Other previously announced sketches to feature during this year’s charity appeal include Rowan Atkinson’s return as Mr. Bean, Dawn French in the Vicar of Dibley and highlights of Peter Kay’s live Phoenix Nights show.

John Bishop, Eddie Izzard, Davina McCall and David Walliams will also take to the stage for a reinvention of Monty Python’s Four Yorkshiremen sketch.
