Bor 'King' : Lenny Henry wants your cash

Today saw the 'cream' of the self obsessed and self styled comedy greats gather today at the foot of London Landmark 'British Airways London Eye' where staff were on strike today.

Amongst the assembled ranks were supporters from reality show winners to Pop contest successfuls. Lenny Henry has once again muscled himself forward as spokesman for the fundraising Behemoth that is Comic Relief.

When asked how this years charity marathon will differ from previous years, Henry, utilising one of his most hackneyed of characters, Theopolis D Wildebeast stated, "Baby, my Comic Relief will make your eyes water...oh yeah...Know what I' sayin?"

A twist in this year's event, which is being produced by Endemol, will see the public not only being able to pledge money but to be able to 'evict' boring 'has been' celebs from the TV screen. The concern is that this could result in Jack Dee being left to anchor the show for some 15 hours should the likes of Henry, Fry and Laurie not be to the public's taste. Needless to say Loudmouth Davina will preside over the evictions.

A source has revealed that there are plans for a televised public Trial of the three most controversial Big Brother contestants as a feature of the proceedings on the night, the culmination of which will see the 'convicted' run the gauntlet through Tower Hamlets dressed in a Burka - not to mention a big red nose. Viewers will be able to vote for a verdict via the Comic Relief premium rate phone lines.

Lenny Henry would not comment on his fee for the event but it is rumoured to be in the region of a 15% cut plus the contract for distribution of aid in Africa through his logistics firm 'Truckin' Funny'.

See TV listings for details of alternative programmes on at the same time.
