Line Of Duty and Killing Eve set for hilarious Sport Relief specials

Line Of Duty and Killing Eve will join forces with Sport Relief next month for hilarious one-off skits.

While AC12 have been hot on the trail of the mysterious H, in a sketch they will take a break from their interrogations to go head-to-head with newcomer DC Taylor and his half-wit solicitor.

Meanwhile for one night only Killing Eve will be re-branded as Killing Steves, as a slew of the appropriately named male stars are victims of a certain blonde female assassin.

In Line Of Duty's special, DI Kate Fleming, DS Steve Arnott and Supt Ted Hastings will be grilling the 'bent copper' DC Taylor, played by Jason Isaacs.

Killing Eve fans will also be treated to one-off skit, as celebrity Steves, including  snooker Steve Davis and sports legend Steve Redgrave will be comically killed off by a mysterious assassin.

Fans will have to wait and see who is behind the murders, but given the sketch's name, it's likely that Villanelle won't be far from the drama.

The epic feat has seen eight celebrities embarking on a 100-mile trek across the Namib desert, including Frankie Bridge, who shared a snap of herself during the trek's final day on Wednesday.
