Children in Need 2013 what to expect

It’s that time of year again when celebrities and members of the public alike do all sorts of embarrassing, crazy and damn right silly things in order to raise money for Children in Need.

Tonight everyone from JLS to Torvill and Dean will be joining presenters Tess Daly, Fearne Cotton and Terry Wogan to raise money in order to help change the lives of disabled children and young people in the UK.

The show kicks off on BBC 1 at 7:30pm with a performance from the cast of West End show Matilda. Also tonight Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean who will be swapping their skates for dance shoes in this year’s Strictly challenge, Frank Skinner banishes more celebrities’ pet hates in a special edition of Room 101 and the cast of Call the Midwife tackle a song-and-dance medley.

And if that wasn’t enough for you the cast Eastenders will also be showing off a whole range of dance techniques, One Direction and Gary Barlow will be making an appearance and Ellie Goulding will perform this year’s official Children in Need song, How Will I Love You.
