Oxfordshire actor Jonathan Bailey joked that appearing in the star-studded The Traitors movie spoof for Comic Relief was 'the proudest moment of my career so far'.

The hit reality game show aired its second season earlier this year, delivering cliffhangers, murders and betrayals.

Fans were able to relive season two all over again with a movie sketch airing during Friday night's (March 15) Comic Relief: Funny for Money on BBC One with Mr Bailey starring as devious winner Harry Clark.

Mr Bailey, who was born in Wallingford and grew up in Benson, is best known for his role as dashing and somewhat scandalous Viscount Anthony Bridgerton in Netflix smash hit Bridgerton.

In the star-studded spoof Suranne Jones played host Claudia Winkleman and David Walliams and Catherine Tate were contestants Paul Gorton and Evie Morrison.

Mr Bailey said: ‘‘Being invited to be in a Comic Relief night of TV sketch is the proudest moment of my career so far.

"On top of that, The Traitors is my all-time favourite TV series - I would be star-struck if I met any one of them.

"I’m sure I am the first in a long line of actors who will play Harry in biopics.

"Actually, I want to take this moment to publicly apologise to Harry for what I’ve done.’’

Mr Clark, a 23-year-old British Army engineer, who won £95,000 in the final, tricked his pal Mollie Pierce into thinking he was on her side when he was actually a traitor.

In the spoof, Mollie, who was playing herself, whacked Mr Bailey with a frying pan.

A delighted fan said on social media: "Worth it for the end alone! Finally justice for @mollie_pearcee."
