BBC Children in Need 2012
BBC Children in Need returns later this month – and there will be dancing !
Sir Terry Wogan will be joined by Fearne Cotton, Tess Daly plus Nick Grimshaw to host a bigger than ever, spectacular night of musical entertainment, sketches, special features, glitz, glamour and guest appearances.
Around twenty of Britain’s Olympic and Paralympic heroes including Tom Daley, Rebecca Adlington, Louis Smith, David Weir, Nicola Adams and Ellie Simmonds will be throwing shapes in their very own music video set to Basement Jaxx’s ‘Do Your Thing’ – including a special section featuring members of the 3 Day Eventing team; Zara Phillips, Nicola Wilson and Tina Cook dancing ‘Gangnam Style’.
Strictly Come Dancing viewers’ favourites Ann Widdecombe and Russell Grant will return to the dance floor on a wing and a prayer for an unmissable performance with their partners Anton Du Beke and Flavia Cacace.
Sir Terry Wogan, BBC Children in Need Life President, says: “BBC Children in Need as ever is graced by the presence of lovely ladies Tess and Fearne, and this year I’ll be delighted to welcome Radio 1’s morning star, Nick Grimshaw, to prop me up as the Friday appeal stretches into Saturday, and we head for what we hope will be another record-breaking total for the people’s charity. Every year of BBC Children in Need is a shining tribute to the extraordinary generosity of the British people.”
Children in Need is on BBC One on Friday 16th November
