Sir Terry Wogan hosts the 27th annual Money Can't Buy Auction for BBC Children in Need and he's joined once more by his "man with the gavel", auctioneer Paul Viney.

Over the next two hours, listeners can bid for an array of unique, exciting and often very starry experiences. This year's line-up already includes an opportunity to fly to the Royal International Air Tattoo in a De Havilland Vampire T11; or to walk down the red carpet at the 2012 British Academy Television Awards and mingle with the winners at the after show party.

You could also join the captain on the bridge of a luxurious cruise ship; or be taught how to cook by the top team at Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons, headed up by the celebrated chef and friend of Children in Need, Raymond Blanc.

Call 0500 22 11 22 to take part [calls are free from most landlines but some networks and mobile operators will charge]. And there will ample scope to get involved in the fundraising, with Richard and Judy launching Radio 2's Children in Need Jukebox immediately afterwards and inviting listeners to pledge money for a chance to hear their favourite song on Radio 2.

Last year, generous Radio 2 listeners raised an incredible £1,693,444 for BBC Children in Need, with money-can't-buy prizes auctioned on both Weekend Wogan and The Chris Evans Breakfast Show, plus two music request days. The money raised will help change the lives of some of the most disadvantaged children in the UK. For more information, visit
