Preview – Children in Need 2016

Children in Need 2016

You get the feeling that while tonight’s annual Children in Need night will be the usual mix of light entertainment and fun, there will a touch of sadness as this is the first CiN since the death of Terry Wogan in January this year.

Thus it is Graham Norton and Tess Daly who are now mainly at the helm. Among the people and shows will see lending their names to the charity are Would I Lie to You?, EastEnders, Little Mix, Michael Bublé, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Citizen Khan, Russell Kane and Take That. There will also be a tribute to the late Sir Terry.

However, what really matters is your donations. Last year they raised £37 million. Will they beat that?

Children in Need starts on BBC One at 19.30.
