Taking the reins for this live extravaganza are comedian Joel Dommett and Strictly favourite AJ Odudu – who are joined by a live studio audience and some very special guests.
The laughs will continue on Red Nose Day on BBC One after the BBC News at Ten, as the Prizeathon will be serving up live music, comedy sketches and a chance for viewers to support Comic Relief by entering some unmissable Text to Win Prize Draws.
Incredible prizes on offer during the night include a pair of tickets to this year’s highly anticipated Glastonbury Festival, a brand new hybrid car, and so much more.
Plus, there’s fantastic live music in the studio from George Ezra who will be performing his brand new single ‘Anyone For You’, alongside some more amazing musical performances that are not to be missed!
AJ Odudu says: “Hosting one of the biggest charity events on television really is such an honour and I can’t wait to play my part in helping to raise funds for Comic Relief. With Joel Dommett by my side I've no doubt there'll be plenty of laughs and I can't wait to dish out prizes galore!”
Joel Dommett says: “OMGICBI (oh my god I can’t believe it!) I’m helping host Comic Relief! It’s a huge honour to be asked and I can’t wait to raise plenty of cash while hopefully providing few laughs along the way!”
The Great Comic Relief Prizeathon is coming to BBC One at 10.35pm on Friday 18 March and will also available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
