Sacha, 49, said in 2007 he was retiring the character as he was becoming too recognisable to fool celebrities in fake interviews.

But while in Australia for much of the pandemic, he “wanted to get on stage and muck around.”

He said: “I just wanted to see what Ali G would be like with a crowd. It was really good fun.”

Sacha introduced the character to our TV screens in 1998.

He later had the nation in stitches with Da Ali G Show, in which he pranked celebs including Donald Trump.

David and Victoria Beckham were also interviewed by him for Red Nose Day in 2001.

Cambridge graduate Sacha, married to Australian actress Isla Fisher, 45, has been living in Sydney since Covid struck.
