Sport Relief set for big weekend
It is finally here, the preparations are virtually complete. It has been two years in the planning and this weekend will see the biggest ever Sport Relief.
Over the past few months David Walliams, Helen Skelton and John Bishop have completed the most amazing Sport Relief challenges, while Frank Skinner has embarked on his own personal quest to overcome a lifetime fear of swimming.
Freddie Flintoff has astonished the world by setting 14 records in 12 hours, including achievements for Most hot dogs made in 1 minute (9) and Fastest 100 metres on a pedalo, (1 minute 58.62 seconds).
We've had members of the England football team battling it out in the Kitchen; Strictly Come Dancing going underwater and the stars of popular sitcom Benidorm coming up close and personal with Simon Cowell and the Britain's Got Talent judges.
Thre's also Frank Lampard and Fiancée Christine Bleakly appearing on TV together in a very funny sketch for Outnumbered; 20 of the biggest names in rugby limbering up to sing with JLS; World Champion Mo Farah being out-run by Misery Bear and 'tennis' star Miranda Hart embarrassing herself in front of the cream of British sport.
You can see it all in a quite incredible night of sporting entertainment starting at 1900 GMT on BBC One on Friday.
Seeing how stars from sport, music and entertainment have been so eager to give their time for free and get involved has been heart-warming - and believe me some of the things we have asked them to do have been pretty tough - did you see Gary Lineker as the back end of a pantomime horse?! And I'll never forget explaining to Sue Barker how we wanted to create a 'double of her' for a special round of Question of Sport called 'Who Barker'.
It's not just about the celebrities of course, and over the weekend more than a million people will also be doing the Mile for Sport Relief. We have BBC cameras at 17 flagship Miles across the UK, including three major Outside Broadcasts at the Mall in London and in Manchester and Glasgow.
You can watch it all unfold live on BBC1 from 1300 BST on Sunday. My family are in training for the Manchester Mile and my youngest daughter Daisy is really going to get a glimpse of Olly Murs who'll be performing at the event!
And don't forget everybody is getting involved with Sport Relief in order to help those people who need it most, both here in the UK and in some of the world's poorest countries.
The moving appeal films we make are a powerful reminders of the reason why people do the incredible challenges, why we make the funny sketches and why everyone has been signing up for Sport Relief Miles all around the country. The money really makes a difference.
I hope you enjoy both shows and if you're running in the Mile good luck and thank you.
