Tony Livesey and the Breakfast team are also having a hoot(er). Producer Alison has been teasing Tony about the size of his conk and she arranged for Tony to have a special nose made for him by pottery and ceramic expert Jane Fox from Walton Le Dale.

So now, we want YOU to make your own nose and bring them out to Blackpool Pleasure Beach on Red Nose Day, 13th March 2009, for the Breakfast Show's outside broadcast between 7am and 9am. The team will be at the BBC Radio Lancashire office under the Big One on Blackpool's prom.
