Here they go again! But Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders will perform as a double act for the last time on Red Nose Day.

It's wigs and dungarees all round for their final performance - a parody of the movie musical Mamma Mia. It's all in aid of Comic Relief which helps disadvantaged people in Africa and the UK.
