BBC Children in Need has announced plans to match Stormzy’s £10m pledge to help combat racial inequality in the UK
The private comedian has kept a low profile after cancelling his live tour in 2017, but he's returning to TV on Thursday for 'The Big Night In'.
The BBC has announced a three hour live broadcast of entertainment and fundraising on Thursday April 23rd.
The annual Children in Need telethon aims to raise money for disadvantaged children across the UK.
Set in New York, the episode sees The Doctor teaming up with a masked superhero and a journalist to stop a deadly alien threat. Almost like a Lois Lane type character, Lucy is surprised to learn that the superhero is real. Until now, there have only been rumours of the existence of a masked vigilante roaming the streets of New York.
This episode will also see the return of Nardole (Matt Lucas), ahead of his role as a recurring guest star throughout series 10. Admittedly, I’ve got some concerns here - Nardole’s previous appearance in The Husbands of River Song was far from a persuasive case that he should join the show full time, and this clip wasn’t exactly a compelling argument either.
It hasn’t been the best of years for poor old Beverley Knight. Beverley was belting out a cover of Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You at the Children In Need Rocks for Terry concert, and apparently gasped and dropped to the floor in the middle of the song. “Medics saw her back stage afterwards and said she had low blood sugar but after 30 minutes she felt much better and they signed her off to perform the number later in the evening - which she did without further issues.” “Unfortunately, Beverley Knight was feeling faint whilst performing on stage at BBC Children In Need Rocks For Terry,” added a BBC spokesperson.
Graham Norton will be leading Children in Need’s star-studded presenting line-up this year – and he’s keen to honour the late Sir Terry Wogan. Strictly Come Dancing presenter Tess Daly, Radio 1 DJ Greg James, Paralympic gold medalist Ade Adepitan, Capital’s Marvin Humes and The Saturdays’ Rochelle Humes, will also join the Irish host. “It is a huge privilege to join the presenting team for the Children in Need Appeal show,” Graham said.
Veteran broadcaster Sir Terry Wogan was laid to rest in a private service earlier this week. Velvet-voiced Terry died after a short battle with cancer on Sunday January 31 aged 77. The BBC said in a statement on Friday: “Sir Terry Wogan’s funeral will take place next week.
Dermot O’Leary has been confirmed as Sir Terry Wogan’s replacement on Children In Need after the iconic fundraiser host was forced to pull out due to health reasons. The BBC confirmed that Dermot would be stepping up the plate in a statement, in which a spokesperson said: “We are pleased to announce that fellow Irishman and Radio 2 presenter Dermot O'Leary will be stepping into Sir Terry Wogan’s shoes for tonight’s Children in Need from 7.30 to 10pm, hosting alongside Tess Daly and Fearne Cotton. “The presenting baton will be picked up by Shane Richie on BBC Two at 10pm, then return to BBC One with Nick Grimshaw and Rochelle Humes from 10.30pm.
Anyways, it turns out that their touchy-touchy photo op is actually for a very good cause, with the boys getting together to show their support for this year’s Children In Need Campaign as they don their best Pudsey the bear t-shirt, which has been designed by Giles Deacon. Other celebs to model the snazzy T-Shirts include Daisy Lowe, Fearne Cotton, Kimberley Walsh, Nadine Coyle and Laura Whitmore, with the stars hoping to raise valuable money for disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. Speaking about the top’s design, Daisy explained: “Giles Deacon never disappoints! He has really outdone himself this year, with not one but two gorgeous t-shirts exclusively for BBC Children in Need.
