Michael Crawford to reprise role as the iconic Frank Spencer for special Sport Relief sketch
After nearly 40 years off our screens, Michael Crawford is set to reprise his role as the iconic Frank Spencer in a special one-off Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em sketch for Sport Relief.
Michele Dotrice will also return to her role as long-suffering wife, Betty, for the special.
The sketch will see hapless Frank in a number of calamitous escapades culminating in a chance meeting with cycling legend Sir Bradley Wiggins at the Lee Valley VeloPark with hilarious consequences.
The sketch will be shown exclusively during the Sport Relief Night of TV on Friday 18 March on BBC One.
Michael Crawford says: “I am thrilled and delighted to have been asked to bring Frank back for Sport Relief.”
Michele Dotrice says: “It will be an absolute joy to be reunited again with Frank and fitting, for it is such a wonderful cause.”
Sir Bradley Wiggins says: “I am a huge fan of Michael so it’s an absolute honour to be asked to be involved alongside such an icon of British television... and all for a great cause!”
Alongside sporting icon Sir Bradley Wiggins, a whole host of famous faces from across the world of sport and entertainment will be appearing in this one-off sketch, all of whom will be announced in due course.
