The sketch will see Frank land himself in a few of his usual comedy disasters, culminating in a meeting with Olympic cyclist Sir Bradley Wiggins at the cycling centre in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London.
Michael said: “I am thrilled and delighted to have been asked to bring Frank back for Sport Relief.”
Michele said it would be an 'absolute joy to be reunited again with Frank' and that it was fitting 'for it is such a wonderful cause'.
Sir Bradley said: “I am a huge fan of Michael so it’s an absolute honour to be asked to be involved alongside such an icon of British television … and all for a great cause!”
