Ulrika shows true Brit.

Byline: SUSIE BONIFACE

BRIT me baby one more time... it's Ulrika Jonsson and her Shooting Stars chums dressed as schoolgirls.

The stars of BBC2's surreal comedy quiz put on pleated skirts, tight shirts and knee-socks for a mickey-take of the video for Britney Spears' Hit Me Baby (One More Time) - the song which shot the US pop babe to fame.

While a very raunchy Ulrika looks great in her Britney role, her co-stars are less convincing as sexy schoolgirl sidekicks. Comic Vic drapes himself across a school locker while co-host Bob Mortimer joins regulars Will Self and Matt Lucas - alias drummer George Dawes - to gyrate behind Ulrika.

But the four men look so comically ill-suited to their roles that viewers could be forgiven for echoing the opening lines of Britney's song: Oh baby, baby / How was I supposed to know / That something wasn't right here...

The scene will be shown in the new series of Shooting

CAPTION(S):

TOUCH OF CLASS: Ulrika's fine as Britney.. but Vic, Bob, Matt and Will make hilariously ugly schoolgirls; SEXY: The original Britney Spears video; UNSEXY: Vic puts the boot in
