The Great British Bake Off hosts are to present Let’s Sing and Dance for Comic Relief.
“I’m thrilled to be co-presenting Lets Sing and Dance for Comic Relief, not least because it will finally show the world why I was voted West Penwith’s Krumping Champion (over 40s category).” – Sue Perkins
Earlier this month, BBC One announced Let’s Sing and Dance for Comic Relief. Today Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins are confirmed as hosts of the new Saturday night prime time show.
The comic double act will preside as celebrities take to the stage with unforgettable dance routines and breath-taking – in more ways than one – vocals.
Let’s Sing and Dance for Comic Relief will be on BBC One next year ahead of Red Nose Day 2017. Mel and Sue presented their final regular edition of the Great British Bake Off on Wednesday night on BBC One. The programme moves to Channel 4 in 2017.
The duo will be however seen on a Bake Off Christmas Special this December. PE teacher Candice Brown was crowned the winner of The Great British Bake Off 2016.
“Bringing Mel and Sue to BBC One on a Saturday night is hugely exciting. Their warmth, wit, charm and chemistry married with their genuine love of entertainment are all a perfect fit for Let’s Sing and Dance for Comic Relief. They will challenge contestants to stretch their hamstrings, vocal chords and of course don red noses in the most memorable way possible.” – Kate Phillips, Controller, BBC Entertainment Commissioning
BBC One aired Let’s Dance (no singing) in alternate years for Comic and Sport relief between 2009-2013.
