Vicar Geraldine Granger, played by Dawn French, will grace our screens Friday in a special Vicar of Dibley to raise money for Comic Relief.

Vicar of Dibley RND

Red Nose Day 2013 will also see Ricky Gervais revive office boss David Brent as celebrities hope to raise millions of pounds for the charity on what is its 25th anniversary.

The 10 minute special will see Geraldine heading to London on a mission with Hugo (James Fleet) and Owen (Roger Lloyd-Pack), bumping into Homeland star Damian Lewis on the way. The Vicar of Dibley ran from 1994 until 2007, where the episode on New Year’s Day attracted a whopping 12.8 million viewers.

Ricky Gervais is back as David Brent, ten years since we last seen him at the Office Christmas party. The Office special will see Brent trying to launc the career of a ficticious urban act from London.

Red Nose Day takes place tomorrow, with the main telethon from 7.00pm on BBC One.
