His life story may have recently been adapted into a blockbuster movie, but Stephen Hawking is soon to make an appearance on the small-screen, in a Little Britain sketch for Comic Relief!
The physicist will partner with David Walliams for a comic relief skit, where he will replace Matt Lucas’ character Andy who is under the care of Lou (Walliams). It is unconfirmed whether Lucas will appear in the section at all.
Walliams was seen in January this year filming part of the sketch at St John’s College, Cambridge, with Catherine Tate dressed as a nun. We wonder what that’s all about….
Comic Relief (Red Nose Day) airs Friday 13 March on BBC 1, and also will feature Davina McCall, Lenny Henry, Dawn French, Dermot O’Leary and Mr Bean.
