and Katie Price have been named as the first two acts to reach this year's Let's Dance For Comic Relief
Comedian Kane received the most public votes for his performance of Beyoncé's 'Crazy In Love', leading him to declare that the honour was "more of a punishment, really".
Price was put through by judges Frank Skinner and Graham Norton, after finishing in the top three with Waterloo Road
's Rebecca Ryan and Philip Martin-Brown.
Reflecting on the model's rendition of 'I Want To Break Free' by Queen, complete with Freddie Mercury-style fake moustache and armpit hair, and the school drama stars' take on Run DMC's 'It's Like That', Norton said that he was faced with "a dancing Sophie's Choice
", before declaring that Price had "earned her place" in the final.
Skinner agreed, saying: "I thought Katie was marvellous, so it's got to be her."
Design duo Colin and Justin's performance of 'Xanadu' failed to inspire viewers, along with Ed Byrne's 'We Love To Boogie' and Rebecca Front's turn as Bjork in 'It's Oh So Quiet'. Kane reprised his Beyoncé dance routine to conclude the show.
The Let's Dance For Comic Relief
final will be shown on March 12.
