New Planet Hollywood headliner Britney Spears stuns with a very “propuh” British accent in an episode of the hit British TV series “Surprise, Surprise” that airs today in my old home country.

The Christmas special salutes the U.K.’s most extraordinary people with the most unexpected surprises. As host Holly Willoughby explains, it’s for “those who do so much for others and expect nothing in return.”

Dressed in a very smart hotel butler’s suit, Britney serves an afternoon tea of scones and jam at the Savoy Hotel to unsuspecting James Colburn, Britney’s No. 1 British fan, who was nominated by his sister Sadie for caring for her twin sons diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy after premature birth at 26 weeks.

Singers Cher and Michael Buble take part in other surprises, but it’s Britney’s appearance as a confident butler that is the standout segment.
