In Pics: Red Nose Day raises £71 million!
2017's Red Nose Day raised a massive £71 million for Comic Relief. Here are the highlights from Friday night's TV extravaganza...
2017's Red Nose Day raised a whopping £71 million for good causes in the UK and around the world. The day's finale was a massive TV show hosted by lots of celebs, including comedian and a founder of Comic Relief, Lenny Henry (left), and presenter Jonathan Ross (right).
Singer Ed Sheeran performed on the show and appeared to forget a few of his words, but just laughed it off. Ed also made a short film about his trip to Liberia, Africa, to raise awareness about how money donated can help.
James Corden was joined in his car by Garry Barlow and the rest of Take That to take part in a special carpool karaoke showing off their singing skills!
One thing lots of grown-ups were looking forward to last night was a special short sequel to the film Love Actually made especially for Comic Relief. The films' famous writer and director, Richard Curtis, was also one of the people who founded Comic Relief back in 1985.
The sequel was of course Red Nose Day themed as you can see here, and show the cast members, including comedian Rowan Atkinson, 14 years after the original film.
