Preview – Sports Relief 2018

Sport Relief

Another spring, another Sports Relief. This year, Gary Lineker, Davina McCall and Ore Oduba will be presenting live from Salford as of 7pm. Later into the night Paddy McGuinness, Claudia Winkleman and Freddie Flintoff will take on presenting duties as the charity event rolls into the early hours.

On the schedule this year, viewers will be treated to celebrity boxing as 6 famous faces take to the ring, while elsewhere Robbie savage leads a host of nine other sporting personalities in a mammoth 12 hour non-stop 5 a side football match. We follow John Bishops as he sets out on a mission to help England in the World Cup and also three football legends as they don their sequins for a Strictly Come Dancing special. Rounding off the night is a live “battle of the channels” as ITV and BBC go head to head in wintry boat race. Of course this event is for a fantastic cause, raising money for those around the world who need it most – with a special emphasis this year on maternal health, malaria and mental health.
