THE comedic duo is bringing Rock Profile back in a new Comic Relief segment for the return of Red Nose Day 2022.
Just as they're getting ready to channel some of music's biggest names, Matt Lucas left little to the imagination during a tribute to Miley Cyrus.
From 1999 to 2009, Matt and his accomplice David Walliams played musicians from Gary Barlow to Michael Jackson in spoof interviews.
In honour of Red Nose Day 2022, the iconic duo – known to have dominated the British TV comedy scene for years – have decided to reiterate for a Rock Profile revival.
Thirteen years after its last episode, David and Matt are bringing their comedy show just for the annual charity special.
This time, the pair are going for pop stars in the likes of Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga.
A recently revealed promo picture shows Matt ready to bare all in a tight silver hot pants and the earrings to match as he pays homage to the Wrecking Ball singer.

Meanwhile, David has opted for a tone-down attire as he slips into the skin of Miley's country singer father, Billy Ray Cyrus.
"It’s been really fun giving the Rock Profile treatment to a host of stars who weren’t even twinkles in our eyes when we first did the show nearly 25 years ago", David said when questioned about the revival.

David added: "I can’t wait for everyone to see our brand-new characters."
While TV presenter Jamie Theakston was picked to play the role of the interviewer in Rock Profile's first two seasons, a new host is set to take his place for the reboot.
I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here star Vernon Kay will be part of the Rock Profile revival.
"Thankfully I will be playing myself in Rock Profile, so I’ll be saving David or Matt the embarrassment of attempting my accent", he said.
The Rock Profile reboot also symbolises David and Matt's reunion after numerous rifts left them not speaking to one another for years.
The pair reportedly got back in touch in 2019 after a decade of silence to work on Little Britain spin-off Little Brexit.
