telling us, "We're going to do this, We'll go to Vegas and
do this radio thing. And then we'll hit them

Are you gamers? They said I would meet famous people if I came here
today. Are you famous? Do you know Adele? Can I meet her? Adele is not
here. This is not about getting on the telly and being famous people.
Ed Sheeran is backstage. Izzy backstage? He is famous, but Ginger,
it don't really count. Everyone is here because they care about others
less well off and they want to do a little bit to make a difference. You
have contributed zero, don't know anyone and do nothing. Thank you.
The whole country has been watching you. What have you got to say for
yourself? Am I bothered? Am I bothered? Do you think I am
bothered? I don't care, mate. Look at my face, right? Is any part of me
bothered? Somebody call her parents. Look, says, bothered, I don't care.
Buzzards, phase, Red Nose Day, I ain't bothered, I don't care, I
don't bother. Ed Sheeran, baked beans, shave your head. I don't

# Silent night, holy night. # All is calm, all is white.
That is a nice idea. Yes, thank you, we are very happy.
Do you like the beard? I don't like it either.
Tomorrow is Red Nose Day and we hope everyone will be giving a little
cash to this great cause. Back in number ten after five years away and
here is a little song to loosen your loose change.
MUSIC: "Hotline Bling" by Drake.
# You got a reputation for yourself now
# Everybody knows and I feel left out...
# You started wearing less and goin' out more
# Glasses of champagne out on the dance floor
# Hangin' with some girls I've never seen before
How many times have I told you not to dance down the stairs?
When I hear that hotline bling, that can only mean one thing.
I liked it best when you worked for me.
So, Billy Mack, welcome back to the airwaves.
Billy, you have released a charity single, and it's a cover version
of the ZZ Top classic Gimme All Your Lovin'.
Yes, except we've changed the word "lovin'" to "money".
a wonderful charity supporting children.
No, the truth is, I like the kids who buy my records.
Even you must have noted how short and selfish they are.
I've got an autobiography coming out and I need a bit of publicity.
Billy, I see you haven't got your manager with you today.
Tell me, has he finally left you, after you being so rude about him?
Well, for giving an honest answer to a question.
That never happens here at Radio Watford.
Ask me anything you like, I'll tell you the truth.
OK, I probably asked you this last time you were here....
It's definitely one of the Kardashians.
Are you looking for anything in particular?
It'll be ready in the jiffiest of jiffies.
This is so much more than just a bag.
Do you remember the first time I drove you?
I remember looking at you and thinking,
I wished you could speak Portuguese, so I could tell you how I felt.
There was something about central heating, wasn't there?
By the way, very attractive turtleneck today.
Can we have rice with it this time, though?
I'm getting a little tired of stir-fry.
And, of course, the yoghurt-coated raisins.
I know, I thought I'd give you a surprise visit.
The surprise is, you have to pay for my flight.
No, I'm just wearing high-heeled trainers.
I'm worried. You haven't been in touch.
I know, I'm sorry. I've just had a lot on my mind.
I can help you with money, you know. I'm loaded.
Well, it's more of a love thing, actually.
You should have had this sorted out ages ago.
the only person you've ever genuinely been in love with
was that cute, wee girl, the singer at school.
We met up in New York and, er, well, that's why we're here.
I was wondering if I could ask for your son's hand in marriage.
All you want for Christmas is this stringbean?
Prime Minister, what happened to your arm?
I fell down the stairs while dancing to Hotline Bling.
I believe it happened to Palmerston as well.
Yes, Prime Minister, when you came to power the first time,
You said that the power of good could finally win,
14 years later, do you still feel as upbeat?
Obviously, times for many people have got harder and people
And it's not just in politics that things are tough.
Usain Bolt has run his last Olympics.
The Harry Potter films have finished.
But let's look at the other side of the coin.
Metallica's new album is an absolute cracker.
And on a deeper level, I'm optimistic.
Wherever you see tragedy, you see bravery too.
Wherever you see ordinary people in need,
you see extraordinary ordinary people come to their aid.
Today's Red Nose Day, and people are giving their hard-earned cash
to people who they'll never meet, but whose pain and fear
So it's not just romantic love which is all around.
Most people still, every day, everywhere, have enough love
in their heart to help human beings in trouble.
Prime Minister, what do you think is the best
I want to talk about the famine that has been on the news recently. We
have been doing this a long time back in 1994, there was a horrible
famine in Ethiopia and Sudan and some bright spark said, I know, send
a bunch of comedians to help! Worst idea ever! I am so proud of
everything we have achieved together, Comic Relief is working to
give long-term change in gradually change entire communities for the
better. But sometimes, really big stuff happens which upsets an entire
country. Two years ago, we gave life-saving help when Ebola struck
in Africa and there is this crisis across four countries across Africa
now, it is real and very frightening. More than half the
population of Yemen is hungry, half a country. Tonight, 20 million
people do not know whether next meal is coming from, there is no food at
all, parents watching their children die of hunger before their eyes. Set
up Comic Relief after a famine and it is crazy not to give money to
night to help this intense emergency. You, the brilliant and
generous British public, have the power to save lives right now. If
you can part with money tonight and next week, we can reach families
literally starving to death. This is an opportunity right now to be part
of the news in a good way, to save a life tonight. Please, please, please
give what you can. You know the details, I will not say them again,
you can see how easy it is to do. Go online... Hit the donate button and
give what you can. Or pick up the phone and dialled... Or send a text.
Text yes. Welcome to Your Mum: a little game
that unearths a few embarrassing secrets about our hosts and,
more importantly, Romesh and his mum Shanti
m and Joel and Penny. For the sons and daughters
I will read out some statements made by your mum and you have to think
if it was your mum or one of the other mothers
by holding up your plate. On one side, it says my mum
and on the other, it says your mum. These are all absolutely true
facts your kids do not know about. Here we go, fact number one,
one of the mothers said this... I once caught my partner talking
to another woman, to get him back I used his toothbrush to clean
the entire house, sinks Was that your mum or one
of the other mums? That's such a maternal thing
to do, because you get revenge, but the house
is immaculate afterwards. Did you clean everything
with the toothbrush, the toilet? Don't know if you will still be
talking after this one. Which one of your mums had some fun
with an '80s pop star? I can tell you that the pop
star was Meatloaf. Sorry, sorry, hello, high! He
touched me! Hello! Nice! Lovely, a bit feminine, but lovely. The Sun,
what is going on, I am not sure Ed knows the Comic Relief rules, a
silly rule which I will stick by. It demands that the musical act, they
have to kiss with passion and considerable meaning, the tallest
host of tonight. It is a role. It is my first year, I don't know! Yes, it
is a rule, so... CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. You have got
lit bomb on so... No, that is not fair! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. I just
remembered something, sorry, it is the tallest female hose that gets
the kiss! -- host. It's been over three years
since the outbreak of Ebola killed When was the last time
you went to school? I think that is going to happen, you
have got a beautiful voice! The thing preventing her getting her
dreams, she has not got a dad and it is up to her to bring in money. She
is only 12. Last thing I wanted this trip to be
was to be the celebrity who comes over to Africa and cries on TV
and says, "Send your money over." I really wanted to come and be like,
everything is positive, I don't know, just
singing with that girl... She was smiling and she just started
crying. Yeah, she just got really
choked up about it. I watch Comic Relief every single
year, and this is always I always think, no,
is it really that bad? Then I sort of turn
up and, yes, it is. That is just one story out here, it
was the smiley as the girl who came up to us. I have tried to speak to
so many and she is the smiley as and she has got that story, so God
This is the really important thing...
To send a girl like Peaches to school for a whole year is only ?45.
So please give what you can, you can completely change lives tonight,
thank you. Please welcome my next guest, Tom
Daley, the diver. Are you not hot? Yes, I am hot! So take it off! To
compare our bodies? That is a good idea! Right, OK, when we go to a
swimming pool, why do we have a shower, it is a big bat anyway!
Hygiene, bacteria, that kind of stuff. Do they put Blue Day into a
slim import to stop people being in them? No. It is a myth, I have been
holding it in for no reason? You probably should not be doing that
anyway! Mr perfect! The serious business, raising money for Africa,
if people pledge, you are happy to do a charity dive, I presume? Into
the hot tub? Yes, we will get you a dive chair. I cannot do that! Don't
you care about charity, Tom? Of course, but two feet of water, I
cannot do that! So why have we got a diver, anyone?! No, no! What was
that? Nothing. It had to be something. Somebody has said if I
take my top off, they will give money to charity. It is not
happening, all right? It is for a good cause. The dive was for a good
cause, Tom! It's all going to be very tasteful
and actually really sexy, OK? Now, I've only rented
this place for an hour, Come on, Ed, mate.
Trying to do a shoot here. Yeah, it's not all about you, Ed.

of the biggest killers Even though it is
preventable and treatable. This is the children's ward in one
of Malawi's biggest hospitals. Most of the children
here are suffering from malaria. The problem is so consuming there
aren't enough beds to go around. She laughs, she cries and,
like many children of her age, Her mother, Mary,
is desperately poor. There aren't any malaria testing
kits in her village. So she's had no choice
but to walk for three hours, carrying her daughter
to the nearest hospital. All the time, her little girl's
blood was being destroyed Doctor Columbo is doing
everything he can to save her. If only Mtunduwatha had been
diagnosed even a day earlier, she might not now be fighting

Jonathan Ross, I have never interviewed you. And thank you very
much to what I think is the most important Slovak on the television.
It is a pleasure to be here. Good luck, Gordon. Thank you. I can peel
a banana with my feet. OK, let's do it. Where do you want it? Pull the
table out of the way. Here we go, oh, my God. It is like planet Earth.
My feet are bit sweaty! Oh, and there it is. Yes! Oh! David, David,
is the culprit in broad church sitting somewhere on this server?
Well, Lenny is looking a bit guilty. It must be weird walking around
knowing. I know. I feel hugely powerful. I do know because we have
filmed the end of the series. You did not know in the first series? We
had absolutely no idea, so when you are doing an interview seen you have
no idea or not. What was your special trick? Can you do it?
Basically I... I am going to try and do this. If anyone wants to try and
do it, I am probably going to fail. What is it called? It has no name,
you can name it if you want. This is Cara Delevingne doing something. Oh,
God. Oh! Oh, oh, oh. The concentration! That is incredible,
everyone. She is getting back up. We have had a great laugh tonight, but
I want to talk to you about something very serious. No one in
this century should die of hunger. It is nonsense and an obscenity. I
would like you to watch this film tonight.

He's got chubby cheeks, and every chance of a

These are packed full of nutrients and are amazing
for malnourished children like Divine.
They're very often the difference between life and death.
Before we go, I have one bit of last business. It is the final hurdle. We
will see it on the screen. It will be rendered and revealed. The total
for tonight so far is... We have raised more money than we
anticipated. Millions in the last hour. Whilst these people were
having their psyches destroyed, more money was rolling in. Thank you very
much. Stay together, behave yourselves. Thanks, all of you, for
watching. Every time we ask you to give, you step up to the plate and
you never let us down. You are beautiful people in a glorious
