Last night, Pudsey took over the Strictly Ballroom and this year four
Olympians swapped their tight spandex for sparkling dance gear.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, on your marks, get set,
dance. CHEERING Going for gold tonight
are for medal winning They have been limbering up
backstage and are ready to go. So let's welcome them -
our Children in Need stars! Gold medal-winning canoeist
Joe Clarke and his partner Janette Hockey gold medallist Hollie Webb
and her partner Neil Jones. Taekwondo silver medallist
Lutalo Muhammad and his And two-time gold medal-winner rower
Helen Glover and her They lit up Rio this summer
and are hoping to light up this All four of our couples will compete
in one special group performance, but they'll be judged individually,
and only one couple will walk away with the Children
in Need Pudsey trophy. And not only are they rising
to the Strictly challenge tonight, they're also hoping to raise
lots of money for thousands of disadvantaged children living
right here in the UK. There's no voting tonight,
as our Children in Need champion will be chosen by four
very important people. The athletes trained hard for the
Olympic Games, but how hard did they train tonight? I am Hollie Webb and
I was a member of the Team GB hockey team. It was the greatest moment of
my life. I probably should not say that. It should have been when I got
engaged. I'm Helen Glover, and I'm two-time
Olympic rowing champion. Glover and Stanning defend
their Olympic title! Steve and I got married three
weeks after the Olympics. He did Strictly, actually, in 2014 -
he's really, really intrigued I'm Lutalo Muhammad,
Olympic silver medallist In my Olympic final, I was leading
up till the last second. Each time I do watch it,
I do feel some of the same emotion. I was so close to being
Olympic champion! I mean, I don't cry or anything -
I'm far too manly for that. I'm Joe Clarke, I'm a kayaker,
and I won gold in One of the first things my mum said
to me was, "When are Training's
going really well. The harder I try, the more
confused I'm getting. I'm really scared that my mind's
just going to go blank. Really nervous - probably more
nervous than I was at the Olympics. She's worked me really hard
and never given me any rest so hopefully it's worth it
in the end and I can win Dancing for the Pudsey
Glitterball Trophy, MUSIC: The Edge of Glory
by Lady Gaga So they are choosing
our champion tonight - let's find out if the judges
think our athletes are on the right track
with that performance. Well, may I just say first of all,
thank you so much for giving Craig, our athletes are of course
incredibly fit, they're also Well, yes, it did, as a matter
of fact, and I'm very proud of them But I'm going to be talking
a little bit about Hollie. I'm going to say, if I could ever
play hockey, darling, You are absolutely
amazing at that. Well, I can't believe,
actually, all of you, how much But I have to say, I couldn't
take my eyes off your Divine lines that you made,
lovely lunge at the very end. So who will be crowned
Children in Need champions? Tonight, the judges will make
a group decision, while they confer, On behalf of all the judges, Len,
as head judge, can you please tell May I first say, if they gave out
medals for commitment and effort, you'd all be gold medallists,
because you were brilliant. But we have come to a conclusion,
and our winners and Children in Need Oh, I don't
believe it! You came so close to
winning gold in Rio. I just want to say a big
thank you to the judges, And of course to my lovely
dance partner Karen. Brilliant, thank you so
much for taking part. A huge thank you to all our couples
and to you at home for We'll be back very soon,
but in the meantime... That was brilliant! Thanks to
everyone at Strictly and of course, those fantastic Team GB Olympians.
Well done, dies! Still to come on Children In Need's best bits, music

now, he was standing right in this spot, looking good and sounding good
last night. Singing this here's Children In Need single, it is Craig
David. # But I've been
called into the light # Something about
you makes me stronger # But all the lows,
they feel like highs # When I'm with you
I can hear them singing # The tears will fall
when my eyes close # Lay me down
# Don't let my feet touch the ground # Try to say the words
but make no sound # Show me that you'll always be
around # But time let us
down Every year, the cast of Eastenders
do something amazing the Children In Need and last up was no different.
The residents of Albert Square when back in time for a musical
celebration of the very best of iconic 80s films. It happened right
here, and let me tell you this, it will take your breath away. Oh,
yeah! MUSIC: Take My Breath Away by
Berlin. # Give me time, I'll make you forget
the rest # I've got more in me
# And you can set it free # I'm going to learn
how to fly # I'm going to make
it to heaven # Light up the sky
like a flame # I had the time of my life,
and I owe it all to you # Don't be afraid to lose
control # You're the one thing
I can't get enough of # Because I've had
the time of my life # Jack, get back, come on before
we crack # Jack, get back, come on before
we crack # Jack, get back, come on before
we crack Woolford has never looked so Glam
and that is what Children In Need is all about, raising money while
having the time of your life. The other part is about coming together
to help disadvantaged children and young people in every corner of the
UK. This is a film about Macs and how his best mate Chloe has
transformed his life. -- always. 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. You can also make a donation online.
Still to come, music from the Children in Need children's choir
and a sketch from Eddie Redmayne and friends. First, an early Christmas
present. An appointment with the doctor, and I mean Doctor Who. A
scene from this year's Christmas special.
What is happening? What are you doing?
Special agent Dan Dangerous from Scotland Yard.
They have institutes all over the world but always
New York is not a capital city, is it?
You don't need to point out the mistakes, that is not what you are
for. 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. Tell them you shot us
in the back in self-defence. We'll be laughing all
the way to the slab. Face me
now. It's like someone
knocking on the window. We are on the 100th
floor. The window, like everything,
is built to withstand a blast equivalent to 4
nuclear explosions. Please understand it is against my
personal code to cause lasting harm to an individual, however, light to
moderate injuries are fine. Will the dock to get out of that? You will
have to wait until Christmas to find out -- Doctor Who?
Next Rob Brydon with a special episode of Would I Lie To You? Good
evening and welcome to a 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 Wow.
Yes, wow, indeed. 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, Adit will play the tune,
and if it's not 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 I'm going with Jack
and saying it's true. That noise signals time is up
and it's the end of the show. In real life,
lying is a bit like me. I agree with Rob Brydon, honesty is
the best policy. Every year on Children in Need we have a lot of
fun in the name of helping disadvantaged children all over the
UK. This is the story of Byron and how your kindness enabled one boy to
make a very big splash. Learning to swim is something every
child should do. And five-year-old
Byron is no exception. He has swimming lessons once a week
and he's doing so well. But for Byron, learning
to swim is tough. He has cerebral palsy,
which makes it hard for him And that's where
Sally-Anne comes in. She's a specially trained swimming
instructor funded What does she teach
you? Have you seen an improvement
in Byron since he started swimming? He couldn't use his limbs
independently of each other. The next stage for Byron
is independent swimming. And I do believe he will be
able to achieve that. At home, Byron doesn't
have the freedom he has in the pool and he misses out on doing simple
things with his younger brothers. But when he is in the pool,
Byron not only gets fantastic exercise, he also gets special time
playing with his whole family. It's just really nice because Byron
is in a lot of discomfort and gets in a lot of pain so to see him not
necessarily pain-free but being allowed to
play with his brothers, I think it's amazing that something
so small like being in a swimming pool with your family can make
people so happy. And it's because of your donations
that Byron and other children To donate... For more information

OK, still to come, Eddie Redmayne gets his wires crossed in the world
of witchcraft and wizardry. But first, one of the most uplifting and
inspiring moments of every Children In Need. 1577 children, nine towns
and one amazing performance. This is the Children In Need children's
choir. # Sometimes in our lives
we all have pain # We know that
there's always tomorrow # So just call on me, brother
when you need a hand # I just might have a problem
that you'd understand # So just call on me, brother
when you need a hand # I just might have a problem
that you'd understand # If I have things
you need to borrow # For no-one can fill
those of your needs # If there is a load
you have to bear Is exactly what Children In Need is
all about, people coming together from all across the UK to do
something amazing to help others. This is a film that is a great
example of how the money you donate can bring hope and happiness into a
young child's life. This is Kristian's story.
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 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
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 healthcare 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
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.

Please get behind this year's Children in Need.
Sorry, I didn't mean to bother a Paralympian hero,
I'm just trying to get through to Pudsey Bear, please.
Look, when we went to the interview for this job, after we lost our last
one, you said that you knew how this all worked.
Yes, thank you, that would be lovely.
What do you mean, "Let's try this one"?
Nonnatus House, Sister Julienne speaking.
Semi-invisible, beard, squirts ink out of his
Let me guess, let me guess, let me guess.
Gelatinous, large hat, loves custard!
Destroyed three galaxies with his megasonic death ray!
Right. Then no, that's not him.
Well, I don't know who you're talking about.
Thank you very much for your call. Have a good life.
How on earth did we manage to patch him through to a transdimensional
Might be because I spilt my banana milkshake on the console.
Orange and raspberry Victoria sponge sandwich cake.
Sorry, I didn't have it that time, but I think I've got it...
The dispute over pay conditions has been formally settled.
You'll have to be quick - I'm reading the news.
We can't seem to find Pudsey there.
Have you seen him, by any chance?
I think you've got the wrong number.
That's great, but that's quite enough cake, thank you.
I'll just pop it down here, should you want it.
Simon, hi there, it's Eddie Redmayne here.
I like you, but I'm afraid it's a big fat no from me.
Come on, make it quick - I'm busy.
Well, it's obvious what's happened here.
You've clearly been put through to me by the Twit Twins
You've made fundamental errors and shown a total lack
of leadership, and for that reason, you're fired.
Oh, was he talking about us or Eddie?
Eddie, hello, we're struggling to put you through -
Don't put me on hold, please don't...
# And on Thursday and Friday and Saturday
I wish these guys would hurry up, man.
I think we'll have to try another one.
You've reached Major Tim Peake.
Tim Peake? Yep.
I thought that you were back on earth now.
It's just, I really miss space.
Oh. Well, don't let me disturb you.
Hello, you're through to National Treasure Graham Norton.
Mel and Sue keep putting me through to the wrong people.
Oh! I can help you with that.
Enormously. Thank you.
I'm full. I don't want anything more to eat.
Things are really hotting up in the Premier League.
Technically, we have no idea what we're doing.
Get off! My leads!
I am just trying to get hold of Pudsey Bear.
Oh, and you're saying that Jamie Dornan is some kind
of superfan who has his room covered in Pudsey teddies and Pudsey posters
I'm really not saying that. I was...
Well, you know, you're wrong, OK?
There's a very high chance this next one is going to be Pudsey.
As it's Children in Need today, we are taking requests all day long.
What is your name and where are you from?
Um...my name's Eddie and I'm from London.
I'm done. Thank you very much.
Mary thought you might like a slice of Battenburg cake.
I'll just leave it here.
Hello, Britney Spears speaking.
Who's Pudsey? I...
No, I didn't actually get your number, I was...
Oh, right, no, I get it. Basically, it's Mel and Sue's fault.
I get that. Er, they are...
Eddie, this is definitely Pudsey.
