Join Danny Baker's Shirt Of Hurt for Sport Relief 2010

Danny Baker and Adrian Chiles with a Wolves shirt

Danny Baker kicked off the Shirt Of Hurt Sport Relief fund-raiser on his BBC Radio 5 Live show today.

Danny challenged Match Of The Day 2 presenter and avid West Bromwich Albion fan Adrian Chiles to wear a Wolverhampton Wanderers shirt on tomorrow night's MOTD2 (10.55pm, BBC Two), calling for listeners to donate money to Sport Relief as encouragement!

How much would it take for you to wear the shirt of your fiercest rival? What's it worth to see a Spurs fan pull on an Arsenal shirt or a Scotland rugby fan dressed in the Three Lions?

Over the next few weeks, Danny will be challenging the public, 5 Live presenters, celebrities and sports people to put on their Shirt Of Hurt to raise cash for Sport Relief.

Danny Baker's Shirt Of Hurt will run until Sport Relief night, Friday 19 March, with participants featured on Danny Baker's 5 Live programme on Saturday 6 and Saturday 13 March (9.00-11.00am).

Danny says: "Where there is discord, may we bring harmony. Where there is error, may we bring truth. Where there is red, may we bring blue.

"For the best of all possible reasons, for the biggest of all possible donations, free your colours and your heart will follow."

The 5 Live website,, will host a The Shirt Of Hurt gallery for people to send in their pictures and donate to Sport Relief.

Listeners can send photos to Danny Baker's email address,
