HAWKING JOINS RED N SE DAY
SCIENCE boffin Professor Stephen Hawking will join a host of top entertainers, including Ed Sheeran and comic duo French and Saunders, to help promote Red Nose Day.
Professor Hawking, 75, voices a special Red Nose character, Nose-it-All, on a comic strip game, along with Warwick Davies, Hugh Dennis and Sir Lenny Henry, which is now online.
Hawking joked: “I’m a world-renowned scientist who has shaped our understanding of the universe and I am being asked to make snot jokes.
“I must really like this charity!”
Comics Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders will be among those helping to present the night itself, along with Sir Lenny, on BBC1 on March 24.
