The BBC has announced “everything you need to know” about this year’s Children in Need.
Broadcast live from dock10’s HQ1 studios, the 3 hour show will be presented by Jason Manford, Ade Adepitan MBE, Alex Scott MBE, Chris Ramsey, Lenny Rush and Mel Giedroyc.
Among the highlights are:
A special-one off Doctor Who scene starring the fourteenth Doctor, David Tennant.
A parody of Race Across the World as 3 pair of TV characters Race Across Yorkshire and meet a number of Yorkshire icons along the way as they head for Pudsey.
MasterChef’s John Torode and Gregg Wallace realise that the toughest challenge yet, will be seeing how some of Britain’s best-loved puppets will cope in the kitchen.
There will also be live performances form the brand-new stage musical ‘I Should Be So Lucky’ (with a “very special duo”); and a British TV debut performance from Walt Disney Animation Studios upcoming film Wish.
Money raised through BBC Children in Need’s 2023 Appeal will help children and young people overcome the additional challenges they currently face, including supporting children and young people living in poverty, providing emergency support to families in crisis, providing comfort to children feeling sad, lost and alone, helping children overcome social injustice and supporting children to feel safe and secure.
