Friday 16 March: The beloved Brockman siblings from hit TV show, Outnumbered, have reunited fourteen years on from the first Outnumbered Red Nose Day special to show their support for Red Nose Day, which returns on Friday 15 March.

Daniel Roche, Ramona Marquez and Tyger Drew-Honey who played Ben, Karen and Jake in the popular sitcom, which brought joy to screens across the nation between 2007 and 2014, have come back together to try out this year’s brand-new Red Noses.

Guaranteed to raise smiles as well as life-changing money, the new plant-based Red Nose range is available now on Amazon(opens in new window) with free One-Day Delivery for all customers. They can also be purchased from Amazon Fresh stores and Whole Foods Market.

This year’s Red Noses promise to be the funniest bunch yet as for the first time they tell jokes. Each Nose comes with a QR code that takes you to the Red Nose Day Joke Generator, in collaboration with Amazon Web Service (AWS), which reels off joke after joke to make you smile.

There are four fun characters to collect as well as a limited edition rare ‘Gold’ Nose, all of which can be recycled at home for the very first time. The new Noses are made from entirely plant-based material including bagasse and are the most sustainable yet.

The new Red Noses certainly got the seal of approval from the Outnumbered cast who spent the afternoon snapping selfies and reminiscing about their favourite memories of past Red Nose Days.

The on-screen siblings have been supporters of Comic Relief ever since they starred in the show together. Over the years, the Brockman children have been part of iconic sketches, including one where Daniel’s character, Ben, has a run-in with Wimbledon champion Andy Murray and ends up giving him advice on his technique. Another iconic sketch saw Ramona’s on-screen Mum, played by Claire Skinner, attempting to persuade the stubborn six-year-old not to wear her bridesmaid dress to school for Red Nose Day.

Tyger Drew-Honey, who played Jake in the series, recounted his memories of Red Nose Day, saying: “I have special memories of Red Nose Day, especially our days spent filming the Red Nose Day specials. I was a little bit older than the others, so I had more of an idea of the concept of what Red Nose Day was. I could appreciate it was a really good cause and that we were doing something that was really helping people whilst putting a smile on people’s faces.

"Getting back together to honour this year’s Red Nose Day was such good fun, and whilst this year we’re not causing chaos on British TV screens, we were able to try on the new Noses and snap a few photos."

Daniel Roche, who played Ben, added: “We were really lucky to have been a part of the Outnumbered Red Nose Day specials, I don’t think we appreciated just how big of a deal it was and how many people we could help by being involved. I will always remember meeting Andy Murray and how friendly and patient he was when I was peppering him with questions and tennis advice! Twelve years on from our last special, it‘s great to be back together to make some more Red Nose Day memories, help to raise some funds and have a laugh!"

Ramona Marquez, who was only seven-years-old when the first Red Nose Day special was filmed, said: “I always remember the Red Nose Day events that we got to go to, they were great. I was really young but I remember all the celebrities coming together for Comic Relief, and I knew it was really cool to be involved in the Red Nose Day specials. I especially liked the specials because I remember that we got to wear our own clothes and at the time, that was a big deal!"

It’s never felt more important to come together to support people in the UK and around the world who are struggling in the face of poverty and injustice. By purchasing a Red Nose to match with the cast of Outnumbered, your donation could help put food on plates and roofs over heads, keep little ones safe and support families affected by climate change.
