The amusing one-off was screened tonight on the annual BBC One fundraiser
The BBC in collaboration with Disney and Lucasfilm produced a special one-off Star Wars sketch tonight in aid of the annual children’s charity fundraiser, Children In Need.
The seven-minute clip was packed with famous faces and followed Star Wars actor Warwick Davis, along with iconic characters R2-D2 and C-3PO, on a quest to find a Star Wars “superfan”.
Along the way the trio were met with the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Barbara Windsor and Martin Freeman all claiming to be superfans and requesting to “push the totaliser button”.
Other stars hindering the mission included Olympic diver Tom Daley, Will.I.Am, Danny Dyer, Lord Alan Sugar, The Stig, Mel and Sue, Stephen Merchant and Ricky Wilson.
Even former Children In Need host Terry Wogan made a guest appearance.

Due to health issues, this year marked the first time that Wogan hasn’t presented the broadcast since it began in 1980. Former X Factor presenter Dermot O’Leary co-hosted instead with Fearne Cotton and Tess Daly.
Hamilton, who is among the first celebrities to guest in the sketch, said of his involvemnt: “It’s always a real privilege to be part of the BBC Children In Need campaign because I think the work they do is fantastic – kids are the future and that’s why I love to be a part of it.”
