British comedy duo David Walliams and Matt Lucas are back with the return of the cult sketch show, Rock Profile, for this year’s Comic Relief.

Rock Profile and top stars

Expect to see the likes of Adele, Post Malone, Lady Gaga, Lewis Capaldi and many more as you have never seen them before.

“It’s been really fun giving the Rock Profile treatment to a host of stars who weren’t even twinkles in our eyes when we first did the show nearly 25 years ago”, said Lucas.

Walliams said: “It has been a blast working with Matt on Rock Profile again. I can’t wait for everyone to see our brand new characters.”

Vernon Kay said: “I have been watching David and Matt’s sketches for as long as I can remember, so I am super excited to get to be part of one myself. 

“Thankfully I will be playing myself in Rock Profile, so I’ll be saving David or Matt the embarrassment of attempting my accent! 

“To be taking part all in the name of Comic Relief, makes this even better, as the work they do is super important. 

“If we can make a few people laugh and raise some money, then we have done our job! I can’t wait to see what David and Matt have in store for me.”

Tune in from 7pm on Friday 18 March on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
