James Corden is one of the brains behind 'Gavin & Stacey'. (Although from what I hear about his new sketch comedy show with castmate Matthew Horne, maybe Ruth Jones was in charge of that department.....) Not only did he co-write the series, but he played Gav's best mate, Smithie. And now with a third series gearing up, Smithie has added a new venue, which puts him two-thirds of the way towards qualifying for entry into the TV Crossover Hall of Fame.

In a sketch for the UK's Comic Relief telethon, Smithie is working on the pipes at a very posh hotel where he stumbles on a group meeting of England's football squad. Among those in attendance were Rion Ferdinand, John Terry, Frank Lampard, Peter Crouch, and Becks himself, David Beckham.When Smithie walked in on them, he couldn't help but take advantage of the situation and tell each of them where they were going wrong in their performance, and even how to properly perform "the Robot" after a goal.
The sketch may be available on YouTube, but I saw it on the Daily Mirror site. And a big thanks to Rob of "The Medium Is Not Enough" (link to the left, you lot!) for pointing me in the right direction....
