Red Nose Day is back, live from Media City UK, Salford. It’s the UK’s biggest night of comedy and entertainment, so make sure you don’t miss it!

The epic three-hour fundraising favourite will entertain the nation with hilarious sketches, live performances, big surprises and stunning music while raising much-needed cash for good causes at home and across the world.

Joining Sir Lenny Henry (for one last time live in the Comic Relief studio) will be Romesh Ranganathan, Maya Jama, David Tennant, Davina McCall, Joel Dommett, Rosie Ramsey and Paddy McGuinness.

Unmissable moments will include a very special trailer for The Traitors, the Movie, with an iconic cast including Suranne Jones as Claudia Winkleman. It's a star-studded sketch that promises to deliver all your favourite Traitor moments from series two of the smash hit reality show.

We will also see the exclusive return of one of the nation’s most beloved radio legends – Alan Partridge. Alan will be riding the regional airwaves all the way from his studio and updating our hosts across the night with his fundraising efforts and listener phone-ins.

The cast of W1A return to help to find a worthy replacement for Sir Lenny Henry. The stars of BBC sitcom W1A, Hugh Bonneville (Ian Fletcher), Jessica Hynes (Siobhan Sharpe), Hugh Skinner (Will the Intern) and Monica Dolan (Tracey Pritchard), have exclusively reconvened for the first time on TV in seven years for Comic Relief, holding interviews to find a suitable replacement for Sir Len.

And if that wasn’t enough, the cast of hit musical Just for One Day will be taking to the stage to perform a medley of their hit tracks from the show. Plus, live music from chart-topping rockers Mcfly.

We’ll see Sara Davies, Vicky Pattinson, Alex Scott and Laura Whitmore return after their epic battle against the elements in the Arctic Circle, and live appearances from Martin Lewis, Luke Littler and The Gladiators.

During the night, there will also be films highlighting incredible and inspiring stories of the people supported by some of Comic Relief’s projects in the UK and around the world.

Don’t forget, donations can be made throughout the evening by visiting, calling 03457 910 910 or to donate 5, 10, 20, 30, or 40 pounds, simply text the word FIVE, TEN, TWENTY, THIRTY or FORTY to 70702.
