‘Comic Relief Does The Apprentice’ Returns With A Spectacular Cast

Published

on

Debuting in 2007, Comic Relief Does The Apprentice shows some love towards the Comic Relief charity. The last one took place in 2009, and many people might’ve forgotten about it. If you remember, the first installment was a reality TV show filmed in Britain, with the goal of raising money for a good cause. Fortunately, it returns a decade later with a slew of new faces.

Let’s Hear It For The Boys

The 2019 installment will include two teams of five men and women battling to become champions. The men’s side includes a mixture of sports and entertainment figures. When it comes to laughs, comedians Omid Djalili and Russell Kane will tickle everyone’s funny bone. Kane previously competed in Celebrity Mastermind back in 2011.

Many people will recognize television presenters, Richard Arnold and Rylan Clark-Neal. Arnold has hosted numerous shows, including Soapstar Superchef and Take It or Leave It. In 2012, he finished in ninth place in the dance contest show Strictly Come Dancing. Clark-Neal, who’s a presenter on The One Show, is also no stranger to reality shows. In 2013, he won Celebrity Big Brother. Clark-Neal would go on to be a presenter for various Big Brother programming. Sam Allardyce is best known for his near 50-year stint as a football player and manager. Someone with a vast knowledge of managing can be very vital for this team.

It’s Ladies Night

The ladies’ side features people that are also familiar with reality competitions. Amanda Holden is best known for her stint as a judge on Britain’s Got Talent. Ayda Field has been a judge on the British installment of The X Factor since last year. Interior designer Kelly Hoppen was a judge on The Great Interior Design Challenge.

Last year, journalist Rachel Johnson made her reality show debut in Celebrity Big Brother. Known for her work on EastEnders, Tameka Empson also competed on Strictly Come Dancing. 

For A Good Cause

The show will find the contestants raising money for Red Nose Day, which takes place on March 15. The team that raises the most money through a cabaret night will be the winners. Much like the U.K. installment of The Apprentice, Lord Sugar will be judging them carefully.

BBC

Comic Relief Does The Apprentice will debut on March 7 and 8 via BBC One.
