It's Take That vs Fake That For Comic Relief

Take That: first there were five, then there were four, then five again, and now there's ten… well, kind of, because the Take That boys will be joined on-stage by five of the UK's best comedians for one night only - all in aid of Comic Relief.

In the hilariously-titled band Fake That, Robbie, who is auctioning a personal item for Comic Relief, will be impersonated by stand-up comedian John Bishop and Gavin and Stacy star and Soccer Aid assistant manager James Corden will become Gary Barlow! Completing the line-up, Chatty Man Alan Carr will morph into Mark Owen, comedienne Catherine Tate becomes Jason Orange and David Walliams is set to play Howard Donald again for the first time since his hilarious Rock Profile programme with Matt Lucas over a decade ago.

In the one-off sketch, which is part of Red Nose Day’s big TV extravaganza, the five comedians will take to the stage for a Take That tribute band audition that's judged by none other than the real Take That boys… Simon Cowell eat your heart out!

The fun-filled show, Comic Relief: Funny For Money, starts on BBC One tonight from 19:00 GMT, so be sure to grab some food, settle down in front of the telly for an evening full of entertainment and please remember to give as generously to Comic Relief as you can. Money raised will help extremely vulnerable and disadvantaged people living in the UK and some of the world's poorest countries.
