Posting on Instagram, Reese revealed that fans will be able to watch their reunion on YouTube on Tuesday.

“Ohmigod you guys!! It’s a Legally Blonde Reunion,” she wrote, sharing a preview of the video. “We laughed, we cried and we may or may not have done the bend & snap for old times sake!

“For the first time in 20 years, join me and the #LegallyBlonde cast tomorrow at 3:15PM PST on the @hellosunshine YouTube channel! PS: Don’t you want to see if Elle & Warner finally make up?”

The cast are raising funds for the World Central Kitchen with their reunion, which is a non-profit organisation devoted to providing meals in the wake of natural disasters.

Legally Blonde, which followed a sorority girl who attempts to win back her law student ex-boyfriend by getting a law degree, was released in 2001 and became a sleeper hit for the MGM studio.

Reese reprised her lead role as Elle Woods in a 2003 sequel, with many of the original cast also returning.

Earlier this year, it was reported there had been discussions about a third instalment of the franchise.
