David Walliams on The Jeremy Kyle Show for Comic Relief

David Walliams takes over The Jeremy Kyle Show for Comic Relief in tonight's Red Nose Day telethon.

In scenes to be shown on Red Nose Day on March 24 on BBC One, David Walliams, playing middle class Jeremy Kyle, takes the REAL Jeremy Kyle to task in front of his baying studio audience.

The accusation? That Jeremy Kyle has stolen all of Dom Littlewood’s viewers from BBC One’s Caught Red Handed… because Jeremy "shouts loudly at his guests".

"Jeremy Kyle turned out to be a great sport in the special sketch for Comic Relief," David said. "The conceit is that he is a guest on his own show.

"I made sure we did as many takes as possible. What could be more pleasurable than shouting at Jeremy Kyle and repeatedly slapping him across the face?"

The sketch will air on Friday, March 24 on BBC One.

The fun starts on BBC One at 7pm with a host of comic favourites, old and new, including Sir Lenny Henry, Joe Lycett, Rob Beckett, Romesh Ranganathan, Warwick Davis, Sally Phillips, Jonathan Ross and French & Saunders.

They'll preside over a mammoth night of live comedy, sketches, music moments, fundraising films and much much more on what promises to be TV’s most unpredictable night of raucous horseplay ever.

Expect the unexpected as a night of fun, foolery and fundraising is broadcast LIVE from Red Nose Day’s new comedy superclub home.

Sir Lenny Henry will launch proceedings with a very special opening sequence before the biggest comedy party on the planet gets underway with special guests, films and skits.

Highlights include everything from James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke to a special Smack The Pony reunion plus the much anticipated follow up to Love Actually - Red Nose Day Actually.
