The na­tion’s favourite telethon is back with a glit­ter­ing show, fea­tur­ing: the cast of EastEnders in a mu­si­cal med­ley; the Coun­try­file team cut­ting the rug western-style; and the cast of An­nie on stage, fol­lowed by per­for­mances from three of mu­si­cal theatre’s lead­ing ladies – Am­ber Ri­ley, Bev­er­ley Knight and Cas­sidy Jan­son. In ad­di­tion, six Blue Peter pre­sen­ters from the past 60 years will join forces with the Strictly pro­fes­sional dancers in a bid to win the Pud­sey Glit­ter Ball tro­phy.
