Catherine Tate sketch
Ten very lucky Year 13 students at Warlingham Sixth Form got to be extras in a sketch with Catherine Tate that was broadcast live by the BBC on Friday night as part of the Red Nose Day show. In the sketch, Lauren Cooper (Catherine Tate) meets Sir Lenny Henry and Warwick Davis and lets them know what she thinks of Comic Relief.
The students - Tom Anderson, Jed Arno, Shauna Burke, Maia Cooper, Amelia Hill, Dan Hill, Keji Kamoju, Serena Rossetti, Sam Shread and Abby Stephens - travelled to the O2 at the end of a very busy week of fundraising activities for Red Nose Day, St Christopher's Hospice and Cancer Research UK, as part of the sixth form’s Rag Week.
Along with students from a school in London, the excited students got to see all the backstage excitement up close. They saw many celebrities, including: Joe Lycett, Micky Flanagan, Greg Davies, Rob Beckett, Miranda Hart, Rag’n’Bone Man, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Joel Dommett, Jonathan Ross, Ed Sheeran and of course, Warwick Davis, Sir Lenny Henry and Catherine Tate who were all in the sketch.
The sketch can be viewed online at the BBC’s official Youtube Channel.
Mr Scott, Head of Sixth Form said “We’re very proud of our sixth formers, who were chosen based on their contribution to the fundraising effort in the run up to Red Nose Day. We’re so pleased that they were given such a fabulous opportunity as a thank you for their commitment and dedication.”
