Children in Need is returning to our TV screens once again this Friday, 15th November, on BBC One at 7:30pm.

The show is set to feature a variety of live music performances – from artists and West End shows – as well as a Strictly Come Dancing special, and a stop off in time and space with Doctor Who.

Both celebrities and members of the public have been taking part in activities to raise money for the cause over the last few weeks.

Highlights include The One Show’s Rickshaw challenge, the Got It Covered album, and Rylan Clark Neal’s 24-hour karaoke challenge which, by itself, raised over £1 million.

Stores on the high street have been doing their bit too, with Boots selling Pudsey ears, soft toys, pin badges and wristbands. Others helping out include Greggs, Asda and Costco. Check out the official store here.
