Pop stars One Direction, Jessie J and Olly Murs have followed in A-ha’s footsteps by ‘cartoonifying’ themselves – this time for a Red Nose Day special edition of BeanoMAX magazine.

The boy band grace the comic’s pages for the 25th Anniversary of the charity event, much to the delight of One Direction who said: “We've grown up with the magazine so now to actually appear in it with Dennis and Gnasher themselves is incredible."

Also materialising on page for the first time is ex Time Lord David Tennant who has teamed up with the menagerie of stars to appear in a specially penned story alongside Beano stalwarts Dennis the Menace and Minnie the Minx.

Mike Stirling, editor-in-chief of The Beano and BeanoMax, said: "It was brilliant fun imagining how Jessie, Olly, David and 1D would interact with our mischievous characters and I hope they enjoy the results as much our readers and their fans will."

The Red Nose Day special edition will be guest edited by comedian Harry Hill and goes on sale on March 6.
