Fake That meets Take That

Comedians will delight TV viewers tonight with a spoof Take That tribute band in aid of Comic Relief.

BBC1 viewers will see an all-star comical cast forming 'Fake That' when the charity sketch is aired tonight.

TV personalities Alan Carr, James Corden, David Walliams, Catherine Tate and John Bishop will appear in an audition for a Take That tribute band -- with the real band members at the judges' table.

Attempting to capture the attention of the genuine boy band, the comedians pull out all the stops with complex dance moves and multiple costumes.

Carr plays Mark Owen, Tate is Jason Orange, Corden becomes Gary Barlow and Bishop transforms into Robbie Williams in a bid to get money rolling in for Red Nose Day. Walliams said: "Being in a boy band for the day was really tiring."
