An unlikely duo if there ever was one, but then Comic Relief does have a way of bring people together.
David Walliams tweeted recently that he had just finished filming a sketch for Red Nose day with Professor Stephen Hawking and Catherine Tate.
The Little Britain revival will see Walliams return to his carer character Lou, however it will be Hawking in the wheelchair now as opposed to Andy (Matt Lucas), while Tate is set to play a nun. The sketch was filmed at St John’s College, Cambridge University, where Professor Hawking is a director of research.
You can see the sketch on Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day on March 13.
I just finished an extraordinary two days in Cambridge shooting a sketch for @rednoseday with Catherine Tate & Professor Stephen Hawking.

Professor Stephen Hawking just gave me a script note. It's not every day you get one from a genius.
