', but none of it is true. She wrote: "So many DM’s about this — sorry but it’s not true."

Even The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AKA The Oscars) is bummed about the real news, commenting three sobbing crying emojis underneath Meyers' post.

It seems highly likely that we'll never know what was next for Amanda, Iris, Graham and Miles all these years later, so we're just going to have to re-watch the original on loop for the rest of the day to console ourselves - it's the only option.
