When Comic Relief Did Big Brother | Preview (BBC Two)

In 2001, six celebrities entered the Big Brother house in aid of Comic Relief. It was eight days that had the nation hooked and helped raise millions of pounds. 

22 years on since the original broadcast, winner Jack Dee and fellow housemates Vanessa Feltz, Claire Sweeney, Keith Duffy and Anthea Turner take a look back at this extraordinary moment in television history.

From dancing in underpants to Vanessa writing on the furniture and Jack Dee’s great escape, revisit where celebrity reality TV was born.

The epic three-hour fundraising night will entertain the nation with hilarious sketches, live performances, big surprises and stunning music acts, whilst raising much-needed cash for good causes at home and across the world.

When Comic Relief Did Big Brother airs Friday 17th March at 10pm on BBC Two.
