Star of The Simpsons and the granddaddy of all mock-umentaries, This is Spinal Tap, Harry Shearer, will be appearing on Celebrity Mastermind on Wednesday 31 December (6.35pm) to raise money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

Harry has been doing voice work in The Simpsons for more than two decades where he plays the characters: Mr Burns, Smithers, Reverend Lovejoy, Principal Skinner and insufferable neighbour Ned Flanders to name a few.

He chose to fundraise for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research after his first wife's brother died of leukaemia, and two of his friends have had, and thankfully recovered from, non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Harry's challengers were actor and writer Steve Pemberton, presenter Kate Thornton and comedian Tony Law. Don’t forget to tune in to BBC1 to see how he gets on!
