Comic Relief is just getting better and better for charity and comedy.
There is just plenty for everyone. There were loads of hosts, Jonathan
Ross, Lenny Henry, Chris Evans, Alan Partridge (Steve Coogan), Davina
McCall, Graham Norton and Dermot O'Leary. The parts of the show that
stuck out were: The Vicar of Dibley starring Dawn French, Emma
Chambers, Trevor Peacock, Roger Lloyd-Pack, James Fleet and John
Bluthal. Spider-Plant Man starring Rowan Atkinson, Simon Pegg, Nick
Frost, Rachel Stevens, Jim Broadbent, Peter Andre and Tony Robinson.
Dick (Richard McCourt) and Dom (Dominic Wood) Celebrity Bogies with
Rupert Grint and Sara Cox in Madame Tusaads. Alistair McGowan and Ronni
Ancona's impression sequence. Little Britain starring David Walliams,
Matt Lucas, Simon Callow, Sir Elton John, Trisha Goddard, George
Michael and Robbie Williams. Comic Relief Does Fame Academy bits
starring Cat Deeley, Patrick Kielty, Richard Park, Lesley Garrett,
Craig Revel Horwood, David and Carrie Grant, Jon Culshaw, Gina Yashere,
Adrian Edmondson, Coronation Street's Debra Stephenson, Jenny Eclair,
Al Murray, EastEnders' Kim Medcalf, and winning Edith Bowman. My Family
with Robert Lindsay, Zoë Wanamaker, Kris Marshall and Nell McAndrew.
Absolutely Fabulous's Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley with Emma
Bunton and Richard Curtis (manager of Comic Relief). A brief Mel Smith
and Griff Rhys Jones reunion. But of course, the best part was the
video of (Is This The Way To) Amarillo sung by Tony Christie with Peter
Kay miming, with appearances by Patrick McGuinness, Mark 'Bez' Berry,
Mr. Blobby, Bono, Jim Bowen, David Bowie, Ronnie Corbett, Ken and
Deirdre of Coronation Street, Geoffrey Hayes and Bungle, Sir Jimmy
