Fri­day Chil­dren In Need BBC One

The Herald on Sunday - Sunday Herald Life - - TELEVISION & RADIO -

IT’S that time again, and pre­sen­ters Tess Daly, Ade Ade­pitan, Gra­ham Nor­ton, Mel Giedroyc, Rochelle and Marvin Humes have as­sem­bled to drive the Pud­sey train through the night, with reg­u­lar help from Jackie Bird, hold­ing the fort in Glas­gow. As ever, among the ap­peals and the films re­port­ing on how last year’s money has been spent, the BBC’s char­ity jug­ger­naut of­fers a glitzy night of en­ter­tain­ment in re­turn for your do­na­tions – and it doesn’t get much glitzier than the open­ing se­quence, as the cast of An­nie take to the stage, with Strictly’s very own Craig Revel Hor­wood as Miss Han­ni­gan. As the night un­folds, there’s the oblig­a­tory East­End­ers mu­si­cal sec­tion; the pre­sen­ters of Coun­try­file go­ing a lit­tle more coun­try than usual; a spe­cial edi­tion of Strictly which will see six for­mer Blue Peter pre­sen­ters vy­ing for the glit­ter­ball; and a re­turn for The Weak­est Link, as Anne Robin­son pops the ques­tions to a team of celebri­ties. Else­where, among a ton of other stuff, Joanna Lum­ley will be pre­sent­ing the award for The Sir Terry Wo­gan Fundraiser Of The Year.
