Sport Relief 2020 aired tonight with sketches including parodies of Line of Duty and Killing Eve.
A stellar line-up of hilarious films featured in Sport Relief’s fundraising night of TV.
Alex Scott, Oti Mabuse, Emma Willis, Tom Allen, Maya Jama and Rylan Clark-Neal joined Sport Relief regulars Gary Lineker and Paddy McGuinness on presenting duties this evening.
Highlights on the night included a Line of Duty parody in which DS Arnott, DI Fleming and Superintendent Hastings are back and only interested in one thing, catching bent coppers. In an exclusive ‘deleted’ scene from series five, all three can be seen interrogating DC Taylor, an accused corrupt copper (played by Jason Isaacs) who they suspect knows the identity of the real ‘H’.
Unfortunately for DC Taylor, his representation comes in the form of ineffective lawyer David Rickman (played by Lee Mack).
You can watch the Sport Relief Line Of Duty sketch above.
Also airing tonight was Killing Eve parody Killing Steves as the hit BBC drama underwent a Sport Relief makeover. A mysterious blonde assassin is on a killing spree, and targeting victims all with the first name “Steve”.
In this Sport Relief special famous Steve’s from across the UK including snooker legend Steve Davis, Coronation Street favourite Steve McDonald, sporting icon Steve Redgrave and presenter and magician Stephen Mulhern meet their comedic deaths, but who is Killing Steves?
