Prince William and Stephen Fry join forces for iconic Big Night In skit

Prince William and Stephen Fry had fans in stitches over their sketch for The Big Night In.

The show, which is in aid of coronavirus relief, has been put together by Comic Relief and Children In Need to raise money and keep people entertained during the lockdown.

During the unexpected exchange, the Duke of Cambridge told Stephen that homeschooling his children had proved ‘a bit of a nightmare, really’.

He added: ‘By the way, have you seen anything good on TV? It’s hell without EastEnders.’

When Stephen suggested Tiger King, Prince William pointed out that he ‘tends to avoid shows about royalty’.

The Royal Family and Joe Exotic is truly the crossover we never knew we needed.

Before getting up to take part in the clap for carers, he said: ‘On my way, let me just see if I can find my socks, and my shoes, and my trousers.’

The Duke was then seen clapping with his family as the round of applause for carers began.

Viewers loved the sketch, with one writing: ‘Prince William’s sketch with Stephen Fry AKA Lord Melchett. Honestly this is really funny!’

Another added: ‘Prince William saying ‘It’s hell without #EastEnders’ on National telly is a MOOD.’

‘Brilliant and great to see the humour from the wonderful Prince William,’ another said.

Elsewhere on the show, Catherine Tate and David Tennant joined forces once again for a Lauren Cooper skit, with the comedian causing fans to crack up over a Doctor Who reference.

Peter Kay made his TV return in style, with a rendition of his hit (Is This The Way To) Amarillo, while Dawn French revived The Vicar Of Dibley for a hilarious sketch.

The Big Night In brought together comedians, musicians and actors to help raise money for charity.

The programme was a joint effort from Children In Need and Comic Relief – who have teamed up for the first time to help charities and projects around the UK, during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Big Night In is available to watch on catch-up on BBC iPlayer.
