The first of four episodes will air on Saturday night, March 4 at 6.45pm.
Let’s Dance for Comic Relief last aired in 2013 but is back this year for Red Nose Day 2017, now bigger and better than ever before as it has been supersized into Let’s Sing and Dance for Comic Relief.
The show promises more celebrities donning more fantastic outfits and learning more iconic dance routines for Comic Relief, but this time the brave celebrities will be facing double the challenge – dancing and singing!
Celebs lined up for the first show include astrologer Russell Grant who will be performing the 1980’s iconic disco hit Chain Reaction by superstar diva Diana Ross and stand-up comedian and actress Sara Pascoe, who will sing and dance to chart-topping hit Chandelier by Sia.
The stars of Casualty and Holby City will do a special rendition of the huge hit phenomenon Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars. nd there will be a spectacular supergroup performance from The One Show reporters featuring Angellica Bell, Iwan Thomas, Alex Riley, Michelle Ackerley and Dominic Littlewood.
The celebrities will take to the stage to perform in front of a star-studded panel of judges. A different panel of guest stars and comedy royalty will join each week with names including Jo Brand, Jason Manford, Paul O’Grady, Frank Skinner, Jennifer Saunders and Claudia Winkleman giving their opinions.
The celebrity will compete three live heats before a live grand finale. A combination of the viewers at home and the judging panel will decide who makes it through to the final, with the audience crowning the eventual winner, all in aid of Comic Relief.
Red Nose Day is back on Friday 24 March 2017.
