Lucas and Walliams revive Rock Profiles

Jordan among their victims

Matt Lucas and David Walliams have recorded six new Rock Profiles sketches, nine years after the TV series ended.

In the new scenes – made specially for the internet – the pair dress up as Jordan and Peter Andre; Amy Winehouse and Pete Doherty; Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow; Kerry Katona and Mark Croft; Ronnie Wood and Ekaterina Ivanova; and Cheryl Cole and Nicola Roberts.

The new material will go out on the Funny Or Die website, in which the pair have a stake, from Monday.

The original Rock Profiles series went out on now defunct digital channel UK Play in 1999 and 2000, before the duo found fame with Little Britain, and featured Jamie Theakston questioning the pair as they impersonated – badly – their targets.

This time around, the show will be hosted by Dermot O’Leary and Miquita Oliver.

Funny Or Die was launched in the US by comedians Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, who recruited Lucas and Walliams as figureheads for the British site when it launched last year.

Here’s a teaser clip from the first episode:
