Dick & Dom visit Irish in aid of Comic Relief
27 February 2005 - http://www.london-irish.com

London Irish is delighted to announce a special recording session for the BBC and Comic Relief at Madejski Stadium, Reading on Sunday 27th February.

At half-time during the match CBBC’s Dick & Dom, presenters of the double BAFTA award winning series "Dick & Dom in da Bungalow," will lead the spectators in the stadium in a special television recording of "The Grunty Song"! The resulting footage will be used as part of a whole week of special ‘Comic Relief in Da Bungalow’ shows in the run up to Red Nose Day on Friday 11 March. There will also be a practice run of the Grunty Song between Brian Kennedy’s performance and before kick off on Sunday.

Announcing the recording session Dick & Dom said: "We’re looking forward to this special recording for Comic Relief. Persuading everyone to stay in their seats at half-time will be quite a challenge, however, we understand we will have the help of a special mascot that is known to hang around the stadium on match days!" Digger the wolfhound is expected to put in an appearance – try keeping him away!

CBBC are running a special competition for the two most enthusiastic participants performing The Grunty Song at half time! The two winners will each receive a signed Dick & Dom t-shirt and some other goodies, so make sure to join in at half time!
