Jamie Demetriou is returning as Stath Charalambos for a special Red Nose Day sketch to help raise funds for Comic Relief.


According to the BBC, the skit will see Dermot O’Leary visiting small businesses to see what they are doing to raise money for the charity – with the staff of Michael & Eagle lettings agency up first on his list.

Stath's only fundraising idea is to take Dermot on a sponsored tour of a rented flat, but he does also showcase a brand new song he has written for Comic Relief – titled 'Comic Release' – which stars his sister Sophie (Natasia Demetriou), Katia (Ellie White) and Al (Al Roberts) in addition to some as-yet-unannounced special guest artists.

A statement from Demetriou in character as Stath reads: "I couldn’t feel more pleasant to have met Dernot O’Really in 2023 for Comic Release. His clothes fit on his body perfectly. Thank you X Factor."

It is the latest sketch to be announced for Comic Relief and follows confirmation that Kylie Minogue will be joining the cast of Ghosts for another segment of the popular BBC One sitcom
