Big Hair and Beyond
Big hair was the order of the day for the tenth-ever Red Nose Day!
Millions tuned in for the telly extravaganza and saw celebs put their vocal talents to the test on Comic Relief Does Fame Academy, while Rowan Atkinson got his superhero togs on in Spider-Plant Man. Topping it off were some truly unique Little Britain sketches featuring Sir Elton John, George Michael and Robbie Williams, and a special Vicar of Dibley.
Peter Kay and Tony Christie’s masterpiece, Amarillo, was shown for the first time on Red Nose Day live. The single went straight in at No 1 and stayed at the top spot for seven weeks – selling over one million copies and becoming the biggest-selling download single of 2005.
Red Nose Day 2005 raised an incredible £65 million!
