Gay comic and television chat show host Graham Norton showcased his role as Albin in La Cage aux Folles on the BBC’s charity fund-raiser Comic Relief.

Norton dragged up to kick-start his segment of Comic Relief.

Despite the recession, the biennial event has surpassed all previous records on fund-raising, at 3:00 am so far raising over £57.8m, greater than the sum raised in 2007.

Controversially, during a comedy sketch about Angus Deayton giving his banking details, he said: “f**k yes” to co-host Davina McCall two hours before the 9pm watershed for bad language and sexual content.

A BBC spokesperson apologised saying: “within any live programme there is a possibility that something can happen that is not planned.”
