BBC’s Children in Need spectacular live appeal show returns on Friday 19 November at 7pm on BBC One, with a variety of entertainment acts, all doing their bit to raise money for disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.

Hosted by Terry Wogan and Tess Daly the seven-hour show will come live from BBC Television Centre and will feature some of the UK’s top TV, musical and theatrical personalities and acts.

Highlights on the night include:

* Starring performances from the cast of Coronation Street and EastEnders
* A live performance from JLS of the official Children in Need single, Love You More
* The recently-reformed Take That will perform their new single, The Flood, and in a Children in Need exclusive, will perform one of their classic hits live for the first time since regrouping
* An extra special pop-star edition of Strictly Come Dancing
* Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button going head to head in a go-karting challenge
* A sneak preview of the Doctor Who Christmas special
* Additional live performances from Cheryl Cole, Alexandra Burke, Westlife, The Script, The Saturdays, Ellie Goulding and Maroon 5. More acts to be announced shortly
* Peter Andre performs a tribute to Michael Jackson
* The ladies from Loose Women give Girls Aloud a run for their money with their rendition of The Promise
* And, of course, a very, very special, live performance by the BBC Newsreaders

The programme will also feature broadcasts from around the UK, as BBC presenters join their local communities to catch up with some energetic and creative fundraising exploits

    I’d like to say to C@A that the whole point of Children in Need is to help raise money for Children in Need. It’s not boring, the point at least, and that show saves Childrens lives across the world and all that we think about is why isn’t their a mini episodde! I stand by my exclemation mark. I cannot wait for the fund raising and I am looking forward to the clip. I hope one day the world knows the true meaning of Children in Need. Thank you!

    If they mention the title I will be annoyed though. I don’t want to know it till the titles roll!

    The Pandorica,

    We do not know as much information as we normally do by now because they shot this episode just before they started to shoot series 6.
    Where as in previous years they shoot the christmas special straight after they finish shooting the series.

    I totally agree, children in need is boring without a mini-episode but at least we have a clip of the christmas special!

    I can’t wait!!!

  • Dalek ironside

    October 27th, 2010 - 9:14pm

  • The Pandorica

    October 27th, 2010 - 8:49pm

    I can’t wait! Our first hint of info! We normally have the name and other stuff by now, so they are late this year.

    C@A — Thankfully CIN wasn’t created solely for your entertainment.

    Hint The C is for Children (who are in need)

    this looks cool, i hope they make a new range of doctor who Pudsy bear icons of Amy, Rory, River song etc. and some of the Torchwood and Sarah Jane adventurers cast aswell for the collection would be nice too, I totally agree with C@A Children in Need is boring without a mini-episode.
