N all-star pre­sent­ing line up, an un­for­get­table night of en­ter­tain­ment and mil­lions of pounds raised for char­ity: it’s time for BBC Chil­dren In Need 2018.

More than 2,500 projects help­ing chil­dren in com­mu­ni­ties across the UK are sup­ported by the char­ity, which aims to help young peo­ple fac­ing a range of disad­van­tages, whether it be poverty, dis­abil­ity or ill health, or ex­pe­ri­enc­ing dis­tress, ne­glect or trauma.

The ap­peal show, first broad­cast in 1980, al­ways makes for an amaz­ing night of tele­vi­sion – all with the help of Pud­sey Bear of course.

For Gra­ham Nor­ton, some of the things he most en­joys about the night in­clude “the chance to hang out with Mel Giedroyc, who is a joy” and “the other is be­ing able to see th­ese sto­ries of peo­ple who are helped by BBC Chil­dren In Need – that is al­ways a high­light”.

He adds: “There aren’t many things that unify this great coun­try, but I do think BBC Chil­dren In Need is one of them.”

Here, we chat to all of the pre­sen­ters to find out what’s in store this year.
