Line of Duty: Sport Relief Special

Mother of God! DS Arnott, DI Fleming and Superintendent Hastings are back and only interested in one thing, catching bent coppers.

In an exclusive ‘deleted’ scene from series five, all three can be seen interrogating DC Taylor, an accused corrupt copper (played by Jason Isaacs) who they suspect knows the identity of the real ‘H’.

Unfortunately for DC Taylor, his representation comes in the form of ineffective lawyer David Rickman (played by Lee Mack).

All-Star Netball for Sport Relief

Two teams of celebrity players and sporting legends came together last summer to battle it out in the first ever All-Star Netball for Sport Relief. Carrying out a childhood dream of lifting a sporting trophy, huge netball fan and comedy legend Jennifer Saunders captained one of the all-star teams. She faced tough competition from a team led by Strictly Come Dancing’s Oti Mabuse, who grew up playing netball in South Africa.

These are only some of the highlights as famous faces come together for sketches and live moments which see them being pushed out of their comfort zones to help raise money to tackle issues such as mental health stigma, domestic abuse, homelessness and child poverty, both in the UK and around the world.

Hosting the live show will be newcomers Alex Scott, Oti Mabuse, Emma Willis, Tom Allen, Maya Jama and Rylan Clark-Neal as they join Gary Lineker and Paddy McGuinness for an evening filled with fun and fundraising.

Throughout the night, there will be a look into how money raised through Sport Relief can help vulnerable people in the UK and across the world live happier, healthier, safer lives, through a series of appeal films.

Outside the Night of TV, a number of special programmes are sure to whet the appetite; Greg James' Sport Relief Heroes looks back at some of the most inspiring celebrity Sport Relief challenges to date, ‘Sport Relief: The Heat Is On’ follows a team of brave celebrities on a gruelling four-day 100-mile expedition across the Namib Desert, and a 30-minute special looks back at Gareth Thomas’ incredible Tour De Trophy cycling challenge as he cycled 500 miles to deliver the BBC Sports Personality of the Year trophy to 2019 winner Ben Stokes to raise money for Sport Relief.

Make sure you don't miss a minute of what is going to be an incredible night by joining us on Friday 13th March from 7pm on BBC One.
