Comic Relief's funniest moments from the Beckhams meeting Ali G to James Corden's original carpool karaoke

COMIC Relief never fails to make us laugh each year with its hilarious sketches, performances, and surprise guest appearances.

And it's finally back tonight with The Vicar of Dibley, Top Gear, and the likes of Marcella's Anna Friel and actress Keira Knightley starring in the "greatest disaster movie never made".

Normal People fans are also in for a treat as hunk Paul Mescal and co-star Daisy Edgar-Jones are due to make an appearance too.

The British charity, which raises money to try and put an end to poverty, has managed to get some pretty important people to take part in the show over the years.

The show, which has been on our screens since 1988, is known for its hilarious sketches – so let's have a look at some of the ones that have stood out over the years…

James Corden's original carpool karaoke with George Michael

One of the most memorable sketches from the show happened 10 years ago.

Smithy and Friends (2011) was only 13 minutes long – but in that time A LOT happened.

James Corden took on the role of his Gavin and Stacey alter-ego Smithy and tried to round up a number of celebs to take part in the show for Lenny Henry and Richard Curtis.

The much-loved character got chatting to Justin Bieber, Prime Minister at the time Gordon Brown, the England football team players and even Keira Knightley.

But one of the most memorable moments was him singing in the car with George Michael – which marked the very start of his carpool karaoke in the US.

The Beckhams getting a grilling from Ali G

Back in 2001 everyone was left in stitches when Ali G met David and Victoria Beckham.

The couple were rinsed by the satirical fictional character (played by Sacha Baron Cohen) from the moment they stepped on stage.

Ali took the mick out of David's "silly" voice, asked some very inappropriate questions including where Victoria conceived her eldest son Brooklyn and whether she enjoys anal sex.

Lauren Cooper vs Tony Blair

Fourteen years ago Catherine Tate's Lauren Cooper came face to face with Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The schoolgirl has made various appearances on the show, but this stands out as one of the funniest.

Lauren managed to bag herself work experience at Number 10 and annoyed everyone from the get go.

After asking the Prime Minister her iconic saying several times, he simply snapped back: “Lauren, am I bovvered?”

Mr Bean goes on Blind Date

Mr Bean (Rowan Atkinson) has starred in Comic Relief plenty of times, but when he took part in Cilla Black's Blind Date in 1993, viewers were left crying with laughter.

He is somehow picked for a date by the beautiful Tracy and the sketch follows them on their date – a night in an English country hotel – and I bet you can figure out what happens…

Graham Norton and Borat

Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has made the list again – but this time as Borat.

His awkward greeting – "I like you, I like sex" – to host Graham set the mood for the rest of the chat.

He mentioned a number of cheeky things to Graham including talking about blow jobs and human pubes.

Mumma Mia

Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders and Sienna Miller and Joanna Lumley joined forces to create their own version of the 2008 blockbuster, a year after it hit our screens.

The sketch is full of Abba Songs and your favourite comedians – what more could you want?

Harry Potter and the Secret Chamberpot of Azerbaijan

French and Saunders created a hilarious spoot of the second J.K Rowling book in 2003.

Dawn French played herself, Jennifer Saunders played herself, while they got Ronny Corbett to act as Hagrid and Basil Brush as Dobby.

David Walliams' exes 

This hilarious sketch saw David Walliams getting examined at the sexual health clinic by TV doctor Christian Jessen.

After pulling his pants up the star was told it "wasn't great" and had to put on some cream to sort out his problem down below.

He was told to contact every person he had been intimate with over the year…

David paid a lovely visit to a number of famous faces including Kate Moss, The Chuckle Brothers, Alan Carr, Ronnie Corbett, Frank Lampard, Bruno Tonioli, Len Goodman and David Schwimmer.

Watch Comic Relief 2021 tonight on BBC One from 7.00pm.
