THE TRAITORS: BBC ANNOUNCE FRENCH & SAUNDERS SKETCH FOR RED NOSE DAY
Claudia Winkleman and comedy duo Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders star in a celeb filled sketch for Red Nose Day based around the hit BBC One series The Traitors.
Today on Claudia Winkleman’s Radio 2 show, Richard Curtis revealed the sketch and announced the first celebrity name joining the roundtable will be the nation’s much-loved cook Dame Mary Berry.
Claudia Winkleman (played by Dawn French), assembles the celebrity ‘Faithful’ and ‘Traitors’ for a discussion full of twists and turns. Viewers will need to tune in to find out which other famous faces will be under the cloaks and who will be revealed as the ultimate Traitor?
The real Claudia Winkleman says: “I can't wait for people to see this sketch. I'm so grateful to Comic Relief for putting the whole thing together. I feel like I'm in an alternate universe, and I like it.”
Jennifer Saunders says: “Worst day of my life, I don’t know why I agree to these things. The only reason why I agreed to this one was to meet Mary Berry.”
Dawn French says: “This was the second worst day of my life. The absolute worst one was meeting Jennifer Saunders. The only reason I agreed to this one was to show Claudia Winkleman the horror that awaits her in the mirror in 30 years’ time…”
Richard Curtis says: “I’m unbelievably excited about this sketch. The Traitors is the most brilliant reality show of all time, and I hope that we can mercilessly tear it apart. There's a very impressive group of actors who gathered together to destroy the reputation of Claudia Winkleman and the BBC in aid of Comic Relief.”
Comic Relief Night of TV will air on the 17th of March, on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
