JLS launch Sport Relief 2012

Sport Relief is back and 5 live helped launch the 2012 campaign, with a host of star names joining Eleanor Oldroyd during Thursday's 5 live Sport.

JLS spoke to her about their Sport Relief single 'Proud', while Frank Skinner fretted about attempting his Big Splash swimming challenge. Gary Lineker and Fearne Cotton chatted moments after emerging from a pantomime horse, and Miranda Hart, Stephen Fry, Amir Khan and Helen Skelton all recorded special messages for the programme.

    Ellie was joined in the studio by former European and Commonwealth 400m champion Iwan Thomas who's part of a massive race around the British Isles called First Nation Home.

    They heard about some of the big Sport Relief TV programmes and listened to powerful stories from those whose lives have been changed with the help of Sport Relief money.

There was also a taste of what 5 live will be doing - Danny Baker's Shirt of Hurt is back and bigger than ever, while Jason Roberts represented 606, which will launch a major online football auction with a unique show in March.
