Waterloo Road raise the roof for Comic Relief – eighties style
The cast of Waterloo Road have recreated famous eighties high school scenes from the Breakfast Club and Dead Poets Society at their Greenock studios in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Red Nose Day.
Swapping their uniforms for Red Nose Day T-shirts and Red Noses the loveable characters, including the Barry family, high school couple Imogen and Connor and teachers went back in time for Comic Relief to inspire people around the UK to do something funny for money.
The cast of Waterloo Road said:
“We’ve had so much fun today and whatever you’re age you’re definitely not too cool for school! We strongly urge you to do something funny for money and get fundraising this Red Nose Day, Friday 15th March.”
“Show off your talents by singing a song, host an eighties dress up like us, bake that cake or brainwave a wacky and weird challenge, just have fun and raise lots of money. It’s the cash you raise this Red Nose Day that will help to change the lives of poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged people living across the UK and in Africa.”
Taking time out from their lessons eighties wannabes Connor, Jack, Barry and Kevin happily jumped on top of their desks striking a moody pose reminiscent of Dead Poets Society. Imogen and Dynasty snuck out of their classroom to join them in the corridors to recreate the iconic Breakfast Club pose.
Getting in on the act head teacher Michael Bryne and his staff, English teacher Christine Mulgrew and new French teacher George Windsor played by Angus Deayton showed their humorous sides by balancing on their pupil’s tables with a Red Nose and a smile.
