Today is in UK Red Nose Day. Tom Felton, Rupert Grint and many other stars (Paul McCartney, James Gordon Smithy, Goerge Michael, Ringo Starr, Justin Bieber…) did together a sketch for this year’s Comic Relief – Red Nose Day on BBC.
Enjoy it – it’s great! 🙂 Thanks to Red Nose Day for the video!
James Corden’s sketch for this year’s Comic Relief was one of the funniest and star-studded ever in the history of the show. Full of top stars and celebrities from George Michael to former Prime Minister Gordon Brown, the hilarious sketch climaxed with Sir Paul McCartney telling James Corden that he was too fat to go to Africa.
James played the character of the chirpy plumber Smithy from Gavin & Stacey in thesketch which saw several celebrities arguing over who should go to Africa to make a film about the work of Comic Relief. Apart form Gordon Brown and Sir Paul, among the stars were Lords Coe and Winston, Keira Knightley, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton from the Harry Potter films, JLS, Rio Ferdinand, Tiny Tempah, Ringo Starr, Justin Bieber, and Olympic diver Tom Daley all apparently in the same meeting room.
Keira was told she couldn’t go to Africa because she was too gorgeous and Rio was not allowed to go for being unable to produce tears on demand.
When Smithy eventually volunteered, Paul told him he’s a bloater and said:
“People don’t like seeing tubby people over in Africa. If they hadn’t eaten so much, no one would be starving.”
Smithy arrived with George Michael in his plumber’s estate car, singing along to classic Wham! tunes.
Social media sites lit up within seconds of the sketch transmitted with people raving about the sketch including Good Morning’s Philip Schofield, who spoke for many when he said “Genius”. Corden replied, thanking everyone for their kind words and reminding them that it wasn’t just him who put it together.
Tom was also Trendic Topic Worldwide and in United Kingdom.
