Jo Brand plays it for laughs in Britney-themed charity dance

17 FEBRUARY 2009
Saucy red tights, mini-skirt and tummy-baring shirt at the ready this is Jo Brand doing her bit for Comic Relief. The comedienne donned Britney Spears' racy uniform from Baby One More Time to promote new Saturday night show Let's Dance.

In the BBC1 programme the likes of presenters Anthea Turner and Tim Vincent will pay homage to famous dance routines and vie to be crowned champion of the dancefloor.

Jo, this week's Radio Times covergirl, told the magazine she picked the routine herself.

"It is my favourite... And more to the point, I couldn't really see myself in a red shiny jumpsuit doing Oops!... I Did It Again," she quipped, referring to another of the Louisiana star's famous hits. "That would have been too Michelin Man for words."

Every week viewers will be asked to vote for their favourite acts to go through, culminating in a grand finale on March 14, Red Nose Day.
