Spoiler:
The only real disappointment - and I'd have to be really picky - was that there was no UD content/references at all. Nor Dawn French. She's have made a great 'blind cook'. Flour flying everywhere ...

Joanna struggling with her Scottish accent and then just sitting down with the 'poshies'

"Pssst. Is she meant to be here?"
:lol:


Never tried this spoiler thing before, I hope it works...
Spoiler:
Well, Jennifer said on Facebook that Dawn was ill and couldn' be there. Too bad.

Re: Comic Relief - Red Nose Day

Richard Curtis (Vicar of Dibley e.g.) said in an interview from a month ago or so that it was supposed to be a French & Saunders sketch. So Britta is right, as far as the public has been told, Dawn was ill and couldn't perform. I wonder who took over her part? :unsure:

I'd imagine it was re-written, taking Dawn French's character out. Unless it was the Victoria Wood part, but she would have been perfect for the 'blind' cook, as I say.

Such a shame that Dawn was ill and couldn't be in the sketch :no:
