Nick Grimshaw plans mega fund-raising show
Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw is planning to raise as much money as possible in just one show, for Comic Relief.
During the three and a half hour show on Thursday 14th March, he’ll be joined by lots of celebrity guests and include special features in a bid to get donations in whilst being streamed live online and via the Red button.
Some of the guests confirmed so far include David Walliams, Little Mix, Jessie J, Conor Maynard, Rizzle Kicks, Union J, Louis Smith, Claudia Winkleman and Wretch 32 – with more to be announced shortly.
Nick Grimshaw says: “I’m really excited to be so heavily involved in Comic Relief this year – I can’t wait to do a mega show and hopefully raise a lot of money for charity!”
Andy Worrell, Editor of the Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw, says: “We’re putting together an exciting three-and-a-half hours full of adventure and fun, all to raise money for brilliant causes in Africa and right here in the UK. Expect to see some amazing surprise guests throughout the show too!”
