Niall plans the best day ever for young carers

Fifty children from the Young Carers project in Kingston who have caring responsibilities for someone at home were treated to an incredible day of treats by pop star Niall Horan as part of BBC Children in Need 2017.

Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills put on a silent disco where former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt taught the children some dance moves. Pixie Lott hosted a fancy dress photobooth, Harry Judd taught the children how to play the drums and tennis legend Tim Henman played table tennis. TV presenters Sam and Mark cooked up a storm and England goalkeeper Joe Hart took penalties and gave away his goalie gloves to a lucky child.

To top off the day of fun Niall surprised the children to the most exclusive gig in town as he performed his new single Too Much To Ask.

Other exciting content for the appeal show includes the cast of EastEnders in a show-stopping musical medley, six legendary Blue Peter presenters take to the Strictly dancefloor, the Countryfile presenters swap their wellie boots for cowboy boots for an unmissable performance and many more exiting treats and performances from some of the nations most loved stars.
