Martin Clunes and Neil Morrissey are to revive their iconic Men Behaving Badly characters for a charity sketch written by the sitcom's original creator.

The skit, part of Channel 4's Stand Up To Cancer night on Friday, marks the first appearance of Clunes' Gary and Morrissey's Tony since December 1998.

Written by Simon Nye, it will see the pair discussing testicular cancer.

Will Ferrell, singer Taylor Swift and Sherlock star Martin Freeman will also feature in the live telethon.

Hosted by Davina McCall, Alan Carr and Dr Christian Jessen, the charity evening will seek to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

The first Stand Up to Cancer telethon took place in 2012, drew an audience of 7.8 million and raised £8 million.

An image from the Men Behaving Badly sketch shows Morrissey and Clunes pictured next to dolls bearing the faces of former co-stars Leslie Ash and Caroline Quentin.
