Mel and Sue are back on your TV in the first trailer for Let's Sing and Dance for Comic Relief

Plus, Miranda Hart signs up!

Mel & Sue show off their dancing skills in the first trailer for Let's Sing and Dance for Comic Relief.

Well, when we say dancing skills, we mean Morris dancing (if that counts?), and as cringe as it looks Mel & Sue are so amazing that we bet they could carry it off if they competed properly.

The pair host the series, which has been extended to including singing this year, and going by the confirmed lineup we should be in for a treat and a half, with Miranda Hart the latest to sign up.

Also taking part are Julian Clary, Tameka Empson, Rufus Hound, Russell Kane and Adil Ray as Citizen Khan.

Even more excitingly, it will showcase a brand new boyband called Boys Allowed consisting of Blue and Hollyoaks star Duncan James, Ritchie Neville from 5ive, Pop Idol runner-up Gareth Gates, Ben Ofoedu from Phats & Small and S Club singer Jon Lee.

On top of that, Matt Edmondson will perform Nicki Minaj's 'Super Bass', and he recently told Digital Spy that he will be revealing his "superb ass to the nation".

"I can't sing, and I can't dance, so doing Let's Sing and Dance for Comic Relief is purely a chance for me to get a photo for my Facebook profile with [hosts] Mel & Sue," he said.

Jo Brand, Jason Manford, Paul O'Grady, Frank Skinner, Jennifer Saunders and Claudia Winkleman have all been announced as judges for the show, which will feature three live heats leading up to a grand finale.
