Red Nose Day

Comic Relief presents a night of comedy, with sketches, surprises, skits and all-round silliness to raise money to allow the charity to carry out its vital work.

The Comic Relief charity fundraising extravaganza settles into its new home at the O2, where the hosts include Lenny Henry, Jonathan Ross, Sally Phillips, Rob Beckett, Romesh Ranganathan, Warwick Davis and Miranda Hart.

There are live performances from Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer, and Matt Berry and Catherine Tate, while Johnny Vegas and Joe Lycett take over the cooking and serving duties at a local pizza restaurant.

James Corden presents an exclusive Car Pool Karaoke from LA with Take That, and the all-star cast of Love Actually fast-forward 13 years into Red Nose Day Actually. There are also exclusive treats from Mrs Brown, Alan Partridge, Peter Kay and David Walliams.

Live music comes from Ed Sheeran, Rag'n'Bone Man and Emeli Sande.

Throughout the night, there are a number of films showing the work that Comic Relief does both in the UK and in Africa. To donate call 03457 910910 [standard rates].
