Little Britain meets 'the Menace'

Little Britain's Lou and Andy have come face to face with Dennis the Menace - in aid of Comic Relief.
The pair, played in the sketch show by David Walliams and Matt Lucas, end up in the middle of a talent show with the stripy-jumpered tearaway from the Beano comic.
Walliams, who swam the English Channel and took part in an epic cycle ride in previous fundraising efforts, said: "I've said yes to a lot of things in the name of Red Nose Day but this was by far the least painful."
He continued: "No swimming cap, no cycling shorts, I didn't even have to pick up a pencil - the Beano team did all the work. Lou and Andy have now fulfilled every boy's childhood dream - to hang out with Dennis the Menace in Beano Town. I can't wait to see who was a bigger menace, Dennis or Andy."
Dennis, and his sidekick Gnasher, have been menacing in the pages of the Beano since 1951.
Singer Alexandra Burke, former Spice Girl Emma Bunton and Jedward also appear in the special edition of the BeanoMAX magazine.
