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. Anne Robinson hosts a special edition of The Weakest Link in which seven celebrities work as a team in an attempt to win up to £15,000 for Children in Need. Plus there’s music from Rita Ora, the Vamps, Jason Derulo and the Children’s Choir. To donate, call 0345 733 2233 or visit bbc.co.uk/pudsey. Please give generously.
