Sport Relief. It’s Game On.

Sport Relief: The Heat is On

A group of adventurous celebrities have been busy preparing for an epic ice triathlon over the past few weeks, but in light of recent travel concerns, this challenge is taking a new twist as we head from an icy minus 35 degrees to the sweltering 35 degree heat of the Namib desert in Namibia, Africa - one of the hottest, driest and emptiest places on earth.

The money they raise will be used to fund life-changing projects, that tackle mental health, poverty and injustice, in the UK and around the world.

What's coming up on Sport Relief 2020's Night of Television

Hosting the live show will be newcomers Alex Scott, Oti Mabuse, Emma Willis, Tom Allen, Maya Jama and Rylan Clark-Neal as they join Gary Lineker and Paddy McGuinness for an evening filled with fun and fundraising.

Will the identity of H finally be unveiled? Why are Steves around the UK being chased down by a blonde assassin? All will be revealed as Sport Relief returns to BBC One for 2020.

Live from Salford, the Night of TV will serve up some hilarious sketches giving the Sport Relief take on some of the country’s most loved programmes.

Clash of the Channels

The Celebrity Boat Race returns for 2020, and this time it’s bigger and better! Joining BBC and ITV this year are teams from Channel 4 and Sky, who will be looking to claim the title as the fastest channel on water.

Under the wings of Olympic champions James Cracknell OBE and Helen Glover MBE, all four teams will once again battle it out on the challenging waters of Salford Quays.

Line of Duty: Sport Relief Special

Mother of God! DS Arnott, DI Fleming and Superintendent Hastings are back and only interested in one thing, catching bent coppers.

In an exclusive ‘deleted’ scene from series five, all three can be seen interrogating DC Taylor, an accused corrupt copper (played by Jason Isaacs) who they suspect knows the identity of the real ‘H’.

Unfortunately for DC Taylor, his representation comes in the form of ineffective lawyer David Rickman (played by Lee Mack).

Killing Steves

Hit BBC drama Killing Eve undergoes a Sport Relief makeover. A mysterious blonde assassin is on a killing spree, and targeting victims all with the first name “Steve”.

In this Sport Relief special famous Steves from across the UK including snooker legend Steve Davis, Coronation Street favourite Steve McDonald, sporting icon Steve Redgrave and presenter and magician Stephen Mulhern meet their comedic deaths, but who is Killing Steves?

A Round with Rom

Comedian Romesh Ranganathan invites Sir Andy Murray to join him in their own unique version of golf’s Open Championship – but at a mini golf course! Unlike professional golf tournaments, the loser will be subjected to a personal forfeit.

These are only some of the highlights as famous faces come together for sketches and live moments which see them being pushed out of their comfort zones to help raise money to tackle issues such as mental health stigma, domestic abuse, homelessness and child poverty, both in the UK and around the world.
