Let’s Dance for Comic Relief
Sat Feb 16, 6.50-8.10pm, BBC1
Fri Feb 8 2013
Series five, episode one
The Comic Relief takeover of sturdy BBC formats steps up a gear for this fifth series of ‘Let’s Dance for Comic Relief’. Details remain mostly underwraps, but you can probably expect a fair bit of crossdressing, a clutch of more comfortably built celebs attempting unfeasibly acrobatic routines and, you never know, the odd instance of genuinely impressive hoofing.
Confirmed participants for the four heats include quickfire gag man Tim Vine, retired boxer Ricky Hatton, impressionist Jon Culshaw and ventriloquist Nina Conti, the latter surely doing a routine based around ‘The Jungle Book’s’ chimp-human face-off ‘I Wanna Be Like You’. Well, it’s all in a good cause, etc, etc.
