Sara Pascoe sings and dances for Comic Relief

'I have made a terrible mistake!'

Sara Pascoe is to be among the celebrities ‘strutting their stuff’ on Let’s Sing and Dance for Comic Relief.

And fellow comics Jo Brand, Jason Manford, Frank Skinner and Jennifer Saunders will be among the rotating panel of judges.

Pascoe – who will be performing Chandelier by Sia –  said: ‘The show-off in me is so, so excited. The sensible person in me believes I have made a terrible mistake!’

Also taking part are Harriet Thorpe and Helen Lederer – known as Absolutely Fabulous’s eccentric duo Fleur and Catriona. Lederer said she was ‘beyond delighted that Catriona and Fleur have been invited to give their bodies and voice for Comic Relief, and in such talented company. Very humbled and excited to be standing by for some lovely costumes and free Abba tips.’

Others taking to the dancefloor include Russell Grant performing Diana Ross’s Chain Reaction;  Sally Lindsay (Cum On Feel The Noize by Slade); stars of Casualty and Holby City  (Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson) and a team of reporters from The One Show, whose song has not yet been revealed.

Russell Kane – who made a splash as Beyonce in the 2011 version of the show – has also tweeted a picture of himself as Taylor Swift as she looks in her Shake It Out video with the hashtag #comicrelief, although he has not officially been announced as one of the contestants yet. Kane is currently taking part in the televised convoy distributing Comic Relief supplies in Africa.

The four episodes, which start on Saturday nights from next month, will be hosted by Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins. More celebrities and judges will be announced soon.
