Catherine Tate's foul-mouthed Nan character will star opposite Daniel Craig's James Bond for a 'Comic Relief' skit
Catherine Tate is to reunite with Daniel Craig's James Bond for a 'Comic Relief' skit.
The 51-year-old actress will portray her infamous Nan character for the charitable sketch show on Friday (19.03.21), in which the foul-mouthed OAP will land a part-time cleaning job at 007's Secret Intelligence Service headquarters.
Bond finds himself answering invasive questions during his security briefing with no-nonsense Nan.
Catherine said: "Nan had a right old time meeting Bond. What a smashing fella. As ever, it was great fun filming this 'Comic Relief' sketch, huge thanks to Daniel and all the Bond team for being such great sports. I hope it raises lots of money."
The duo first joined forces for charity 12 years ago when Daniel, 53, used the charm of his Bond character to gently let down Catherine's unlucky-in-love character Elaine Figgis.
What's more, Justin Bieber and Gabrielle are set to perform for 'Comic Relief', with the 27-year-old singer performing his track, 'Hold On', and Gabrielle will sing 'Smile'.
Justin said: "I’m looking forward to performing on 'Comic Relief' this Friday and being a part of such a great night for a charitable cause. I hope everyone enjoys the show!"
Gabrielle added of her performance: "I am so pleased to be a part of this year’s Comic Relief, it’s an honour to support their phenomenal work, this year more than ever."
Other performers include the cast of 'Back to The Future: The Musical', who will sing 'Put Your Mind To It', and viral internet sensations The Marsh Family, will perform their version of 'Total Eclipse of The Heart', aptly titled 'Totally Fixed Where We Are'.
