Sir Bradley Wiggins will feature alongside Frank Spencer in a one-off special of BBC comedy, Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em, for this year’s Sport Relief.
Michael Crawford says he is "thrilled and delighted" to reprise Frank Spencer, who will also be reunited with his on-screen wife, Betty (Michele Dotrice), for the sketch. According to the BBC Wiggins makes his appearance, before one of Frank’s trademark disasters ensues.
Judging by the last time Spencer was seen near wheeled transport we could be in for a real treat: at the height of his physical comedic powers Crawford, now 74, did all his own stunts, displaying in one particular episode a frankly incredible show of rollerskatesmanship.
Sir Bradley says: "I am a huge fan of Michael so it's an absolute honour to be asked to be involved alongside such an icon of British television... and all for a great cause."
Michael Crawford said: "I am thrilled and delighted to have been asked to bring Frank back".
This will be the latest in a line of BBC appearances for Sir Brad, though the first involving on-screen acting: in 2015 Wiggo edited Radio 4’s Today Programme, while in 2014 he appeared on the Archers to present prizes for Ambridge’s Rough and Tumble Race.
The last episode of Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em aired on Christmas Day in 1978.

Should be fine with the cassette anyway, "Hey, it says for teeth cleaning, it doesn't define what sort of teeth, does it?"
Sure, but will it be a fair test? If they just ask them to spot a cyclist dressed in black not wearing a helmet, at 30 yards, naturally they will...

British Cycling are far more concerned about the culture wars than cycling. Well past their sell-by date.
No doubt, being Bath, the charges will relate to damaging a UNESCO site and nothing to do with motor offences.
Aye! It's tough for drivers oop in t'North. In Lancashire, even the MOT testing garages can't afford MOTs!
Maybe they'll employ some sniffer dogs? Note - it's the City of London rather than being London, the city which would be much better.
I would definitely recommend looking at the hase pino, they do a kit to put kid sized pedals on the front so your child can participate. But unlike...
