James Bond and Catherine Tate’s Nan are appearing together in a special sketch for Comic Relief’s big night of TV in the UK. In the sketch, Britain’s best loved OAP Nan has spurned retirement and taken up a part time job as a cleaner. Whilst cleaning the office of the head of the Secret Intelligence Service, aka M, she finds herself face to face with 007 as he suddenly appears on screen for his security briefing.
Catherine Tate says: “Nan had a right old time meeting Bond. What a smashing fella! As ever, it was great fun filming this Comic Relief sketch, huge thanks to Daniel and all the Bond team for being such great sports. I hope it raises lots of money on the night.”
The special sketch is part of a three-hour comedy special to be broadcast on BBC One on Friday from 7pm. The money raised by Red Nose Day will support people in the UK and around the world, and help tackle hunger, homelessness, domestic abuse and mental health stigma.
