Scarlett Moffatt and Rosie Jones are among the women participating in this year’s Comic Opera on Red Nose Day.
omic Opera will be back for a second year and will once again see celebrities transform into opera singers in 24 hours.
This year’s challenge features an all-female lineup, with TV presenter Moffatt, 31, and comedian Jones, 31, joining actors Helen George, Tamzin Outhwaite and Nina Wadia.
“It is a great honor to be a part of Comic Opera for Comic Relief,” Jones said.
“I was extremely scared, I found it very difficult to talk, never mind singing opera.
“I love to sing, though, and I always wear my 80s belt in the bathroom, so that’s for sure…with a few extra clothes.
“Hopefully we can have a lot of fun and raise money for Comic Relief at the same time.”
Celebrities will have 24 hours together to learn the medley of three Aria’s from the opera Carmen, all supported by Comic Relief.
BBC Radio 2 presenter Sara Cox will host the event from the Colosseum and will be on hand to support the women through the ordeal.

Moffatt said: “To be asked to do Comic Opera with the rest of the brilliant women is incredibly exciting.
“I’m scared but totally up for this challenge as I’ve been a fan of Red Nose Day for a long time and the work Comic Relief does is so important, so I really hope this helps. people donate, support, donate.”
Red Nose Day 2022 – hosted by Alesha Dixon, David Tennant, Zoe Ball, Paddy McGuinness and Sir Lenny Henry – will be televised live from MediaCityUK in Salford, Manchester.
