Catherine Tate is to reunite with James Bond megastar Daniel Craig for a comedy skit on Comic Relief this Friday.
The comedian, 51, will serve up her infamous portrayal of Nan, as she meets the 007 actor, when she picks up a part-time cleaning gig at the Secret Intelligence Service headquarters.
It’s been 12 years since the duo first joined forces for the charity, as her unlucky-in-love character Elaine Figgis forged a romance with the spy.
After foul-mouthed Nan bumps into the commander, Bond finds himself answering awkward questions during his security briefing.
On their collaboration, actress and comedienne Catherine said, ‘Nan had a right old time meeting Bond. What a smashing fella.”
“As ever, it was great fun filming this Comic Relief sketch, huge thanks to Daniel and all the Bond team for being such great sports. I hope it raises lots of money.”
James Bond’s No Time To Die has seen a great number of delays, meaning fans are still left waiting to see the latest movie in the franchise.
A new date for the movie was shared via the film’s official Twitter handle, revealing that the expected release date is now October 8, 2021. Definitely something to wind down with after what looks to be a busy summer out and about!
The movie was previously scheduled for release on the 2nd April, after already being hit by several changes due to uncontrollable circumstances, particularly the coronavirus pandemic.
Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the film was originally scheduled for release in April 2020, but was pushed back to November before the release was changed once again to April 2021.
No Time To Die is the 25th film in the 007 series, and sets the scene with Bond after he has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica when his old friend Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) from the CIA turns up asking for his help.
Leaving his seemingly joyous life with Madeleine (Lea Seydoux), the protagonist returns to the field to face Safin (Rami Malek), tasked with disarming with a new dangerous technology that could be catastrophic to the world.
