In 2017, BBC’S Chil­dren in need ap­peal raised a record £60.7 mil­lion to help dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren around Bri­tain, and this year the show’s pre­sen­ters are hop­ing to top that!

With an all-star pre­sent­ing line-up in­clud­ing Tess Daly, Mel Giedroyc, Gra­ham Nor­ton, Ade Ade­pitan, Rochelle and Marvin Humes plus new ad­di­tion Rob Beck­ett you can ex­pect fun, laugh­ter and the odd tear.

‘I think it’s one of the most spe­cial nights on the BBC,’ says

Mel. ‘It feels like a bril­liant com­ing to­gether of peo­ple and it brings out the best in every­one. It’s also re­ally good fun, with loads of en­ter­tain­ment, and it gen­uinely makes me feel proud to be Bri­tish.’

This Fri­day, from 7.30pm un­til late, we can look for­ward to the usual mu­si­cal ex­trav­a­gan­zas as well as star-stud­ded sketches and lots of TV spe­cials.

‘We hope that we can at least match last year’s to­tal,’ adds Tess. ‘Ev­ery penny that gets pledged on the night gen­uinely makes a dif­fer­ence and there’s so much gen­eros­ity in this coun­try.

‘The money raised helps to make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence to so many young lives across the UK and it’s a huge priv­i­lege be­ing a part of that.’
