After a gap of nearly 40 years, Michael Crawford is set to reprise his role as the iconic and accident prone Frank Spencer in a special one-off Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em sketch for Sport Relief which supports charity projects in Kenya.

He will be joined by Michele Dotrice, returning to her role as long-suffering but incredible patient and understanding wife, Betty, for the special.

“I am thrilled and delighted to have been asked to bring Frank back for Sport Relief.” – Michael Crawford

The sketch will see hapless Frank in a number of calamitous escapades culminating in a chance meeting with cycling legend Sir Bradley Wiggins at the Lee Valley VeloPark. It will be shown exclusively during the Sport Relief Night of TV on Friday 18 March on BBC One.

“It will be an absolute joy to be reunited again with Frank and fitting, for it is such a wonderful cause.” – Michele Dotrice

 “I am a huge fan of Michael so it’s an absolute honour to be asked to be involved alongside such an icon of British television… and all for a great cause!” 

– Sir Bradley Wiggins

Alongside sporting icon Sir Bradley Wiggins, a whole host of famous faces from across the world of sport and entertainment will be appearing in this one-off sketch, all of whom will be announced in due course.
