Speaking to The Mirror, she revealed that one sketch will reference one of the biggest TV shows of the year.

Dawn said: There’s some ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ in there. We had fun with some of the costumes.”

Discussing her friendship with Jennifer, she added: “The whole double act is an extension of our friendship, which still remains.

“We will be making each other laugh for ever but just not in front of an audience.”
