Hatton is among 15 other celebrities who have signed up for the one-off show, with impressionist Jon Culshaw, ventriloquist Nina Conti and stand-up comic Tim Vine also confirmed to appear. One person who is particularly looking forward to the upcoming instalment of the show, which has been a fixture in the Comic Relief schedule since 2009, is co-host Steve Jones, who said he looks forward to this show more than any other he fronts.
