Wogan, Cotton, Grimmy & Ball to host CIN

BBC Radio 1 and 2 presenters Sir Terry Wogan, Fearne Cotton, Zoe Ball and Nick Grimshaw will join Tess Daly as hosts of this year’s BBC Children in Need.

The television event, to be held on November 15th, will be broadcast live from Albert Square and a new Children in Need studio.

Special guests will include One Direction, Doctor Who, Harry Hill, and cast of Call The Midwife. British sporting legends Torvill & Dean will be taking to the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom, dancing head-to-head against each other whilst the cast of EastEnders will put on a special performance featuring a number of dance styles from Bollywood to ballroom, live in Albert Square.

Sir Terry Wogan, Children in Need Life President, says, “Every year the BBC Children in Need Appeal night is a testament to the extraordinary generosity of the British people. We’ve got the lovely Zoe Ball joining the firm this year, along with the wonderful Tess and Fearne and Mr Grimshaw, and the inimitable Pudsey. They’re all on hand to prop me up as we traverse a fantastic night of entertainment towards what we hope to be another record-breaking total.”

The night of entertainment will also include exclusive performances from the BBC Children in Need Rocks concert masterminded by Gary Barlow, and Frank Skinner will open the doors to a special children’s edition of Room 101. Other music guests across the evening include JLS, Wet Wet Wet, Tinie Tempah, and Ellie Goulding singing the official BBC Children in Need single, ‘How Long Will I Love You’.
Paul Wright, BBC Executive Producer, says: “BBC Children in Need’s move to a new home has unlocked the gates to Albert Square which will bring even more excitement to Appeal night. I am thrilled with the spectacular line-up making it the biggest and most ambitious night in the show’s long history.”
