The two ladies will be wearing flared cat suits to recreate a scene from Mamma Mia! the hit musical and movie starring Meryl Streep, Julie Walters and Pierce Brosnan.
"I went to see the film with my seven-year-old daughter Mia and we absolutely loved it," the Telegraph quoted Bruce as saying. "For our television tribute, I'm probably playing the Meryl Streep role. We will also have three senior newsmen taking part and some dancers from the West End show. We didn't set out to look like the two Abba women but I am flattered that anyone would think I resembled Frida. I was a great Abba fan and she was my favourite," she added.
Kate Silverton another BBC presenter was supposed to join them, but was forced to pull out when she suffered a slipped disc during rehearsals, and BBC organizers are now trying to find a replacement. "I am certainly no dancing queen. Thankfully we have very simple steps to do but there's still a danger one of us could stumble and fall of these skyscraper platforms," Raworth added.
