to Do My Thing - a little All you need to do is be
as incredibly brilliant, funny, warm and loved
as the great Sir Terry Wogan. Yeah, really not helping,
Tess. But on a serious note,
this is our first year without our dear friend
and charismatic leader, Sir Terry. The embodiment of everything
Children in Need And it's up to all of us,
as a team, to continue One thing I'll always remember
about Sir Terry is that he Because of you, Children in Need
helps children across the UK. Because of you, help
is never far away. Your parents always there
for you but she's someone else. Because of you there
is a brighter future. Because of you, there is help
in the toughest times. I knew from that moment
on that they would be OK. You've helped children smile
and laugh, even when life So please, phone tonight and do
something incredible. One thing you must
do tonight, Because of you, Children in Need
can make a difference. Because of you, my child
gets her smile back. You can donate on the BBC
Children in Need website. Use your debit or credit card

donate - and whilst we're doing details, let's talk

extra cost to you! So when you're asked
if you'd like to claim Gift Now, the keen-eyed
amongst you will notice His first wish was to present
Children in Need. His second was for me
to give him a foot rub. Keep waiting mate.
But for my third wish, I'd like an amazing medley
from the cast of West End musical # Every hour or so
where incredible feats are routine # See the dervishes dance
in ridiculous pants # Then romance to your heart's
delight # It's another Arabian night
on in let the magic begin # More often than not
are hotter than hot # A fool
off his guard # Arabian nights
# Shining, shimmering, splendid
# Tell me, princess, now when did you
# A whole new world On a magic carpet ride
# No one to tell us no Or where to go
# I'm like a shooting star I've come so far
# A whole new world To where I used to be
# A whole new world whole new world with you
# Well Ali Baba had them forty thieves
# But master you in luck 'Cause up your sleeves
# You got a brand of magic never fails
# You got some power in your corner now
# Some heavy ammunition in your camp
# And how pizzazz, yahoo
# See all you gotta do is rub that lamp
# Let me take your order Jot it down
# No no no had a friend like me
Somebody, call me an cab, we're takin' it home!
# You ain't never had a friend, never had a friend
# You ain't never had a friend
# You ain't never had a friend, like me
Tonight, we are everywhere -
And if you want to join the conversation, search
This year, schools all across the nation have been
joining the Big Spotacular, raising funds for BBC
Just like Beacon Rise Primary School in Bristol.
# Nothing I can see but you when you dance,
(Pupils here have been wearing spots!)
# I got that sunshine in my pocket, got that good soul in my feet... #
And taking part in sponsored spotty challenges.
So, if you've been raising money at school and helping to make this
year's Children In Need appeal Spotacular...
A heartfelt thank you to Danny and Tiki all you
Over the years, you have raised a quite phenomenal amount of
You're on track to raise at least ?5 million!
High fives to all you schoolchildren out there!
But it's not just school children who have been pulling out the stops
to fundraise - here's what else is going on across the UK
It makes me feel good because I know that I am helping somebody else.
My whole family comes to my house and we all watch
We sit on the sofa and eat popcorn whilst watching it.
It's important to remember that wherever you are in the UK,
there's a Children in Need project somewhere near you.
I didn't know you spoke Welsh!
And you at home should be parking your behinds on the sofa,
because here's all the great stuff that's still to come.
up - EastEnders goes back to the 1980s. There is a festive special
from the Time Lord. David Brent is in the studio! And we meet Oscar
winner Eddie Redmayne! Can't wait for that EastEnders
'80s movie tribute! Just think of the fun
you could have with it! Not to mention Ghost Butchers
and of course Mad Max Branning. You got so excited,
you forgot Pat To The Future. Next, I'd like you to meet a lovely
boy called Max. He wants to tell you how your
donations have changed his life It's where the face
forms differently. The ears don't have
ear holes like mine. You're going to be deaf
if you have that. Max has no ear canals,
so although everything inside works, no sound gets in, so he has very
unusual hearing aids. My hearing aids are like special
hearing aids I have. He has implants in his head
which they attach to. The sound goes into those,
vibrates, and then he can hear. With his hearing aids in,
Max's hearing is OK. But it's at night when the problems
begin. In bed, he has to take the hearing
aids out and he can't hear a thing. He would come downstairs,
keep coming down, keep calling. It just made me feel
terrified at night. It got to the point where
he actually did not It's all like silent and it just
freaks me out a bit. It was just really, really difficult
getting him to sleep. It's just the feeling
of being alone. Sometimes the mind
plays tricks on you. Chloe is a specially
trained hearing dog. Thanks to you, she's just one
of many dogs across the UK that support deaf children in their
daily lives. She lies right there and I love
that just because I can Him knowing that he can be
woken by Chloe makes It makes him realise
he is not isolated. It's like having the best friend
in the world times ten next to you. In the past, Max has had people
that have made nasty All of that just chips away,
knocks his confidence. Some people treat me differently
because of the way I look. Now when they say hello to Chloe,
they say hello to me too, and that just makes me
feel so happy. I feel like she's
part of the family. Max, thank you so much
for telling us all about Chloe. You are both wonderful
and we are so happy for you. You've been so generous before,
and for that we thank you. Tonight, we are asking
for your help once more. Tonight, you can help other children
like Max by calling 03457 33 22 33. Standard geographic
charges will apply. Or if you would prefer,
you can donate online I've got twin sisters,
both called Greg, and I hold the world record for bad
jokes told in one minute? It was just a very clever way
of seamlessly linking Because it's time for Rob Brydon,
Lee Mack, David Mitchell and some very important guests
in our Would I Lie To You Children Good evening and welcome
to a very special edition of Would I Lie To You
for Children In Need. On Lee Mack's team tonight,
ten-year-old unicorn And 11-year-old football
mad Jack from Wrexham. And on David Mitchell's team
tonight, nine-year-old self-confessed tomboy
Zara from Nottingham. And nine-year-old aspiring inventor
Adit from Harrow. Ah, now then, there's
a box under the desk. Could you first of all read out
the card, Kitty, that's in there, and then when you've read it out,
place the object on the desk. This is the autograph I got
from Lee Mack after I accidentally Now, Lee, maybe you could read
to us what it was that It certainly sounds
like the sort of joke Very working class
and down-to-earth. Could you change that
to ASDA or Lidl? Lee Mack was in a Waitrose cafe
having a pheasant wrap? I wanted to get his attention,
so I walked over. Kitty, why would you want
to get his attention? So you walked up to him,
and did he seem friendly, Kitty? Yeah.
He might have been with, like... And then I was like, "Oh,
sorry, sorry, sorry." And then we got someone to come
and clear it up. And then I said,
"Can I get your autograph?" And then when you gave it to me,
I was like, OK, wow. They don't care about autographs any
more, it's all this, innit? I don't know if he had his phone
on him, but a selfie, then. You'd have asked for
a selfie on my phone? And then expected me to say,
"Here, have this?" Why didn't you want
to meet her again? Why did you wish
you'd never met her? I think it was to do
with the scalding pain in my legs. And how do we know that that's
a Waitrose napkin? Do you know the difference?
No. Because if you do,
we're in business. Would you like us to pass
you the evidence? "I wish we'd never
met," no full stop. So, what do you think
then, David's team? I don't think you would
write on a napkin. I can play a TV theme
tune on the thing Rob I tell you what, this
is going to be interesting. Well, I don't know, you're so small,
Rob, it's hard to get a perspective. It could be something
you find in a Kinder Egg. Well, you tell us,
you know what it is, Adit. It's not a trumpet, it's not
a trumpet. You say you play the theme tune to a
television show? Yeah.
Which one, which TV show? That's a good question,
which show? OK.
Any others? I can't really remember
the other ones. You see, now we're in this tricky
situation, aren't we, because if we ask him to play it
and he's telling the truth, he will deliberately
not be able to play it, I think if we just discuss it,
and then if it's true, I don't think it's true
because he said he knows how to play a theme tune and he said,
"I can't remember the others." So you're not happy that he's
changing the story. Yeah, my wife's got a similar
face to that. You think it's true and he's
pretending he didn't know what kind of instrument
it was? I'm going with Jack
and saying it's true. PLAYS THEME TO BLACKADDER
APPLAUSE AND CHEERING Wow! That noise signals time is up
and it's the end of the show. In real life, lying
is a bit like me. Thank you so much to Rob, Lee,
and David, as well as Jack, Although, obviously
I must stress, honesty That's why I always, 100%, tell
the truth. My advice would be don't breathe
in for the next five or ten minutes. Here's Gaby Roslin to
say a big thank you. Staff and customers here at ASDA
have been helping out And the money, of course, goes to
the young people here in the UK. And this year, they're continuing
their amazing fundraising. Mummy, can she please have this
for Children In Need? Good afternoon,
ladies and gentlemen. Please buy anything you can
for BBC Children In Need. # All the girls on the block
knocking at my door... Come on, ladies, please,
Children In Need. You just go on to the Children
In Need website and there's loads I'm going to pop that there,
and hopefully Mummy's got a little bit of spare change
for Children In Need. Thank you all so much
for your support, and you guys Thank you to the staff and customers
of Asda for Doing Their Thing. Let's find out how much those lovely
people have raised. Now, Greg, what were
you doing in the 1980s? Mainly running around pretending
to be Michelangelo. Well, the rest of country
was obsessed with these things. Well, while Greg struggles
with an old classic, in Walford they're doing
a much better job. EastEnders is going back
in time to celebrate And it all starts with
Albert Square's very own Top Gun. MUSIC: Take My Breath Away by
Berlin. # You ain't seen the best of me yet
# Give me time, I'll make you forget the rest
# I've got more in me # And you can set it free
# I can catch the moon in my hand # Don't you know who I am?
# Remember my name is # Fame
# I'm going to live for ever # I'm going to learn how to fly
# I feel it coming together # People will see me and die
# I'm going to make it to heaven # Light up the sky like a flame
# I'm going to live forever # Baby, remember my name
# Remember, remember, remember. # I had the time of my life, and I
owe it all to you # I want you more than you'll
# Don't be afraid to lose control # You're the one thing I can't get
enough of # So I'll tell you something
# This could be large # Because I have the time of my life
# And I never felt this way before # Yes, I swear it's the truth
# And I owe it all to you... Footloose, kick off the Sunday
shoes Please, Louise, Jack,
get back, come on before we crack # Lose your blues,
everybody cut footloose Huge thanks to the cast
of EastEnders. Every year, you pull out the stops
for Children in Need, Have you managed to
finish your cube, Greg? Peeled off all the stickers and now
every side is black. Or should that be
an interdimensional exclusive? Yes, the Time Lord hasn't been
on our screens all year - until now! This is a never-before-seen, well,
"scene", from the Dr Who Christmas Quiet. Reporter from the daily
Chronicle. Why am I telling you the truth? Spooky, isn't it. This is
America. Who are you? Special agent Dan dangerous from Scotland Yard.
The doctor, for short. They have institutes all over the world but
always in capital cities. Yes, they are. New York is not a capital city,
is it? I would call security, but they might leave you alive. I do not
want any awkward questions about the intruders I was forced to shoot for
my own protection. Good plan. Here's another. Tell them you shot us in
the back in self defence. We'll be laughing all the way to the slab.
Face me now. Maybe not. What is that? Not me. It's like someone
knocking on the window. We are on the 100th floor. Oh, my God, he is
real. Who? The ghost, a masked vigilantes. Mind if I come in?
Impressive. The windows, like everything, is built to withstand a
last equivalent to 400 nuclear explosions. Would you like me to
call a glazier? It's against my personal code to
cause lasting harm to anyone. However, light to moderate injury is
fine. Well, Christmas really has
come early this year! It sure has, Tess -
all I need now is a box of chocolate Round up a couple of badges and head
out to the trampoline! Well, I don't have any trampoline
but I do have some brilliant musical treats coming up for
us all later tonight. There's music from Ellie Goulding,
Olly Murs and Take That - and also the moves to match
in our Strictly Olympians special. Right now, it's time
we said another thank you. And to do it for us,
here's a cheeky trio. Who have been raising money
for BBC Children In Need, which supported projects
all around the UK. This year, they've also teamed up
with British Gymnastics to launch new campaigns to get
the nation active. Gym clubs and leisure centres
nationwide are leaping, In a bid to raise money
for Children In Need. Today at Nottingham City Gymnastics
Club, we've been jumping for Pudsey. We've been jumping in and out
of hoops, jumping ropes. We were so tired but it was worth it
because we've raised lots of money. Thanks to everyone
who's taking part. And don't forget you can
still get your Pudsey ears, wristbands and
key rings in store. Later on tonight, we've got a very
magical sketch for you, set in the world of
witchcraft and wizardry. Did another online
Sorting Hat quiz earlier - That's funny -
I always had you down That is one of the single worst
things anyone has ever said to me. But I'll let it slide,
because I'm so excited about I'm trying to get
through to Pudsey Bear. You'll have to be quick,
I'm reading the news. Large hat, loves custard.
Er, no. Wow, Mary,
thank you. Hello, Eddie.
Hello? Mel and Sue keep putting me
through to the wrong people. Eddie Redmayne and a whole
host of surprise guests You can find out exactly
who they are in the next Next, a film from
a very brave family. Here's Nadiya Hussain
to tell you more. I don't know how I'd cope if I found
myself in the situation this next What I do know is that they are
brave and wonderful and that Children in Need was able to help
when help was truly needed. Running and playing sport,
I love it. I think, as long as I can keep
doing that, and the kids, as long as they can see me doing
the things I love, Six years ago, Annette
was diagnosed with cancer. Since then, it's been a constant
presence in her family's life. Your initial urge is to
protect the children. There are times when everything
is fine and then suddenly I'm diagnosed again with something else
and that is scary for them. You struggle to know how you're
going to deal with it. Nobody's got the experience really
to be able to do that. That was one of the most difficult
things. Every time she gets cancer or every
time something happens, The sickness in the bathroom,
everything, they are aware of what's It hurts me to see them having
to deal with this. During these difficult times,
Annette and her children The group centres across the UK
which supports all sorts of families For Annette, Maggie's was just
across the road from where When I was having my last IV
chemotherapy, I looked out of the window to see the kids
joyously playing at Maggie's. I knew, from that moment on,
that they would be OK. That was from one of the kids
days we had. Somebody got too
enthusiastic with red paint. Thomas and Amelia can
go over and just talk They can talk openly
about treatment, about hair falling out, about all sorts of things
and they just feel that Maggie's is about having a space
to talk about feelings but trying to make sure it's not
done in a pushy way. Trying to give kids particularly
a range of different angles to think about how they might express what's
going on for them. It's normal to feel anxious
and a bit frightened, but talking about it can
make a real difference. I wouldn't really talk to anyone
else, I don't think. In July 2015, Annette
was told that her cancer had spread and this time,
it was incurable. We just sat down on the bed one
night and they could tell we were really upset and we just
said to them, you know, things have got really bad and it's
in Mummy's bones and bone marrow. And we just all had a cry
for about an hour and then the first Because of your donations,
Maggie's was there to support It just worries me because I don't
know what's happening next. When I talk about it,
I let out my feelings, The uncertainty for the kids
is something that It's not knowing, not knowing how
they will be able And I want to spend every moment
with them, but I don't know where I'm going to be in six
months' time or a year. I just want them to enjoy
life and be happy. And, to me, it's a comfort knowing
that Maggie's is there for them. Of course, our thoughts
are with you all. And of course, Maggie's
will be there for you all. One of those sessions
with Andrew costs ?30. Without your money -
there are no Andrews. I don't know about you but I really
think we need more people like him. Or donate online at bbc.co.uk/
Pudsey. Now it's time for one of my very
favourite parts of Children in Need. And it was one of Sir Terry's
favourite parts, too - Tonight, 1,580 children have come
together to perform for you. Performing live from nine
towns across the country, they're singing the very
appropriate Lean On Me. And they have all asked that
you please continue # We know that
there's always tomorrow # Lean # And I'll be your
friend # I'll help you carry on # For it won't be long
# Till I'm gonna need # Somebody to lean on # Please
swallow your pride # If I have # Please
swallow your pride # If I have
things you need to borrow of your needs # That you won't let
show # So just call on me brother I just might have a problem that
you'd understand # Lean on me,
when you're not strong # And I'll
be your friend # Till I'm
gonna need # Somebody to lean
# So just call on me, brother when you need a hand
# I just might have a problem that you'd understand
# Call me, if you need a friend
# Till I'm gonna need
# Somebody to lean on
Thank so much to the Children in Need Choir.
Unbelievable, that's what it's all about, kids helping other kids,
beautiful. And while we are all being grateful,
there's someone else who deserves Up and down the country customers
and staff at Lloyds banking group have been fundraising for children
in need. So today I'm in Watford to say a very special thank you on
behalf of Pudsey and those who have contributed are going to get a very
special thank you. Talk us through some of the things you've done.
Climbing Scovell Pike, bath of beans. Charity auctions, pub
quizzes. This is a little token of our appreciation.
Thank you so much to children in need. On behalf of BBC children in
need we'd like to say a huge thank you to all of your kind efforts.
Let's see just how much you've raised, shall we? Can we have a
total? Over five and a half million pounds! Congratulations to everyone
who got stuck in, it's a huge amount. Well done indeed.
What would you say if your all-time favourite band suddenly
The Vengaboys are currently touring in Budapest.
Well, I'm more of a Little Mix kind of girl.
And as it turns out, so are the wonderful members
of the Children in Need-funded project Haringey Shed.
Welcome to Haringey Shed, one of the amazing projects funded
Today the children think they're here to rehearse our
They just think it's an ordinary rehearsal,
but they're in fact in for a little bit of a Little Mix surprise.
Whilst the children are going through their warm-ups,
unbeknown to them, we'll be watching their every move.
We've put a team of workmen in disguise in the studio to really
And the staff and all the volunteers are all involved.
WHOOPING All right, ready, Terry, thanks, mate.
# For a spell that can't be broken potion # I'll make you fall in love
# Boy, you belong to me I got the recipe...
# BANGING AND CLATTERING # It's called Black Magic...
Sorry, we're just trying to do one chorus.
# Take a sip of my secret potion I'll make you fall in love
# For a spell that can't be broken One drop should be enough

Black Magic # And it's called Black Magic...
LITTLE MIX: # All the girls on the block knocking at my door

I can't believe Little Mix were here.
And it's like my dream world has come true.
We wanted to come down here and see what everyone does here at Haringey
So, what sort of activities do you do here?
We do acting, singing, and playing instruments.
Dancing sometimes, dancing.
So what would you guys say is the best thing
If you mostly come here all the time, then you'll
# Take a sip from the secret potion # One taste and you'll be mine

# Boy, you belong to me
# They were really nice and beautiful.
It was really amazing when they just popped out of there because we never
Little Mix were burst out, I was actually crying.
It was the best day I've ever had, ever.
Thank you so much to Old Men Grooving, and of course,
This is about a gorgeous little boy, presented by the one and only Len
Goodman. Children should be able to play,
muck about and have fun, be free. For some children, though,
that's not possible. Some children don't have a sense
of danger so they're not free. Some children need a bit of support
so they can have a childhood. And that's where your
donations come in. I want to say thank you for all
the support you've given If you could call again tonight it
would be really, really great. But first, I'd like you to meet
a lovely little chap called When we get in the car,
he's always intrigued. He doesn't necessarily know
where he's going. You can actually see him getting
gradually more excited as he's He doesn't use any means
of medication apart from his smile He doesn't use any means of
communication apart from his smile Just to see a smile,
it just means everything. When he was just seven months old,
Kristian developed a rare form of epilepsy where
seizures are relentless. He was a tiny little
baby in our arms having His whole body tensing
and shaking uncontrollably. For four years, he didn't have one
day break of seizures. With each seizure it's killing brain
cells so he's starting to regress. For now, Kristian's seizures
are more under control. But he has been left
with profound learning difficulties. He's seven but his brain
is functioning more You have to be near him at all times
because he just doesn't have any real sense of how
to behave in a way. He doesn't have a concept of danger,
so you've got to keep It consumes your whole
life, your whole world. Five years ago, the family were put
in touch with Haven House, a children's hospice supported
by Children in Need that offers It's given Kristian
a special place to play. When you take him there,
it's like, he can't get out He's just gone in the blink
of an eye and he's He knows everyone and
everything in there. Your donations pay for Stacy,
a health care support worker. Kristian is just a lovely little
boy, so full of life. It's just a pleasure to look
after him when he comes here. He will just take your hand and lead
you to wherever he wants to go. They've got everything that
you could possibly think But the biggest thing,
really, is that he can be somewhere He hasn't got somebody behind him
saying, "Don't do that. He's got people saying,
"Here you go. With your support, Children
in Need can help more Little Kristian just has the best
time at Haven House, doesn't he? Now, one of those sessions costs
?20. ?20 to put a smile on his
lovely, lovely face. We are going to keep on saying it
but that is what We are really grateful for anything
you can afford to donate. Please donate online
@bbc.co.uk/Pudsey or call 03457 Now, Greg, we are coming to the end
of your first ever stint at presenting on Children in Need -
how do you think it's gone? I haven't broken anything,
fallen over and you haven't It's about to get better because
it's time to the big moment, you ready? Huge moment, the very first

This is the exciting bit, I love this, let's do it. Can we have our
first Totaliser of children in need 2016? Make it a good one, come on!

That is an amazing total so far - so thank you, everyone.

one week - how many people took part? Just over 700 members of all
ages. Thank you. We have had to say a quick word with you, and you
recorded a song with Tony Hadley? We did, right here, last week. And it
is number 24 on iTunes. Download it, help us get to number one! We will
be hearing some more amazing stories from our fundraisers later one. But
we must go back to our band, of 11- to 13-year-olds, School Of Rock.
I want to raise money for people in need and I kind of want to make
Pudsey. Cake sales. Helping other kids that don't really have the
opportunities and facilities we have. You feel like Superman since
you're saving people all over the world.
Graham Norton and Ade Adepitan! Good evening, everybody! Lovely to see
you! Would you look at this? Graham Norton and Ade Adepitan presenting
Children in Need, together at last! Amazing, I wonder if they can work
out who is who? We should have gone with nametags. If you have just
tuned in, you are watching Children in Need, not an old episode of The
Odd Couple. Well, we are a bit odd,
but we're not a couple. The power of Pudsey has
brought us together! Yes, and that's a lot
of pressure, Graham. Not only have we got to style this
out and pretend we're a couple of old pros who know what we're
doing, we also have to raise as much money as possible and have some
seriously big shoes to fill. So let's do Sir Terry proud and make
this a fantastic night. Here's what's coming up
in the next hour. Coming Up, Going For Gold, Its Team
Gb! David Brent! Oscar Winner Eddie Redmayne! And Craig David sings the
official Children in Need single! So, Ade, we don't know each other
very well. Do you think we should start off
with some basic questions or something?
Sounds like a great idea. Great, we know each
other much better now. Now, here on Children in Need,
we always encourage you to Do Your And every year, The One Show
take that to the extreme with their gruelling Rickshaw
Challenge. Six young riders set off
from Jedburgh in Scotland last Friday, and have been
pedalling their way 470 miles down the East Coast of England,
raising money and awareness It has been amazing, even as an
athlete, like I am, I appreciate what they do. The weather has been
an immense challenge. We are delighted to say they are about to
cross the finishing line, so we can go to Regent Street and Alex Jones.
This is the end, can you believe it, of the sixth ritual challenge. They
will be coming under the Christmas lights after the ride of a lifetime.
And what a ride it spin. Eight days of early starts. Then the
crowds come out, six young men and women, coming-of-age in front of our
eyes, giving all they've got. Even though they have less than most of
us, they've touched your hearts. And you've responded more generously
than ever before. Team Rickshaw has conquered the east coast. Now, it's
time for the West End. Yes, they are bringing it home, everybody! This is
the moment we've all been waiting for. Team Rickshaw 2016, with Andy
in the saddle. Here they come! # I'd bare my soul
to a total stranger APPLAUSE
CHEERING Come on, come on! Ebony! Wow! We're
here! You are here! Give us the total. Apparently, it's going to be
predicted behind us. Last night it was at 1.4 million. What are we
going to see? What have Britain and the UK donated? Let's have a look.
It's 3 million! Thank you, thank you come thank you
to everybody who has donated. And I mean, guys, seriously, ?3.5 million!
What do you want to say to all of those lovely people who donated?
Just look down that lens. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank
you! Thank you so much for coming to support us and thank you. You have
all been wonderful and made this challenge what it is. Thank you,
thank you, Graham and Ade, it's back to you. Thank you to all of you, and
all of the one Show team. It was incredible. Absolutely amazing.
Tonight, what we are doing could not be more simple. We are here to
support children in the UK need help. That's it, nothing complicated
about it. Some children need help, and we are all here to give it to
them. Here is James McAvoy to tell you more.
A family I'll call the Martins to protect their identity.
But what I'm about to tell you is true.
There's Mum, Dad and five lovely children.
Two years ago, one of the children, a little girl, was diagnosed
You don't need me to tell you how devastated
Their lives were and still are shattered.
And then, unbearably, just three months later,
a second child in the family was diagnosed with the same kind
She's had to undergo surgery and intensive chemotherapy just
As any family coping with a severe illness will tell you,
caring for a child in hospital is all-consuming.
The strain on the family is immense and this is a family already
Mum stayed at home to look after three of the children and Dad
gave up his job to become a full-time carer at the hospital.
The loss of income has meant that the family,
The little one-year-old is now at home but the side effects
of chemotherapy means that she's very sick.
Her sheets have to be washed constantly and her mattress
The family just don't have the money to buy new ones.
This family has been through so much.
But, thanks to your donations to Children in Need,
an organisation called Buttle UK has been able to help.
They supply emergency essentials for families living
Thanks to you, they were able to provide a grant that bought
She now has somewhere warm and dry to sleep and,
There are 3.9 million children living in poverty in the UK.
It's not their fault that they find themselves in this situation.
And every year, Buttle UK receives thousands of applications
The simple fact is, they cannot afford to fund all of them.

Our athletes obviously trained hard for the Rio Games,
but how hard have they trained for tonight?
I'm Hollie Webb, and I was a member of the women's Team GB hockey team.

to know, that finally puts us Actually, I was out in Rio
for the Paralympics No. Not even basketball. You want I
could do a few baskets. That's notreally
what I was thinking. Here's Matt Baker to tell
you about someone brilliant. Of all of my involvement
with Children in Need, the thing that I love the most
is meeting so many remarkable youngsters and I get to see
first-hand how much your donations mean to them and how they give them
a chance to make the most Youngsters like Seb,
who you're about to meet now. And, despite facing the biggest
of challenges in life, his determination to just keep
on going is humbling and I'm sure 'It's Seb and Ben up a tree.'
as inspirational as I do. Seb
and Ben, always Seb and Ben. They were always outside,
always playing. They've grown up doing
so many things together. They played football
on Saturdays, rugby on Sundays. 'Go!' Seb is very competitive
in pretty much everything. On 13th April 2014, the boys played
in their first rugby tournament. We just expected to have a good
journey back. Have a laugh on the bus
with all our friends. We were just travelling along
and then suddenly I just heard this shout of, "Stop the bus,
stop the bus!" And I turned round to the guy next
to me and the door Somebody shouted, "Somebody's fallen
out. Seb had gone under the back
wheels of the coach. The coach had run
over his right leg. I got there, held his hands
and told him I was here. He just looked at me and said,
"Am I going to die, Daddy?" Seb's injuries were so severe that
doctors had no choice but to amputate his right leg
above the knee and he had to be And they told us it's a severe brain
injury and to expect that, you know, when Seb wakes up,
he's going to be a different boy. When Seb came out of his coma,
the first time I saw him he kind of just looked at me and was kind
of like crying. He was frustrated he
couldn't talk to me. At that point in time,
we'd got no idea where to go next. After five months in hospital,
Seb's family turned to The Children's Trust,
a rehabilitation centre for children It is supported by your donations
to Children in Need. When Seb came to us he had a lot
of difficulties, a lot of problems It was so hard for him because Seb
was always used to succeeding. He'd lost a lot of skills,
but he was bright, cheeky and raring to go and very keen
to progress with his rehab. With sheer determination
and constant support, Seb started to learn many things
all over again. The Children's Trust
were by his side all the way. And in December 2014,
Seb came home. After my accident,
I wanted to get strong. But then, now I realise
it's not impossible. You've just got to put your mind
to it and you can do anything. Seb can do whatever
he wants, really. There's nobody that's
going to stop him. Playing with your brother,
playing with your mates. I missed it so much and I'm pleased
I can do it again. That's what The Children's Trust
has done to help me. I tell you what is fantastic, Seb,
you are. Look at you now, just brilliant.
As you saw, Seb was given a huge amount of support
by the Children's Trust and we need to keep supporting
You know how to do that by now I think but just in case

just introduce to you a gorgeous and brave little girl, Chloe, who is
here with her mother and brother. Clue is in remission from a rare
form of cancer of the nervous system, very hard to treat - how has
she handled what she has been through? It's been very, very
difficult, the first year especially. She was diagnosed three
years ago and she spent nine months in hospital as an inpatient having
chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery. She's proved she's a little fighter.
Brave little girl, how much did you miss your brother? A lot. He's
sitting next to you. How tough was it for you, James? It was tough
seeing Chloe go through so much pain, and sometimes I was not able
to be next to her encouraging to be strong, which she always has been.
And I'm very proud of her rouble and you can see how close the two of
them are. Karen, the charity Spread A Smile Has Helped In What Kind Of

nervous? I was really nervous. But when we started getting to the
shows, it's just a really good experience. And now you're here
raising money for Children in Need. APPLAUSE
From that, to sponge the teacher, because that is what this school in
Hillingdon did. What was the best bit wanted we got our revenge back
and we just had a laugh, really. And this is the teacher! How was it for
you? Absolutely freezing but really good fun. They all joined in and
were fantastic. It was worth all the sponging, considering you raised
?950! And with us also, you raised money streaming, gaming, on an
international level? Yes, we did. We and six others streamed games for 24
hours straight. Re-raised ?550 for Children in Need. A big thank you to
all the fundraisers and two Pudsey, and to all of you who have donated
so far. There's still time to do so. For place which is steeped in
musical history, a big thank you, and we leave you with ample school

country they have been raising money for Children in Need to help
projects all around the UK. We have decided to let the staff have well
earned break while we hold the fort! Can I have some Australian dollars,
please? Well, Australia is a long way away. Have you got the Children

Edward was six when Henry was born, so he'd spent six years as an only
child and all he ever wanted really was a little brother
When he was just six months old, Henry became extremely ill.
Instinctively I knew it was very, very serious, but I was not
expecting them to tell me he had a brain tumour and I can
just remember crying and crying and crying.
Over the next year, Henry went through a course
When Henry was poorly, Edward was very unsettled
because I was spending more and more time at the hospital with Henry.
He was worrying and it was just coming out in his behaviour.
For a six-year-old little boy, it was a really tough time.
And that's when Edward was introduced to Anne,
a play therapist to help them understand his brother's illness.
I think that was really important for him and it was just for him.

Let's see how much they raised. fundraising extravaganza.
Congratulations to everyone at Radio 2. Home of ghost of the brilliant
Graham Norton show, Saturdays 10-1. Very nice of you to mention. I must
remember to show up tomorrow. Now as much as Ade and I are proud
and honoured to be here tonight, Children in Need has always been
about one lovely man. And one man who can
never be replaced. Sir Terry Wogan is sadly no longer
with us but will never be forgotten. He was our hero and he will always
be in our hearts, particularly We know there have been many
tributes, but we wanted to make one just for his work
on Children in Need. Let's remind ourselves of how
very brilliant he was. Tonight is a very important night
for the nation's children, a chance for us all to do something like
changing for the people who need it most. We've got our usual
meticulously crafted running order. My dear, you are another shot. In
many ways can you have something of the Time Lord about you. What does
he think he's doing? We need your help so very badly.
In the years to come I'll be coming on here on crutches but they won't
get rid of me. I'm astounded and astonished at the
generosity of the British public. Remember every single penny goes to
make a difference to children's lives in the United Kingdom. Thank
you. APPLAUSE CHEERING
Sir Terry Wogan. We wanted to find a way
to honour his memory So here to tell you more is another
lovely Wogan, Sir Terry's son Lovely to have you here. It's quite
heavy, that. Could you explain to people how important children in
need was to your dad. I mean, it was his favourite night of the year.
Mainly because the money raised tonight, and throughout the year,
actually made a difference. Two people who need it. And that's why
he loved it. But on a personal note, my mother, Helen, Catherine, Alan
and I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for all the letters,
cards, and, of course, thank you to the BBC, for all the amazing
tributes. We are hugely as a family. APPLAUSE
CHEERING You're here for a special reason, I
believe this is something to do with it. Explain to us white you are here
tonight. It's actually all Matt Baker's fault. He came up with the
idea. He came up with the fundraiser of
the year award, and it is about people who have gone above and
beyond, who have raised not necessarily enormous amounts of
money, but who have showed determination and creativity, and
people who inspire other people to do great things. And have you found
a winner? Yes, we have. And this is why they've won.
When I was six years old, I was watching the Children In Need
show, I saw Terry Wogan who gave me inspiration to start
I was on holiday and I saw living statues that inspired
This year, it's bigger and better, and I'm doing 12 shopping centres.
So I've been fundraising for over half my life.

Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome the first
Sir Terry Wogan Fundraiser of the Year - Lauchlan
from West Lothian! Lauchlan congratulations!
It's quite heavy, I warn you. I think he can manage it.
Congratulations, what inspired you to get involved in this? Well, I won
Pudsey Bear in a raffle in primary one, when I was five. That year, I
watched the Children in Need show, and once I saw everything on it, I
decided to fund raise the following year. Well done, that's incredible.
How did you feel when you found out you won? Well, I only found out I'd
won this morning, when my brothers woke me up with confetti candles,
congratulating me! Listen, you should be so proud of yourself and I
know that Sir Terry would be so proud of you. Mark? Now, Dad always
said that Children in Need was the thing that he was most proud of his
entire career. He said he was just one player in a massive team, and
that you are at home were the real stars. It was always about helping
the children for him. I know he would want you to watch next film.
It's a really important one. Here's Sheridan Smith.
We say thank you to many people on nights like this but the biggest
thank you of all needs to go to the brave families who let
Many of them have lived with unimaginable pain and grief
but they want to thank the people who have helped them.
That's why this next family want to talk to you.
Theirs is a heartbreaking story, but please, please stay with it.
When Abigail was born, we thought we'd got a perfect family.
As long as they're healthy, what more could you ask for?
He looked after her, sat with her, played
The first words out of his mouth were, "She's a little cutie."
You don't expect them both to be the same,
but we definitely knew there was something wrong.
When Abigail was just one, she was diagnosed with a life
limiting condition that would cause progressive damage
It was like we were going to lose our little girl.
They told us that she had three to four years.
We had to prepare then that that was all we were going to get
and be thankful that we got her, which we was.
As Abigail's condition got worse, her family turned to Claire House,
a children's hospice supported by your donations.
Thanks to your generosity, amazing play therapists are able
to give families much-needed care and support.
Claire House did really help us a lot.
And Harrison, as well, when he went to Claire House,
he could play with her, sit with her, swim with her.
In the beginning, she could still do all that.
She'd laugh at him and he thought it was fantastic just
to watch her giggle, just because he could make her laugh.
We like to think as she got older, and as Harrison got older,
they would have been like that, they'd have been close.
Just five days before her second birthday, Abigail died.
The day after she died, we wouldn't have probably got up
that morning but we had to because we had Harrison
and even though he was upset, and hurting, he'd lost his sister,
So we just carried on the best we could.
We had time for doing stuff with Harrison.
Everything he asked - "I want to play rugby."
"I want to play golf." OK, we look into that.
You have a child and they want to do something, why say no
because you never know what's going to happen?
He started complaining of a sore leg and we just...
They called us in and said it's broke.
And I'm thinking, he's just fractured his leg, you know.
The bone had fractured because there was something growing
In April 2014, the family were given the unbearable news that
Harrison's treatment started straight away and he had
an operation to remove the tumour from his leg.
When he came round, his first words were,
And he said, "Well, at least my pain is gone."
He said to the doctor, "I know you've done your best.
With Harrison facing many new challenges, once
again, the family turned to Claire House for support.
Right from when I met him, Harrison was just gorgeous.
He was going through treatment, had a rough time.
He couldn't join in the same things his friends were doing
so we talked about things he'd like to do and we said,
one by one, we'll try and work through and
So we just chatted about anything he fancied doing and he came
So every few weeks to months or so we'd arrange a nice treat
and we did do some really good stuff.
Having a smile on his face was enough for us.
For a while I think he forgot he was ill.
It got worse and we ended up in a high dependency unit.
And even then he sat up talking and was laughing and joking.
Told us he was sorry for causing all this fuss.
There's not a minute of any day that I don't think about the pair of them
They was both happy no matter what was wrong.
She used to laugh and giggle until she couldn't and he did
Without Claire House there's a lot of things we wouldn't have done.
Here now, with the official Children in Need single -
I'd ask you to remember that wonderful hospices
like the one you've just seen, mainly depend on donations
# But I've been called into the light
# Something about you makes me stronger
# But all the lows, they feel like highs
# The tears will fall when my eyes close
# Try to say the words but make no sound
# Show me that you'll always be around
# But time let us down
