Atomic Kitten, Countdown's Rachel Riley, former WAG Nancy Dell'Olio and actresses Cherie Lunghi and Kelsey Beth, have joined forces to take part in a 'Calendar Girls'-inspired photoshoot for Comic Relief
Atomic Kitten have taken part in a 'Calendar Girls'-inspired photoshoot for Comic Relief.
The girl band - made up of Kerry Katona, Natasha Hamilton and Liz McClarnon - joined forces with Countdown's Rachel Riley, former WAG Nancy Dell'Olio and actresses Cherie Lunghi and Kelsey Beth to celebrate the launch of Emma Bridgewater's stunning new homeware range for Red Nose Day 2013.
Natasha - who recently reformed the band with the girls for ITV2 show 'The Big Reunion' - said: "The money you raise through fundraising will help people living incredibly tough lives right here in the UK and throughout Africa. So on your marks, get set, go and do something funny for money this Red Nose Day on Friday March 15th 2013."
The star-studded collection have imitated poses from the 2003 movie - which sees a Women's Institute become a media sensation when they raise money for a local hospital by posing nude for a calendar - and Nancy, 51, is hoping the shoot will inspire people to raise money for charity by purchasing some of Emma's collection.
She explained: "I really enjoyed taking part in this shoot as I'm a long-term supporter of Comic Relief. Red Nose Day is all about doing something funny for money. By having fun in the kitchen, I've hopefully raised a few smiles, and reminded people that buying an apron or a mug and having fun in the kitchen is one of the simplest ways to donate".
Emma's range features six different mug designs, two tea towels and apron designs, an oven glove and a bag for life and reflects the Red Nose Day theme, 'Do Something Funny for Money'.
Money raised from sales of the products will be spent by Comic Relief to help people living extremely tough lives across Africa and here in the UK.
Red Nose Day takes place this year on Friday March 15th, 2013.
