David Tennant will be one of the hosts of this year's Comic Relief Red Nose Day television special for Friday 19th March. He will co-present the BBC One fundraising extravaganza along with Alesha Dixon, Davina McCall, Paddy McGuinness and Sir Lenny Henry.
In addition, fans of David and Michael's recent series, Staged will be delighted to hear that they will be reuniting for an exclusive mini-episode of the hit lockdown comedy, to be shown on the night.
The event seeks to raise funds through comedy, entertainment and music to support projects in the UK and abroad, and this year particularly donations will be used to tackle issues including homelessness, hunger, domestic abuse, and mental health problems, all of which have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The journey of Staged has been great fun with producers Phin and Victor Glynn and director Simon Evans and we’re so happy to share the wonderful work they have done for Comic Relief
