A ‘deleted’ Line of Duty scene

Line of Duty fans can get their fix of DS Arnott, DI Fleming and Superintendent Hastings in this Sport Relief special.

The premise of the episode is that it is a ‘deleted scene’ from season five, with all three detectives seen interrogating DC Taylor, an accused corrupt cop played by Jason Isaacs. Arnott, Fleming and Hastings are sure that DC Taylor knows who the real ‘H’ is.

But it’s not just three officers against one, as DC Taylor is given representation to defend him against these allegations. Unfortunately for DC Taylor, this comes in the form of ineffective lawyer, David Rickman, who will be played by comedian Lee Mack.

Killing Eve or Killing Steve?

Hit BBC drama Killing Eve, starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, will also be given the Sport Relief makeover this year.

The special episode will follow a mysterious blonde assassin who is on a killing spree - her targets are those with the first name Steve.

The Sport Relief Special will feature famous Steves from across the UK, including:

Snooker legend Steve DavisCoronation Street favourite Steve McDonaldSporting icons Steve RedgravePresenter and magician Stephen Mulhern

But the real question is - who is Killing Steves?

What else is happening for Sport Relief 2020?

According to the BBC, Sport Relief 2020’s Night of Television “will serve up hilarious sketches giving the Sport Relief take on some of the country’s most loved programmes.”

Gary Lineker and Paddy McGuinness will be joined by the likes of Alex Scott, Oti Mabuse, Emma Willis, Tom Allen, Maya Jama and Rylan Clark-Neal.

As well as the Line of Duty and Killing Eve specials, you can also look forward to watching The Celebrity Boat Race, which will include teams from the BBC, ITV, Channel Four and Sky. A Round with Rom will see comedian Romesh Ranganathan invite Sir Andy Murray to join him on a mini golf course where, unlike regular golf tournaments, the loser will be subjected to personal forfeits.

The BBC said, “These are only some of the highlights as famous faces come together for sketches and live moments which see them being pushed out of their comfort zones to help raise money to tackle issues such as mental health stigma, domestic abuse, homelessness and child poverty, both in the UK and around the world.”

When is Sport Relief 2020 on and where can I watch it?
