We're announcing this week that the total money raised for 2010 Sport Relief has topped £40million mark. In fact it stands at a whopping £40,605 054 so far!

It beats the £28million figure from 2008 and overall Sport Relief has now raised an amazing £110 million since 2002.

This is absolutely incredible and beyond our wildest dreams and it's all down to the amazing generosity of you, the public.

The money is already being spent to help people living unimaginably tough lives around the world, and right here in the UK. Wherever you live in the UK I'm sure there'll be at least one Sport Relief project near you.

It was the first city to stage the event outside London back in 2006 and it was also the first time members of public were able to take a seat in the audience.

It is incredible to see how the show has grown over the past four years. The atmosphere generated by the live audience on the night has become a key part of the show and something I know the sports stars really enjoy.

We were in Birmingham in 2006 and 2007 and the Sports Personality team have very fond memories of our time there. We're thrilled to be returning with a show that should once again be very special.
