Ade Edmondson a 'bald, bespectacled swan' in tights
Stand down, Natalie Portman - alternative comedian Ade Edmondson has taken to the stage to prove it's not just girls who can do ballet.

Together with pop stars Chesney Hawkes, Limahl and Toyah, the 54-year-old Young Ones star pulled on his tights, tutu and ballet shoes to give a heartwarming rendition of Swan Lake on Let's Dance for Comic Relief.

Judge John Bishop was delighted with the performance, saying: "I thought it was beautiful - the poise, the grace, the elegance.

"It was like seeing a real life bald swan with glasses."

The dance was topped off with a trademark bop on the head with a frying pan from Edmondson's comedy partner Rik Mayall.

Comedian Marcus Brigstocke also put in a turn on the show, dressing in a karate outfit for Carl Douglas' Kung Fu Fighting.
