The Vicar of Dibley : Comic Relief

The final, final appearance of the Vicar of Dibley was a short sketch shown on BBC One on Red Nose Day, 16th March 2007.

The Vicar and her new husband, Harry, take part in Celebrity-Nonentity Wife Swap with Sting and his wife Trudi Styler. Harry says he's always quite fancied Trudi Styler. "I know," replies Geraldine as she sends him off to Trudi, "that's why you're wearing extremely ugly clothes."

For someone who has only just got married, she seems absurdly excited to be spending a week "married" to Sting. But by the end of the week, she is less keen on him, and she's happy to have Harry back - although Trudi reports that she and Harry got on like a house on fire.

Red Nose Day is the culmination of Comic Relief, a massive fundraising effort that takes place in the UK every two years and involves many top British comedians. It takes over BBC One for a whole evening, and includes sketches and special editions of popular programmes, hence the Vicar of Dibley sketch.

"I've always quite fancied Trudi Styler."
"I know, that's why you're wearing extremely ugly clothes."
Geraldine sends Harry off to spend the week with Trudi.

At the end of the week, Harry and Trudi return.

"So, how did it go with you two?"

"We got on like a house on fire!"

"Didn't we, sweet cheeks?"

"Absolutely adore him!"

Geraldine's not happy about that....

Now she's happy...

...but Harry's worried.
