A brand new magically transforming Red Nose created by legendary designer Sir Jony Ive has been revealed today, with help from AJ Odudu, Amanda Holden, Diane Morgan, Frankie Bridge, Miranda Hart, and Sir Lenny Henry to mark the official launch of Red Nose Day 2023.

Over the past year, Comic Relief’s famous round icon has been through the most dramatic makeover since its debut in 1988. Designed by Jony Ive, the creative genius behind Apple’s most sought-after products, this truly is a Red Nose like no other.

Made almost entirely from plant-based materials, the Red Nose starts as a tiny, flat crescent and springs into a beautiful honeycomb-paper sphere. It is now available to buy on Amazon, the new home of the Red Nose.

Red Nose Day returns at a time of great uncertainty and worry for many across the nation, as the grip of the cost-of-living crisis continues to tighten, and daily poverty rises.

Times are difficult, but millions of people in the UK and across the world need support now more than ever. Money raised will support people struggling with the cost-of-living crisis and tackle issues such as homelessness, mental health problems, and food poverty here in the UK and around the world.

For the very first time, AJ Odudu and Joel Dommett will host the Red Nose Day night of TV alongside Zoe Ball, Paddy McGuinness, and David Tennant. Returning to screens live on BBC One on Friday 17 March, they will be joined by a host of stars and supporters to bring viewers an unmissable evening of comedy, live music, exclusive prizes, and plenty of surprises.

With lots of exciting news to come, today it’s been revealed that global superstar, Kylie Minogue, will feature in a one-off special of much-loved BBC sitcom Ghosts, and a hilarious parody of Love Island will see a very unexpected contestant looking for love. The Red Nose Day night of TV is made by BBC Studios Productions.

This Red Nose Day will also see some of the nation’s favourite famous faces put their willpower and determination to the test in a bid to raise money for Comic Relief. Gethin Jones will be making a special announcement on BBC’s Morning Live today and three celebrity pals will be heading somewhere very cold for a challenge like s-now other.

Much more will be announced over the coming weeks.
