BBC newsreaders along with former newsreader Angela Rippon are to re-enact one of TV's most famous moments for Children In Need.

They will revisit the dance routine Rippon performed with Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise in 1976.

In this excerpt from the sketch, Sian Williams, Sophie Raworth, Susanna Reid and Emily Maitlis emerge from a newsdesk in the Strictly Come Dancing segment for the charity fund-raiser.

It will be broadcast during Children in Need on BBC One from 19:00 GMT on Friday.
