I'm so excited to be presenting this with you, because you look stunning.
I only said yes to doing this because of your laugh,
but we can't have it going on all night.
That's not funny. I love a face swap. Maybe this one... Better. Not
quite funny enough. You are not doing well here. It could get
awkward. One more. LAUGHTER That one is brilliant. That's what
our children would look like. Buy me a drink first. You are silly. This
is going to go mad, I know. Now Greg, aside from taking
on the gruelling Gregathlon like a total champ, completing five
triathlons in five days CHEERING
Thank you. Have you been
doing anything else Let's see what we've got in store
for you for the rest of the night. Still to come on tonight's Sport
Relief, the return of Frank Spencer in Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em. Get

Bay and Alan Partridge. And Clash of the Titans comes to a dramatic
conclusion with a triathlon across the Olympic Park. All this and much
more coming up tonight on Sport Relief.
All that amazing stuff still to come.
Over the years on Sport Relief we've introduced
you to lots of wonderful people living incredibly tough lives -
and through your generosity we managed to change
The three young men you're about to meet can't thank
You're brilliant. Thank you.
This is Vijay. 11 years ago he lived on the railways, scraping together a
living the best way he could. Subu was another of India's Railway
children. He fell from a moving train and had horrific injuries,
leaving him partially paralysed and clinging onto life. In Bangladesh,
Ruble spent his lives on a rubbish dump, struggling to find things to
sell for his family who were struggling to survive. Thanks to
your donations we were able to give these boys the support they needed
to turn their lives around. Vijay has left the railways behind him and
runs a successful painting and decorating business.
Subbu made a full recovery and is studying to be an electrical
engineer. After the operation, they gave life to me. If you can go to
school, you can get knowledge and wisdom.
Ruble is now at school, getting the education he deserves, and he has a
part-time job. Three boys, three lives changed,
thanks to you. This stuff works. Please do it again tonight.
All over the world there are children having to work instead

The fantastic staff at RBS have jumped headfirst into raising more
money for Sport Relief. 750 staff members are completing a daunting
cycle challenge from London to Edinburgh. They are also encouraging
their staff across the nation to take part in the Sport Relief Games.
Thousands of others are taking part in special five K and ten K runs.
They're fantastic customers are also donating money. To the good people
of RBS and the amazing British public, we want to say one thing.
Thank you. Nice to see sisters doing it for
themselves. What have the staff and customers raised?
An incredible amount of money and the generosity has been stunning so
far. Now, Alesha, it's time for the first
big sketch of our part of the show, and boy have
we got a winner for you. I'm afraid you're
going to have to put up with my laugh a bit longer Greg,
because this is funny. Sit back and watch what happens
when Jack Whitehall, takes it upon himself to try
and get his beloved England Football In the end, the German
bench get up and protest Gascoigne has had his second yellow
card of the competition, and here is a moment that almost
brings tears to his eyes. Question marks have been raised
over his temperament The referee has gone to his pocket.
It's red! It was in the goal.
It surely crossed the line. It's on by Cavani,
there is no flag here. So there you go, and Luis Suarez
put the final nail in England's World Cup coffin in Brazil
in 2014, but will they fare any In the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic
Games, I came away with a silver medal, and I came
home a national hero. Yo, barman, can we get
some drinks please? SPEAKING WITH SOUTH AFRICAN ACCENT:
Coming right up, bru. Well, I got sacked from my
last job, and it ain't No, I mean something that people
actually care about. Look, mate, you want the England
footie team to be as successful as the England cricket
team - you've got to use foreigners. We use players from
literally anywhere. Geraint Jones, born
in Papua New Guinea. Shut up!
You're as English as fish and chips. As soon as I touched
down on English soil, it disappeared, just
like that, gone. Come to think of it,
Simon Jones, from Wales, That's how we're going
to win Euro 2016, we will IN SOUTH AFRICAN ACCENT: KP,
you are a genius, player. Sort Kriss Akabusi out
with a massive Tia Maria. Economy, obviously,
as this is Sport Relief. G-Bale, G-Bizzle,
Baleo, the Old Bailey. To do that, I'm going to enlist
the help of the best player So, can you introduce me
to Cristiano Ronaldo? I'm joking.
I want you to play for England. I'm sorry, but I've
got to go training. What I'm trying to tell
you is you can't waste all that talent playing for Wales
like Ryan Giggs did. You're playing with part-timers,
footballers who are working down Think how many more
goals you would score if you were being set up
by Sterling and the Roon-dog. Those puppies aren't
going to look so bad, are they? If you come and play
for England, you are It's the trademark of a 12-year-old
girl at One Direction concert. You are also going to have
to sort out that hair. Look mate, all I'm talking
about is a little switcheroo Why don't you get one
of Scotland's players, JACK SCOFFS.
Don't be ridiculous. You're worried about this
being illegal in some way, a tabloid finding out you don't
have any English blood. Fear not, G-spot,
I've got it covered. Meet your long, long,
long lost English nan, Not according to these
forged documents. Yes, she's an actress,
but nobody needs to know that other than you, me,
and Nanna Doris here. How many times have I got
to tell you, I will never, When you left Spurs,
you became a hero of mine. Look, there's a very easy way
to get me to play for your team. I've never heard anything more
preposterous in my life. Three lions on a shirt,
mate, that's me! MUSIC: Holding Out For
A Hero by Bonnie Tyler. # Isn't there a white
knight upon a fiery steed? # I'm holding out for a hero til
the end of the night # And he's got to be
fresh from the fight Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndr
obwllllantysiliogogogoch. Please, Jack!
No. An inspired attempt
by Jack Whitehall there. Thanks to Gareth Bale
and all the stars who took part And I'm no Welshman,
but what I think Jack was trying to say to Rob Brydon
at the end of that was. Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndro-
bwyllllantysiliogogogoch. I'm nearly there. I've been trying
to learn it all day and I would really like a little singsong. Are
you up for a quick singsong? If we all sing along together, I think we
can get this. #
Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndro- bwyll-llantysiliogogogoch all right,
shut up, that's enough. Thanks, Greg. It sounds a bit like
you laughing. It sounded rubbish. It is a place! I didn't know that.
Sorry. Did you guys know that? AUDIENCE SHOUT YES
Sorry about that. Genuinely sorry. As the donations plummet.
Time to meet a Sport Relief hero who really has gone the extra
mile - comedian and all round ledgend Jo Brand.
Jo walked the entire way across the country from Hull
to Liverpool, and she's here in the studio.
But whilst we let the stand-up have a slightly longer sit-down,
I'm doing this on behalf of all the portly middle-aged women in the
country who needs to get up and live a bit longer. I'm really fit in both
senses of the word. The top of my leg is hurting. I am living with it.
Hello, deputy mayor. She asked me to come and she was blaming me. She is
in pain, she is tired and she has a long way to go. I can do another day
without crying. Do you want this? I would love it. It isn't raining yet.
What if it's all about?! I am absolutely exulted. It was so
fantastic to walk across a massive swathes of the country.
Congratulations, Jo. And to see how generous people are. What a woman.
She's walked the walk, now she's here to talk the talk.
Give it up for the truly heroic Jo Brand!
Jo, what an incredible achievement, and the show last night on BBC One
was so fun to watch. I mean, for me it was. Did you watch it again? No.
My favourite bit was at the end with all the fireworks going off and the
photographers and everything and you just went silent. That was it. That
was the most excited and I have ever been. And he recovered? No. I have
almost. I have physically recovered but mentally I'm not so sure. What
was the hardest part? The hardest part was when I finished it not
having fried breakfasts any more. Oh, they were lovely. Actually, I
was having 6000 calories per day so I decided to save all of those and
have a 42,000 calorie meal at the end of it. As you do! It was lovely.
The support from the public was incredible. As you said in the film,
you have inspired a lot of people to get out there. I hope I inspired
people who wouldn't normally do something, like old, tired,
knackered, set up old women, like me. -- fed up. And old men. Just to
get out there and do a bit. I don't like to hear myself say this, but it
is quite good fun, if there is a bakery on the way. So try it. We
think you are amazing. Jo, it's time to reveal how
much you have raised Jo Brand, your Hell of a Walk has
raised a hell of a lot of money. Let's take a look at
exactly how much... You have raised: amazing! Wow! You
know how much good that money is going to do. I am gobsmacked. And
due to everyone and all the fantastic people I met and sorry to
all of the ones I was grumpy too. Right, it's time to say another big
Sport Relief thank you. Since the beginning of Sport Relief,
Ryman and Robert Dyas have been raising money. Both of them have
been selling these fantastic pens and donating 70p from every ?1 spent
on them so, every time you buy one, you are helping somebody less
fortunate in the UK and around the world. Critical, a? Yes! Their
amazing staff have taken it on themselves to raise money for Sport
Relief, helping to raise huge amounts of cash. So, to all of the
amazing staff and customers, we have one thing left to say.
A huge thanks to everyone who bought one of these Sport Relief
pens/football clackers/tiny bookmarks/chopsticks.
Let's find out how much the Ryman and Robert Dyas staff
Now, getting a good education and then moving into work
and becoming self-sufficient is crucial for lifting children out
of poverty and helping them fulfil their potential.
And the great news is all of the money from tonight
that we earmark for that kind of work will be matched by the UK
Government up to ?10 million, which will help transform the lives
of young people across some of the world's poorest communities.
So, a really big thank you to the Department
for International Development, and to all of you watching
for helping change so many lives for the better.
OK, I thought I knew a bit about refugees.
I was fortunate enough to be sent to Jordan White Sport Relief to look at
the refugee crisis. Sport Relief asked me to go two weeks ago before
I did the triathlon. I was finding out some of the places the money was
spent in some of the places they spent it on and it turns out I
didn't know much at all about it. This is my first time in a refugee
camp. The thing that has struck me the most, immediately, is how
desolate the landscape is. This is a desert. It is really isolated. It is
really cold here. And the rows and rows of these houses they are
endless. It feels really oppressive. It looks very temporary. And yet
people are here for years. It's just desert and hills and rocks. It is
like Mars. This camp has been these peoples home for nearly a year there
-- nearly a year now after they fled Syria.
How did your life change when the crisis started?
It is so... It's such a hard... I'm still trying to process that story,
but it's so tragic. And unfair. There are so many stories here, of
loved ones killed, homes destroyed, and lives devastated. Ordinary
people going about their daily lives who have lost everything. We can't
turn back the clock. What's happened has happened, and the journey is the
families have been on up until this point, are done. We are where we are
and they are where they are. What we can do is help them from this point
onwards. And believe me, they need help. Sport Relief funds the only
nursery in this refugee camp. It's a vital project that gives children a
safe place to learn, to play, and to be kids again. Just because you
might think this is too big, but that doesn't mean that what you
donating right now will not make a difference, because it will. What
the turn it is? It's too big, let's not bother? Absolutely not. Dig
deep. Donate what you can. Anything you can give will change lives, and
you give kids their childhood back. Thank you.
So, in concrete terms what can we do to help?
Well, as you've seen, that fantastic nursery lets those
It costs ?40 for a child to go for a week.
Anything you can do to put a smile on their faces would be amazing.
Since going out there I've become very passionate about this cause,
speaking to people all the time, and I'm proud of that story is that we
told on Radio 1. There is a lot of stigma attached to the refugee
crisis, but what we need to remember is that whatever you think of the
political situation, the government, whatever, its people and humans
caught up in the crisis. You have to remember that, do not dehumanise
them. It's people like you and me, families like your family and my
family. It's people like that, people who had jobs and hopes and
dreams. They were at university, and then they woke up and it was all
gone. They are people living lives. They are not dissimilar to our lives
and our families. They like One Direction, and they have Facebook.
It's not an alien part of the world. I have been there and seen it and
it's happening right now. It's very important that we don't forget about
these people and write them off, because they feel like they have
been forgotten about. I think it's time we stepped in and gave them a
leg up. Imagine waking up tomorrow morning and you have to leave your
house. Grab whatever you can,
and never come back. To donate ?10 just text
the word YES to 70010. Texts will cost ?10 plus your
standard network message charge. If you want to know more details
about how Sport Relief makes its grants and manages your
donations, all the information is available at
bbc.co.uk/sportrelief. OK, now, last year, you may have
seen some of the biggest names in football taking part
in the Dizzy Penalties online craze in support of the
Global Goals campaign. The challenge is to score a goal
after spinning around You haven't seen this. I look like
an idiot. Great. Never ones to shy away
from a Sport Relief challenge, myself - a dedicated Arsenal fan -
and John Bishop - a lifelong Hello there, and welcome to the
Sport Relief easy -- dizzy penalty spectacular. One goal, one ball and
plenty of falling over. Spin around the football 13 times, and then try
to get it as close to the goal is you can. A healthy rivalry to play
this out. Liverpool fan John Bishop, and Mr Arsenal, Greg James. John,
you have attempted some amazing things for Sport Relief. This is the
hardest thing I've ever done, without any shadow of a doubt.
Because I've just eaten a burrito and there's a good chance of me
being sick. Greg, you smashed the Greg Haslam. Any skills you picked
up that could be handy? When it's done, I will always cry at the end
of some exercise. That's what will happen at the end of tonight. --
Gregathlon. Time to toss the coin. Heads! It's tails. First or second?
I think John should go first. Ladies and gentlemen, John Bishop can take
his position by the ball. It doesn't mean a thing if you ain't got that
spin. Start on my whistle. One, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, faster, come on, eight, nine, ten... He's losing it! 11, 12, last
one. Ready when you are! LAUGHTER Come on, John, for your team. For
your family. Yes! John, talk me through that, what was
it like? Can you get up? It was everything I dreamt it would be. I
can't wait for you to do that. Greg James, you've seen it. It was
murder. You scored! I also fell over. Arsenal out of the FA Cup and
Champions League, time to grab it back tonight. Thanks for bringing
that up. It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that spin. One, two,
three, looked at the speed, four, five, six, slowing down a bit,
seven, eight, nine, ten, three to go. 11, 12, 13. Ready!
What a hideous mess. Greg, are you all right? What went wrong? I forgot
where my feet were. Did I score? Sadly not. You did well. Your
champion of dizzy penalties, John Bishop! CHEERING
That's it. The burrito is safe. Goodbye.
That was brilliant. What an idiot. I loved it.
Please welcome back, my dizzy partner in crime,
APPLAUSE I'm not surprised you hadn't seen
it, I would be embarrassed. You did do the Arsenal kit proud. We've all
had a brilliant evening tonight, but every journey begins with one step,
and every big event starts with one idea. Tonight I want to introduce
you to a man who has done more to change the world than you can
possibly imagine. He's been with Comic Relief as an organisation for
26 years. 14 years ago he came up with the idea of doing something in
between the Comic Relief years, and Sport Relief was born. He had to
convince people it would be a good idea, and tell people to get
involved. They have done. In the time he was with Comic Relief, they
have raised ?1 billion, ?300 million has been raised from Sport Relief.
To put that in context, we talk about ?5 buying two mosquito nets.
That's 120 million mosquito nets. And that ignores the fact that 50%
of Sport Relief stays in the UK and is spent close to why you live --
close to where you live. He started Sport Relief 14 years
ago, but tonight he's retiring. Please welcome the true
Sport Relief hero - Kevin, for the benefit people at
home, and I know because I've asked you this, because you have talked
all of us into crazy things, what made you come up with the idea of
Sport Relief? I'm a big sports fan, I love football. Let's clarify, you
support Man United. It's the only trophy Liverpool will win this year.
There was the opportunity to use the power and passion of sport to try to
change peoples lives and make a difference. We did Comic Relief
every two years, so the opportunity existed the year to bring in sports
men and women and comedians and entertainers, to continue to do the
great work we do. The need is endless, but progress is there all
the time. By getting sports men and women involved, we could get twice
as much as just Comic Relief. The opportunity was there. So why not do
it? Has it reached your ideals, gone beyond your dreams? The money raised
is huge, but not only the money raised, but the involvement of
people. People doing the mile on Sunday, getting off their couches.
You have changed people's lives. People getting involved in sport who
haven't done it before. Was that part of the plan? It was part of the
plan, but it has gone beyond my dreams. You can often have ideas in
life, and the idea is the start, but turning that idea into something is
really difficult. I'm faintly embarrassed to be here tonight
talking about my role in it, because you have to bring everyone else
together. All the artists and entertainers who give your time to
it, all the viewers in the studio and at home. All the people who have
donated ?5, ?10. It's a great coming together of community in the
interests of generosity. Billy Connolly said on Comic Relief that
people talk about compassion fatigue. But he said there was no
such thing. It's like saying there's too much love in the world. The
brilliant thing is the British public demonstrate every year there
in enormous capability for compassion and love. It has
fulfilled my dreams and more. It's gone beyond what I could have
imagined. There has been a great coming together of everybody who has
taken part. We have a video that has somebody up Sport Relief.
Sport has the power to change the world.
It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does.
Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.
For the last 14 years, Sport Relief and you,
the British public, have been working together to change lives
Half of your donations fund projects here in the UK.
The other half go to the poorest countries in the world.
In Kenya, we are supporting a project that uses football
to teach leadership skills and teamwork.
And it inspires children to get an education.
For young people with disabilities in the UK, sport can unlock a whole
It makes me feel confident and I make new friends.
Your money supports street children across the world,
giving them a safe place to sleep, and, through sport, the chance
In Bangladesh, drowning in floods is a major cause of death
in children, so Sport Relief taught children to swim
Here at home, a lot of older people can face loneliness and depression.
Sport Relief supported this project, where sport makes them feel part
Across the world, your donations are inspiring people to get active
I want to be the best boxer in the world.
That's not a bad reason to support something, is it?
This is your chance to be part of something amazing.
So please, help us to do even more and be as generous
Kevin, that sums it up. Over the years, we have done our best for
you. Tonight, your last night as the chief executive of Sport Relief,
perhaps you can talk camera free and tell people your own message. I
suppose the thing I would like to say, one thing is thank you
enormously for the incredible work you have done over the years in
donating to Sport Relief and making the changes possible that we have
been able to help with but, more importantly, everyone gives up their
time for this great cause to help change lives. We have seen Michael
Crawford mention it, Greg was just talking about it, but repeating it
makes it no less true. You can make changes. We have seen how ?5 will
pay for two mosquito nets which children could sleep under tonight
and it would help save their lives. ?70 could help educate a child in
Sierra Leone to go to school for a whole year, and that year's
schooling could make the difference between living in abject poverty or
moving out of poverty and getting a job and living a fulfilled life. The
thing I would like to say to everyone watching at home is, if you
get the chance tonight, could you make one more donation? John talked
about my dream when I started Sport Relief. My dream tonight is to have
the biggest Sport Relief ever. I have had so many people say it over
the years, but the number will be on your screens. Or you can text. And,
please, give generously. I have seen the work and I know the changes it
makes. It has been one of the privileges of my life to be able to
go and meet people in the field and to know their common humanity and
potential. This is all about helping people fulfil their potential. Lenny
Henry famously said on one of these nights, forget geography, everyone
is your neighbour and, if your neighbour was in trouble, you would
help them out. Please tonight, make one more donation. Thank you.
Ok, please give it up for John Bishop and Kevin Cahill.
OK, as you know the Sport Relief weekend is a huge event up and down
the country with so many fantastic people wanting to give their time
to help raise huge amounts for those who need it most.
Not only are you, the great British public, going
above and beyond but we've had some of the biggest names in sport
queuing up to be part of the night, not just in front of the camera
but they're helping us out backstage too.
For example Mo Farah offered to be a runner on the show
Andy and Jamie Murray are serving behind the bar.
Amir Khan has been working hard in the box office.
And Team GB's curling team are keeping the place spotless.
The ladies have asked me to tell you that they are available to hire
for Private Functions, Corporate parties and Christenings.
I'm not even joking, they asked me to tell you that. That is a true
story. Thanks for the offer. Random but true!
Ellie Simmonds is on wardrobe duty over at the Aquatic Centre.
That one is mine. That would suit you.
David Ginola is helping with hair and make-up.
Chris Kamara is operating the autocue.
Kriss Akabussi, who else, is keeping team spirits high.
You are going to be record breakers! Come on! Move, move!
And Formula 1 legend David Coulthard's taking care
I've told you, I run, swim and cycle everywhere.
Ok, please give it up for our Sports Star Crew.
OK, time now to go trackside for the fifth and final Clash
It's a triple whammy, it's the Triathlon.
Welcome back to the Lee Valley VeloPark. Come on! It all comes down
to this, the final event. Let's remind you of the scores in Clash of
the Titans at the moment. Team Flintoff with eight points. Team
Redgrave with seven. They have a 1-point lead going into the final
event, which gives them a one second head start in the team triathlon.
The winner of this one will be crowned champions of Clash of the
Titans 2016. To explain how the event will work, there is the
commentator, Simon Brotherton. The winner of Clash of the Titans, we
will know it at the end of this race. It starts in the Velodrome and
reaches a crescendo in the Aquatics Centre. One above each team will
race each of the three disciplines. Let's have a quick look at the
cause. -- one member of each team. As soon as each crosses the
finishing line, to Invictus Games helpful is will run across claim
Elizabeth Ebdon park, and then the swimmers will swim a 50 metres
length of the pool. The first team to finish will be the winners. We
will take you to the cycling. As soon as that is finished, we will
hand over to Andy Jamieson for the running and swimming. Andy is
waiting for us now. He is ready to go and so are we. Back to you now,
Dan. We will see a full list of Ramos, riders and swimmers in a
moment. -- runners, riders. Let's learn a bit more about the
incredible men running the second leg of the triathlon. In 2008 I lost
my left leg in Afghanistan in a roadside bomb. I took part in the
2014 inaugural Invictus Games, where I picked up four gold medals and one
silver medal in multiple swimming events. I am Paul Vice, an ex-royal
Marines. I lost the use of my arm and in Afghanistan. Since then, I
had my leg amputated and this is next challenge. Paul and Mike have
been training hard with Olympic double gold medallist Dame Kelly
Holmes. Go, go! Well done, guys. While they get their breath back, a
special arrival from a familiar face. Halla we? -- how are we? Come
to join us? The fact that Invictus athletes are taking part in Sport
Relief is huge for us, whether it is running or cycling. They are
inspiring a new generation. I'm thrilled that the Princes trust has
a part to play. What is the trick, to pace yourself? People tend to go
too fast on the first 100 metres. Paul has had his leg amputated since
I last saw them. To see him running now is great. And Mike, to send him
round the track, that is fantastic. Prince Harry really cares about us.
It is nice to see him stirring song but he didn't bring his blades. I am
going to reveal that... I am not going to reveal. All I am going to
say is that it is pretty close and good luck on the night. But
remember, don't go off too fast. Given their competitive edge, it
will be a great race. I will give it everything I have got, even if I
have to crawl over that finishing line. I can't let anybody down
especially myself. That is when Harry Met Kelly, Paul and Mike. I
think we are ready to get this started so let's hand over to the
commentary team. I think we are ready for this, Rob?
The two teams are limbering up for the race of their lives. It is a
battle of the broadcasters as BBC newsreader Sophie Raworth takes on
radio one's Clara Amfo O. Raring to go outside the cotton box, Invictus
athletes with royal approval, Mike Goody and Paul Vice. For the final
leg, for Team Redgrave, Dan Snow and, for Team Flintoff, ready
Flintoff. One of these men will clinch victory. The difference in
points will be converted to seconds for this final decider, and it
couldn't be closer, a Team Flintoff were one point ahead, first to go on
the track with a one second head start will be Sophie Raworth. And
she is away, and the second beep is for Clara Amfo O, so BBC One news
leader Sophie Raworth in the red. On the other side of the track, in the
blue, Clara Amfo O, the mid-morning present on Radio 1. A much better,
more solid start by Sophie. This event is so short you just don't
hold back. It is about pure speed, get out and on the gear. What a
welcome sound the bell will be for Sophie Raworth and Clara as well.
They are almost halfway around the last lap. Sophie Raworth opening up
a bit of a lead. It looks like she is enjoying it as well. It may only
be two laps, but it is starting to hurt. There will be a gap, and an
advantage for Team Flintoff. Let's go straight outside. Out to the
breezy freedom of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. And we have
our two heroes from Prince Harry's incredible Invictus Games. Here we
go, this is Mike Goody. He is off. And now the commando who refused to
die, the ex-Marine corporal, Paul Vice, in the blue. This is Mike
Goody now. Dame Kelly Holmes said, don't go off too fast. It looks like
they have gone off relatively well. This is Mike Goody. Just before we
started, I was having a chat with Dave Henderson, the Invictus team
captain, and he said this isn't just about Flintoff against Redgrave it
is about the Royal Marines against the royal air Force. Mike Goody, the
RAF, and Paul Vice, the Royal Marines. This looks very comfortable
indeed. Maybe a 20 metre gap now. Paul Goodie leading -- Mike Goody
leading for Team Flintoff with Paul Vice just behind him, but tracking
him well. Also, Henson said, one key factor here may well be that Paul
Vice only lost his leg 18 months ago whereas Goody lost his maybe four or
five years ago. I can tell you, at the Aquatics Centre, we have Ore
with Freddie and Dan Snow. They are ready to go. I have with me the guys
who could yet make all the distance -- only difference. Freddie
Flintoff, your man is in front just now, so are you in visualising
winning? Mike is doing well but he is catching him. It is going to be
tight. You might have deployed it time back, Dan. Do you have it in
you? I am hoping... Oh, Paul is coming through. He is doing me a big
favour! It is really tight. Back up to you.
Was really tracking Mike Goody there. As he gone off to quick? It
looks like Goody is really starting to go. As he timed it really well?
They are both struggling a bit, a bit of an incline here, and then
they go down and alongside the canal. Is Paul Vice starting to
tire? Mike Goody starting to pull away again. Look at these two
athletes. Here is Mike Goody. He must have about 200 metres to go at
this stage. 200 metres to go, come on, Paul Vice at the back. He has
run very well indeed. He isn't out of this at all yet, the Royal
Marines. There is the cyclists. What a great race that was. 50 metres to
go, just 50 metres and they are entering the building. Mike Goody is
leaving for Team Flintoff. As soon as they pass the finishing line,
these runners can go. Flintoff is off. Flintoff on the left-hand side
and Dan Snow on the right. Dan Snow in the blue, Flintoff in the red,
and Flintoff looks very good. These conditions should really suit him.
It is overcast and it should be suiting a fast bowler. He has a fast
bowler's struck. Look at the effort here. Fantastic effort from Freddie
Flintoff. Coming back is Dan Snow, coming back very fast. Can he make
it on the far side? Get his head down. Five metres to go and it looks
like it may well be Freddie Flintoff who is going to win the 2016 games.
What a fantastic race it was, and so close in the end. Utterly brilliant,
brilliant it was. Freddie Flintoff was slowing down at the end. Dan was
catching him. Down in the blue. What a brilliant swim that was. Well, the
final five metres, and it really was very tight indeed, but Freddie
Flintoff anchoring his team to triathlon gold and with it winning
Clash of the Titans glory. Ladies and gentlemen, let's hear it for our
Clash of the Titans champions, Team Flintoff! Don't go anywhere,
Freddie, I want to grab a quick word with you. Could you feel him
breathing down your neck? I didn't know where he was and then he was
right next to me. He is like a fish. On the final leg, Dan Snow, you may
it as tight as tiger. Two races against Freddie, two defeats the me.
He is too good. Didn't he do well, ladies and gentlemen? Not quite good
enough, though. Ladies and gentlemen, your champions, Team
Flintoff! Let's chat to Paul, you had a
catch-up to make, but you made good work of it. Yeah, I thought I might
get closer, to be honest. There was a head start but I thought it was
doable. I got him on the bridge and thought the tank was running pretty
empty. I just got on his heels and try to give myself the best shot.
Mike, he was bearing down on you. But you got a tank in you as well.
How was that run? You must be pooped. I'm hanging out. I didn't
know where he came from. Out of nowhere, I didn't hear him coming, I
thought I had to dig out something. Well done to these two. Well done to
the two team captains. It is Team Flintoff who take the Clash of the
Titans title. We will be back very shortly for a very special victory
ceremony. Don't miss it. Wow. They think it's all over,
and, well, it nearly is, but not before an official trophy
presentation hosted by Jo Brand and Martine Wright
in true Olympic style. There's also a chance to see that
brilliant Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em special starring
Sir Bradley Wiggins, Sir Paul McCartney, Andy Murray
and Boris Johnson to name but a few. Now, recently Danny Dyer
went to Sierra Leone. And I have never seen
anything like it in my life. At this very moment I'm embarrassed
to be a human being. How it gets to this stage
where children are running There's a kid over there,
he's got flip-flops on. There's glass, there's fires
and he's just got flip-flops on. And he works on this rubbish
dump every single day. In fact, he's never known
a life outside of it. Because Usman and his family
actually live on the dump. The money, I buy food
for them so we can survive. The money, the father buys food
for them to survive. TRANSLATION: I want to
leave this dump site. Hassan, do you think it
will ever happen for you? TRANSLATION: He's not really
thinking if that will ever happen The powers that be, whoever
they are, forget about all that, we can actually come together
as human beings and help Just from sitting where you are now,
the difference you can make I know they seem
a million miles away. You can make such a difference
from such a little thing. So please, get these people out
of this, this just ain't right. We've got to come together
and make this happen. If you've never done it before,
make this the first time you've It seems just too massive a problem
to do anything doesn't it, We're working with a project
who take little kids like Usman It's the only way

Right, it's time now to crown the rightful winners of Clash
Let's head over to the Aquatics Centre to congratulate the winners.
Thank you very much, welcome back to Clash of the Titans 2016. What a
night we have had. The velodrome, I don't think I will ever recover from
the intensity of the wrestling. You know what I'm talking about. Temp
Tameka, I know she was on the losing side, but the double splits. It's
been sensational, seemed Russell Kane and Will Young go head-to-head
underwater was the stuff of dreams. Or nightmares, depending on how you
look at it. It was quite incredible. We have seen quite a few things we
will never forget. Some good reasons and bad reasons. One team sadly fell
just short of the title. Go wild one final time, runners-up, Team
Redgrave. Guys, didn't quite work out. Steve,
nevertheless it must have been a proud moment to lead this motley
crew. I have said before, they have trained for the last two years, and
that isn't quite true. But maybe the last couple of days. I'm very proud
of the team and they have done wonderfully well. What a finish as
well, so close. You have to give it to Freddie's team, they did
wonderfully well, just a fraction better. Dan Snow nearly did it.
Paddy, can we talk about the wrestling? Let's. You got in trouble
for the slapping. I got points docked for the slapping. He did an
illegal move but didn't get his points opt, not that I'm
complaining! I lifted him up, and it was like lifting up a piece of
steel. He's ripped. Superb for him. Kane,s The real heroes tonight, Paul
and Mike? The fantastic run he had, just amazing. I thought, this is
going to be a fantastic finish. But Paul fantastic. It's lovely to hear
from you. I'm afraid you are losers, the lot of you. Let's hear it for
Team Redgrave everybody! CHEERING AND
APPLAUSE Now, ladies and gentleman, time to welcome back our heroes for
tonight, our Sport Relief 2016 Clash Of The Titans champions, Team
Flintoff. CHEERING AND
APPLAUSE Well, it was exemplary stuff from
your team, but from yourself as well, kicking off with a win,
finishing it off with a win. A great night. The team have performed so
well. In that swim at the end, Mike gave me the one second I needed
otherwise Dan might have called me. A fun night. He's still got it in
Harry, oh, my goodness me. That was pretty intense. You're a wrestling
superstar. There are ladies and gentleman, who would love to see
your victory ceremony revealed again. Do we have that? We've got
time, if you wouldn't mind. Your Friday night starts here,
follow that Dazza. I doubt it, mate. My love story was with Fred, I
enjoyed it rhythmic gymnastics. Really enjoyed it. Great fun. Raised
a lot of money. Fantastic evening. Incredible team effort. Ladies and
gentleman, team Flintoff. CHEERING AND
APPLAUSE To present the Clash Of The Titans trophy it's a delight to
welcome two women out here to give the trophy away. She was the gun
starter tonight, first up Jo Brand and one of the heroes of the
Paralympics for 2012 Martin Wright. -- Martine.
APPLAUSE You've been there, seen it, done it and won it. I wanted to ask
you, Steve said lovely words about Paul and Mike, what did you think of
their particular effort this evening? I think all of them have
done absolutely fantastically well. It's such an honourable charity. The
amount of people they're going to be helping is amazing. So well done
guys! Congratulations. Thank you. Jo, we've seen plenty, rhythmic
gymnastics, synchronised swimming, wrestling, which are we signing up
for in 2018? The wrestling definitely. Freddie Flintoff is
laughing, but he will be the first to go.
Our organisers have got their hands - He's out. It's time for you to
present our trophies and flowers to the winners. I'd love to. Pick up
the cup, Jo. Ready to go wild everybody? The winners of Clash Of
The Titans 2016, it's Team Flintoff! CHEERING AND
APPLAUSE Go on Team Flintoff, you deserve a
true victory lap. Off you go, go on! Soak it up, every single minute of
it. # We are the champions, my friend
# And we'll keep on fighting till the end... #
As they enjoy their little lap of honour, thank you so much for
watching Sport Relief Clash Of The Titans 2016. I hope you agrow with
us, so many highlights, so many things we will remember for quite
some time. That is for sure. So much to come on Sport Relief tonight and
still loads of time for you to get donating. Make sure you do. So much
more to come. From Dan and myself... Good night.
What a night. Congratulations to Team Flintoff. I'm jealous of that
good time. Now, I do want to remind
you that 50% of the money you donate tonight is spent
right here in the UK I'd like you to meet a fantastic
little boy called Jason. He's been through a lot
in his short life, but luckily he had some help -
funded by you. This is a project called
Sebastian's Action Trust. It is funded by Sport Relief
for children who have life You can just make loads of noises
and I kind of like it. I think you might know
what this room is. This room is, unfortunately,
the girls room. Now 12, Jason had
a tough start in life. As a toddler, he was
in hospital regularly. And at the age of four
he was diagnosed with a very rare Jason fought the battle of his life,
and with the support of Sebastian's Action Trust,
he survived cancer. But unbelievably, the family
were rocked again. In 2011, Jason went
to bed and woke up the next morning, tried to get out
of bed and get down the stairs. He just could not
move his feet and his But even after a biopsy
and multiple tests, doctors You just think, how much more can be
thrown at my little boy? When a child has a life-limiting
condition, families can be affected
in a number of ways. As well as emotional stress,
they can also face financial That is why, through your donations,
this project is there to support children like Jason
every step of the way. They focus on the whole family.
They've awes been there to help. When Katie is there,
from the trust, you know that Jason You know he is happy,
which is a big deal. My job today is to
support Mum in any way that she needs and simply to put
a smile on Jason's face. Without a diagnosis,
the future is uncertain. Please help us to support
Jason and other children I expect it's past your bedtime,
Jason, but we're sending you our love and we think
you're brilliant. Now, you can see how much he loves
going to Sebastian's Action Trust and what a huge difference
it's made to his life. And no matter how you're donating,
when you call tonight and our operator asks if we can
claim Gift Aid on your donation, if you are a UK taxpayer,
we'd love it if you could say yes! It means the taxman gives us
an extra 25p for every pound It doesn't cost you a penny extra,
so please make sure you say "Yes". And you can, of course,
go online, or to donate ?10, Texts will cost ?10 plus your
standard network message charge. OK Alesha, in the true spirit
of tonight, I think it's time I'm left out of the sport tonight.
You're sporty. I am. How about a little head-to-head challenge, Sport
Relief style in here. I'm up for it. Are you up for it?
CHEERING It's all very well at the Aquatic
Centre they have the sport. We need sport in here. I will let you choose
the first discipline. Darts. Great. Why darts? Why not? Are you any good
at darts? Never played before in my life. I'm really good at darts. I
accept the challenge. Brilliant. I'm very competitive, so you better
watch out. Seriously. The reason I said darts is because of Gabby Logan
and those who played for Sport Relief.
180! Let's play darts for Sport Relief.
To left the final at 7-7. For the title.
Please welcome the 2016 Let's Play Darts for Sport Relief
Lovely to see you both. How exciting. Hello everyone! I'm
excited you're here because I love a pun so much. Do you, I'm not so keen
myself. I like a pun, yes. You are darts royalty, but to be here
tonight - you had to beat royalty, Tindall. Well he's married to
royalty, isn't he? I met the Queen and she said, "God save our gracious
queen. I said, you've changed your tune. My goodness. Will you
officiate as we take on our first challenge. Of course, it would be my
pleasure. You are not wearing the right costumes. If you'd like to go
off and get dressed. I will stay here and do one minute of
sport-related puns. Yes to the puns! Start the clock. So I was playing
football on a plane, it was amazing, I was running up the wing... So I
went to a - it's going to be a long minute. Saw a football match in
Japan, they did marshal arts, he said there's two minutes of ninjery
time. Tennis, I was playing tennis with a napkin. Don't serve yet. All
male tennis players are watches. For example, Goran, even he's a witch. I
have a cat called Minton, when he eats shuttle cox I say, badminton. I
went to the swimming baths, I said is that the local swimming baths,
where you are calling from. How That's it, the time's up. Please
welcome back Greg the mole James and Alesha the lioness Dixon.
This is it. It's over here. I have to unveil the tarts pendulum. Let's
hear it, ladies and gentleman. All you have to do is burst as many
Sport Relief balloons as possible in 30 seconds. Ladies first. We're
going to make it tricky for you. Can the man in the brown coat come on,
please. Where is he? He's going to make it harder. There we are.
Away you go. One, two... Three! Four! You are good at darts! Six!
Come on, you can get seven! Seven! That's it. Well... Very, very good.
Never played it before in my life. I am hearing on the APs I am not
wearing, actually, it was nine points. Excellent! -- on the ear
piece. Can we have a look at one of those moments in slow motion?
Fascinating! There we are, that was just balloons moving slowly. Wasn't
that dramatic, viewers?! Now if you want to have a go, Greg? Can I ask
you why they call you the mole? Yes, because moles are blind. So I will
attempt this blindfolded. Literally, usually take a step back. Are you
ready? Yes! When the music starts, you see what you can do! Round a
bit... When the music starts, you are off. Nine to beat. Excuse me,
his foot is in front of the line. Thank you, Greg. Careful, this way a
bit, please. Actually far more dangerous than we were all
expecting. Your foot is going over the line! Time is up! Can I just
check? Are you all right, mate? He is OK down there. Can we have
another look at the slow-mo of some of those fatalities? There we are,
once again. That really isn't something else, isn't it? So, I've
think the winner is Alesha! The wonderful Tim Vine, everybody!
That was fun, wasn't it? I will let you off with the blindfold. I am so
sorry, did I nearly hit someone down there? Would you like a balloon?
Greg, in the spirit of all things competitive,
you have three guesses as to where I was last week.
OK. Erm, the North Pole?
Nope. Ooh, I've got it...
Er, yeah. How did you guess?
I was in fact in none other than Buckingham Palace,
home to the Queen, finding out all about the great work
of Sport Relief and the Queen's Young Leaders' initiative.
The young leaders programme was set up two years ago. The programme
helps improve and transform the lives of amazing young people across
the Commonwealth. This is Nicole. After growing up in care, she
involved on a business course with a local project and now works for the
same organisation, helping young people like herself. And this young
lady signed up a journalism course and realised that she is passionate
about writing and is now working for an online news site. Blair,
despite... She is now a fully qualified youth worker. It is not
just young people at home that this programme is helping. There is a
fantastic project in Zambia as well. Young people are producing their own
radio shoes which means they can get their voices heard and play a bigger
part in their community. Over in the South Pacific, there is a brilliant
in the ask Solomon Islands which is making sure young people have
brilliant chance to find work. So, all across the Commonwealth, there
is life-changing work taking place next to the dedication of these
truly brilliant people. Queen'syoung Leaders, we salute you. You have got
a Buckingham Palace voice. I think I became more posh because I was at
the Palace. It is so not me! Anyway, it is your money doing incredible
work, changing the lives of so many young people.
And the fantastic news that the Queen Elizabeth Diamond
Jubilee Trust will support us with ?1 million this Sport Relief
to help more young people, like these, across the Commonwealth.
Or if you do, go pour yourself a drink and come straight back.
Still to come tonight, Little Britain
The epic return of Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em, and Alesha and I go head
Time for a quick thank you to all BBC Local and National
radio stations for their support, and especially to 5 Live
for their Battle of the Five-A-Sides, Radio 1
for the Gregathlon, and Radio 2 and 4 for their great coverage.
Greg, you really did excel yourself by doing something truly fantastic
for Sport Relief this year - five triathlons in five days
I don't know. Seriously! Five triathlons in five cities in five
days. It is so not normal. I am panicking. Here I go, cycling, and
the rain has started. Time to do the run now. This is dei too. We are
currently driving to the location in Cardiff. The undercarriage is
going... Day three, Glasgow. That was just... Sheffield, famous for
being built on seven hills. Looking forward to those. Here I am, doing
the swim and the run today. One more swim. Let's just hope it goes
slightly better than Glasgow. I don't know how the legs are still
going at they are. Ten miles and we are done. Five triathlons in five
days in five cities. I watch it back and genuinely it
does not feel like me. I am so impressed. I am sure everybody is
wanting to know, did you read in your wet suit? And the rest! I don't
know what I even mean by that! Yes, you do, as all triathletes will say.
But it was open water swimming. To keep yourself warm, you have to
urinate. It is just a fact. I am doing it now! On a serious note,
what was the hardest day for you? The Wednesday, you saw it, getting
out of the water in Glasgow and I just could not really get up. We
were in a different city each day and travelling between them. The
routing was not great so we did Belfast to Cardiff to Glasgow to
Sheffield and then Sheffield to Norwich. Not a lot of sleep going
on. By the Wednesday I was just a mess. And you had some great company
along the way. We did. Amazing support. And the support from the
cities was incredible. From the Radio 1 listeners as well. Thank you
to all of you, personally from me, for going with the story and going
with it and donating as well. It was a mad week and it really ran away
with us. Now, I need you to explain a picture. What is going on here,
seriously? OK, I feel like... That screen is so big in here! OK, that
is a professor. Oh, yes, it is Greg. Did you not recognise him? I was not
looking at his face! Oh, my goodness! I do feel that bit should
be blurred. Craig Whyte is a man who has done all of these Sport Relief
and Comic Relief challenges, and he really helps me with all of that
kind of stuff and he is great for morale, as you can see!
All right Greg, It's time to reveal how much you raised.
It is a staggering amount of money, it is ?1 million that was not there
before. If you have donated, then thank you, you have done so much
good. Thanks to the whole Radio 1 team and everyone who supported it.
It was just the most ridiculous week. But I would do it again. That
sort of hardship is nothing compared to the hardship going on right now
around the world, and that money will help those people. It is going
to make such a Prince. Please keep supporting us
all tonight by calling 03457 910 910 or go online or send
us a quick text. Texts will cost ?10 plus your
standard network message charge and 100% of your donation
will go to Sport Relief. You must be 16 or over and please
ask the bill payer's permission. For full terms and conditions
and more information How about, if you give ?10 now, by
text, I will never show that picture again! We will get it deleted!
OK, here's a dreadful truth - there are more than 150 million
children living on the streets in the world.
Just stop and think about that for a moment.
11-year-old Nelson ran away from home two months ago. My father died
because he was sick. I came to look for my own food. And when you got
here, were you scared, were you frightened? I was frightened because
it is not safe. I could not sleep at the good place. What would you want
your life to be like? I needed to go to school and learn more. I would
like to be a doctor. But instead of getting an education, Nelson spends
his days searching through rubbish for plastic bottles to sell.
Despite having nothing of his own, Nelson is also taking care of
younger boy who has just arrived on the streets, a ten-year-old. They do
not want to live like this. They have got dreams. Nelson wants to be
a doctor. Colin has told me he wants to be a pilot. Both of them have
left their families because that was the only option they could see just
they are good kids, really hard-working, honest kids. Just like
your children. At around 8pm that evening, the boys decide it is
bedtime. So where do you sleep? We sleep at this place. Here? Yes. What
are you sleeping on? These sacks that we are using. Just this? Yes.
As Nelson and Collins are settling down, some bigger boys turn up.
The younger boys are pushed around the corner, forced to sleep by the
busy road. Night night. I actually can't bear it. That is a
ten-year-old and 11-year-old boy, erm, tucked up in a sack. On a
concrete pavement. And I want to tell them it is going to be all
right. There are thousands of children across Kenya like Collins
and Nelson sleeping wrath on the streets every night. Sometimes you
see these problems and you think, that is too big, we cannot solve it.
But the amazing thing is that if a lot of us, and I mean a lot of us,
do something small, we can make a huge difference. Sport Relief makes
a difference. So pick up the phone, give what you can. And make sure
their future is brighter than this. Thank you.
This is happening now, to those children, on those streets.
We're all a team. All of you watching now, if you've been
watching since 7pm. You're part of that team. If we all think about one
thing together, the power of that is incredible.
It costs just ?5 to pay for a whole month's accommodation for a child.
It will help children like that find a safe place to say.
It's a great team to be part of. Call 03457 910 910 or go on line
bbc.co.uk/sportrelief. We're going to make it even easier
for you to give some cash tonight. All you need for this
bit is a mobile phone. I've got one.
That last film, my heart is breaking from watching that film. Tough to
watch. It's so simple, the team power, it works. Please, do it. A
simple text message will change the world. It will change lives. As
Clare said, if we all did it, everyone watching right now, if you
picked up your phone, mine is a flip phone, pick up your phone right now,
you can do it. What is that? Doesn't matter, doesn't matter what phone
you've got. Who loaned you that for this? This is not a loan. I wish it
were a horrible joke. Oh, dear. This is it. We are all in this together
this evening. If we can harness that power we can save lives. Let's do
it. Have you got your phones on? Did they take them away from you?
Correct. They asked you to turn your phones off. I was checking! Good. I
was being sneaky. Get them on. Seriously, get them on. Lock the
doors, no-one's leaving until they've texted. Let's all do it now.
Phones out at home. If you've been watching and enjoyed any of it or
touched by any of the appeal films that you've seen, Danny, or Marvin
and Rochelle or Michael Crawford when he gave that incredible speech,
if you've enjoyed any of tonight, please, do it now. Get your phones
out and let's give it a go. Texts will cost ?10 plus your
standard network message charge Now, it's time to say another thank
you, with boxing hero James De Gale When fighting the common cause, you
need people to come together. You need the support of your team around
you. You need dedication, hard work and of course, courage. And no-one
knows that more than the better staff and customers who have been
running events all over the country, raising stacks of cash for preef.
All customers have been swimming, running and climbing and it's made a
monumental difference. The amazing staff have raised money by
completing a 500-mile cycle, a ten-person swim-a-thon and a
marathon walk through Bath. There's one thing left to say... Thank you!
Let's find out what the staff and customers have raised.
This night just can't get any better, can it,
We have something huge on the horizon. Earlier you chose darts.
You won. I can't argue with, that but I was blind folded. I'm choosing
to challenge you Alesha Dixon by the classic medium of... Lip sync
battle! Please welcome our Sport Relief
Lip Sync Battle Host, APPLAUSE Congratulations on team
Flintoff. Thank you, that was something else doing synchronised
swimming, that was the first time a chiefed the lift. When I went down
to the floor, I grazed the surface with my buttocks. That clinched the
perfect ten. Thanks for having me, guys,
great to be here and I'm honoured They're both potentially winners
here. How are you feeling? I didn't think it through, because this is a
pop star. Yeah. Yeah, but you're a nerdy music swat. I know all of
them. I've got all the albums. That's on
your side. That is true. What about you, can you take this? I don't
know. I'm worried about what he has up his sleeve. I think it will be
hillarious. Just an unnecessarily lanky arm. While they go off to get
battle ready, here's the brilliant Little Britain,
starring the beautiful Peter Crouch, TOM BAKER: Football is one of
Britain's most popular pastimes. In his office, sports agent
Mickey Perm is trying to strike a deal for
one of his footballs. I don't play football myself,
because sadly, I don't have a foot. Ah, Crouchy, my
favourite new client. I'd get you back in
the England team, didn't I? Well, your numero uno agent has
only gone and done it. I can't wait to be
back with the boys. I've got you a place
with the Lionesses. I've got someone who can
help you with that. My name is Emily Howard,
and I am a lady. She is going to teach you how
to behave like a lady. I must say, I was rather
surprised when I heard In my mind, ladies should play
ladies' games, like cribbage Crouchy, do you want to play
for England again or not? TOM JONES: # Well, she's all
you'd ever want # She's the kind I'd like to flaunt
And take to dinner # Well, she always knows her place
She's got style, she's got grace # Whoa-oh-oh
She's a lady # But she's never in the way
Always something nice to say # I can leave her on her own
Knowing she's OK alone # Whoa-oh-oh
She's a lady # She knows what I'm about
She can take what I dish out # But she knows me through
and through # And she knows just what to do
and how to please me... # Are you sure that they'll believe
that I'm a lady? What do you think
you're playing at? I think you might have rather
given the game away. You can give me
the outfit back later. Thank you to David Walliams
and the Lionesses Will you now please welcome back
to the stage, CHEERING AND
APPLAUSE You're going to be up first ah, leasha. Bad news, babe. --
Alesha. Hills can be funky, it's all
erosion. You're up first I'm afraid. OK. How are you feeling? No saliva
in my mouth. I was saying to Greg, back stage, it's like trying to get
into fifth gear really quickly. I'm worried about what this one's going
to do. Me too, I'm having a panic attack at what's under that jacket.
Me too. Will you hold my mic for me. Of course. Don't need it, it's lip
sync right? Show some love for the one, the only, Alesha Dixon.
# Try and play the role and the whole crew will act up
# If you've got the feeling jump across the ceiling
# Mugs is a funkfest Someone's talking junk
# And then I'll take the punks home
# Than there's cops at a Dunkin' Donuts shop
# Sure enough I got props from the Kids on the Hill
# I came to get down I came to get down
# So get out your seats and jump around
If you die of dehydration, Greg might win by default. Are you ready?
Ladies and gentlemen, he's a weapon of mass musical
destruction, it's the drivetime demolition devil,
# I was wondering if after all these years
# You'd like to meet to go over everything
# They say that time's supposed to heal ya
Please give it up for Greg James, everyone!
That was amazing. That has made my night, you are in -- you doing that!
Not being funny, they would have worn something a bit better than
that. Honestly, how did you get my nan's outfit out of the wardrobe?!
Greg, did you just do that live on BBC One? Knock some points off for
that. Definitely. We have to decide who the winner is. Cheer for whoever
you think has one or the purveyor of horrible
geriatric humour, Greg James! Alesha? Greg? Ladies and gentlemen,
Greg James takes it! I am so sorry! Thank you having me on. Thank you
the coming on! Ladies and gentlemen, Russell Kane! That has brightened up
my evening. We hope you guys enjoyed that as much as we did. We have got
loads more entertainment coming up. coming up for you tonight,
but right now, we want to show you how we transformed the beautiful
Peter Crouch into Petra Crouch - it's behind the scenes
of Little Britain. Not sure what I am doing here, to be
honest. Full of anticipation. Today we are filming a sketch for Sport
Relief, involving me, and Todorov, with Peter Crouch. The idea is that
Peter Crouch wants to get back in the England squad. Your agent has
only gone and done it. Thank you so much, I cannot wait to be back with
the boys. Not the boys, I have got your place with the Lionesses! I
have got someone who can help you with that! Oh, no! So,
what we are filming now is me in training to become a lady. David
showing me what to do. The walk, and trying on wigs and dresses - believe
it or not! We have just done a rough croquet
sequence involving some close orderly work. And then the rest of
the day is mainly close orderly work, I would say. Peter has been a
revelation. When you write a part for somebody, you do not know if
they are going to be able to act or not. Sometimes it just goes a bit
wrong. He has been really game and really fun.
Hello, nice to meet you! Hello, ladies! Who are you? I am Patra, and
I am a lady. Most ladylike! Who is the new girl? She is gorgeous. It
has been a great pleasure. Looking at the costumes, I got really
lightly. Referee! In those plimsolls, I think he has had a
better touch on a Saturday afternoon when I have seen him! Petra is
better than Peter, to be quite honest! Fair play to him, I mean,
quite awkward having your first conversation with Peter Crouch when
he is dressed as he is today. But he has been great with the girls and
the team. It has been a really fun day. I have had a fantastic day. I
can safely say that you will not be seeing Petra again any time soon.
But yes, very enjoyable and hopefully raised some money for
Sport Relief. You can download that
brilliant behind-the-scenes package as well as the full sketch,
plus Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em and loads of other Sport Relief
funnies by going to BBC Store And by buying them, you will be
giving money to Sport Relief. And this time, it's one
of our finest ever sprinters, Iwan Thomas, who has
stepped up to the plate. This year, FitBit are really
stepping up to the plate to raise money for Sport Relief. They are
encouraging you, the great British public, to register each time you
take a step towards the big Stepathon. And you guys did enough
steps to reach the moon and back, five times! I had better get a shift
on! The amazing staff have been taking part in a selection of
back-to-back training sessions. General manager Gareth Jones has
been leading from the front by doing the relay challenge to help raise
even more for Sport Relief. To all the generous staff, and you, the
amazing customers, from us at Sport Relief, an amazing thank you. Hang
on! Time to reveal how much the FitBit
staff and customers have raised. How do you look amazing again?
Because you were not here for that link about five minutes ago.
Anyway... In this next film,
Marvin and Rochelle Humes went to Kenya,
where they found out there's still so much more to be done
in the fight against malaria. We knew malaria was still very much
a problem here, but nothing could prepare us for the number of
children who were struggling with this terrible disease.
Yes. The symptoms of malaria?
Sometimes they arrived, they don't...
And they got readmitted. And she started vomiting.
You do not want to cry in front of them, because it is their children,
you know? I have never seen children look that
sick before in my life. Malaria is not something you give a second
thought at home. You know it exists, but it is very far away from you.
The scale that it is on here, it is insane. Nine out of ten of those
children had malaria, the symptoms, convulsing, fever, vomiting,
diarrhoea. So sick. Just so lifeless, to see a child that looks
so exhausted... In Africa, a child dies of malaria every two minutes.
It is easy to feel powerless, but we are not.
But a mosquito net only lasts five years, and a mosquito net
with a hole in it, is NOT a mosquito net anymore.
You've already done so much, but as you can see, we need
Just one ?10 text. That's four nets.
To donate ?10, just text the word YES to 70010.
Texts will cost ?10 plus your standard network message charge.
And 100% of your donation will go to Sport Relief.
And Gregles, we have the small matter of our head-to-head
challenge to deal with, isn't that right?
Got any ideas what is coming? I am exhausted so I can only imagine. But
I am apprehensive. But I think it will be a good one, right? Yes, it
will be Willie good. But look, while we've been gassing
away, people all over the country have been donating, and it's only
fair that we find out how much their incredible
generosity has raised. I'm so excited - this
is our first totaliser! You are joking, aren't you? And we
are not even done! That is unbelievable. I am actually
gobsmacked. That is amazing. A huge thank you to every single one of
you. What a night this has turned out to be. It is incredible.
Unbelievable. Thank you so much if you did pick up the phone, if you
did text and go online. You are the best and you are making such a
difference. The team is working, so let's keep it going.
And coming up soon, we have some comedy gold
which is going to blow your socks off -
But in the meantime, here's a little something
It is all right, Betty! Watch out! I have had a bit of trouble, Betty!
Sorry! Bloody kids! Hello, Mr Wiggins!
Now, 50% of your donations go to fund projects here in the UK.
And the good news is that the Government is adding
?3 million to tonight's pot to specifically help projects
which support vulnerable women and girls.
This next film is from one of our nation's great institutions,
All you fans out there will remember the deeply moving storyline
about Stacey and her struggle with extreme postnatal depression.
Here's Lacey Turner - the actress who plays Stacey -
to explain that for many women, this condition is all too real.
Giving birth to a child should be a truly wonderful time in a woman's
life and one of life's most joyful experiences.
But, sadly, as I have learnt in my role as Stacey,
The truth is that every year, here in the UK, around 70,000 women
won't find that becoming a mother is the fairy-tale they dreamed of.
I can't keep Arthur safe every minute on my own.
70,000 women won't find the sleepless nights and constant
care a baby needs plain old exhausting.
They'll find it much worse than that.
They will become ill with postnatal depression.
In more extreme cases like Stacey's, more than 1,400 women will suffer
from the more severe version of the illness,
This is truly frightening, for them and for their families.
Arthur is not yours. He is God's.
Stacey, why would they want to take Arthur?
He's outside. He's waiting.
Sadly, like with so many mental illnesses, women are scared
They think they should feel a certain way.
They're new mothers, after all - why does it seem that everyone else
It's thought that the real number of sufferers is higher,
but that women are too scared to come forward and talk about it.
They're scared of what people will say and they're scared
I believe it's absolutely real for you.
And I think it must be tiring and extremely stressful.
If you think you're suffering from postnatal depression,
the best thing you can do is tell someone you're feeling overwhelmed.
Talk to a doctor or health visitor or a friend.
After Arthur was born, I heard HIS voice.
He only talked to you after Arthur was born?
Sport Relief is supporting the maternal mental health alliance
to raise awareness of the importance of this issue, as well as projects
which aim to support mums, dads and their families to recover
from maternal mental health and move forwards.
I think we're going to need a clean outfit.
We want you to know you're not alone, you have nothing
You can be treated and things can get better.
Help us to continue to support women and families, who are suffering
unnecessarily at what should be one of the happiest times
To donate please call or go to the website.
The stigma around illnesses like postnatal depression hasn't
gone away yet, but things are slowly getting better.

depression, to attend a session to help start the road to recovery.
Please help us to support those mums at the time they really need it
by donating online at bbc.co.uk/SportRelief or you can

Usain Bolt, Laura Trott, Sir Chris Hoy, and so,
tonight Greggy, we are going to set It's a bit pants really, well,
more like swimming trunks. We'll be setting the record
for the most pairs of swimming And to help us, please
welcome our official adjudicator from Guinness World
Records - Mark McInlay. The rules are simple, you have to
seconds to pull on as many pairs of swimming trunks over your trousers
properly as possible. Take my shoes off? You can. Get comfy. They need
to cover the buttocks and I need you to remove your jacket. Lovely. As
you ask so politely I will. We're getting very serious now. Are
you ready? 30 seconds? You've got 30 seconds.
Good luck, Greg. You can do it. This is easy compared

-- Final Countdown. Three, two one - time! Is he allowed the last one?
Come on, Mark, there's pain going on here. Bruised my undercarriage. How
did he do. In order to achieve the record, you needed to pull on ten
pairs of swimming trunks within 30 seconds. In the 30 seconds, you
managed... Just nine. How does it feel to have just missed
out? I mean... Thanks Mark. Yeah, Mark, it was all going so well. This
is nothing, your ego has still got fine. I thought you did really well.
Thanks though, Mark. Thank you very much, Mark.
Well done, Greg. Keep those on for the rest of the
night? They aren't coming off - actually do you want to take them
off for me? Come on, let's go. Thank you, guys.
What an image. Now, you're about to meet a very
special boy, called Milan. The most powerful earthquake to hit
Nepal in 80 years has killed... Along with large-scale loss of
life... My heart is really moving now. Everyone's running through the
streets. In April 2015, a powerful earthquake, along with 120
aftershocks killed almost 9,000 people in Nepal, leaving devastation
in its wake. Eight-year-old Milan's life was
changed forever. This pile of dirt and rubble was once his home.
Before the earthquake proinjects funded by Sport Relief were already
providing education for vulnerable children in Kathmandu. Now more than
ever, they need help. They will get the support to turn their lives
around. Your money really will make all the difference. So please give
what you can tonight. Please call: Or go online. Thank you.
Milan is just one of over a million children whose lives have been
Just ?10 could pay for a vulnerable child living
on the streets of Nepal to access health care services for a year.

Vodafone - you have all been extraordinary, thank you.
Is that it? Is there one more? Is there not another one? Yes!
Right, I think I need a lie down. Greg, can you take over please?
It is 2016, this is degrading. Yes, he has got nice arms, but are you

his breasts! My oldest friend, thank you!

So, we just heard the theme tune to Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em. I think it
is time, don't you? I think it is time!
You were supposed to be here half an hour ago.
You're going to miss our daughter's big race.
I have just got to pop in and get Jessica some food luck flowers.
You know how flustered I get lately, what with me
Men don't go through the change, Frank.
Well how else would you explain my recent
You clearly have not been driving very
long, or you would have more consideration for a man
What are you doing on the roof of a car, on a bicycle?
Well, if they had a proper cycle lane, I would not be up here!
Do you know how much this car is worth?
And might I suggest that you take your driving a bit
I am guessing you do not know what I do
You may have a new car and fancy yourself as king of the road,
As my mother always said, mirror, signal, manoeuvre.
If you can't drive without a fuss, then give up your car,
My daughter is in one of those races.
4.99. Thank you.
But I'm sure he will get here one way or another.
Would it be possible to borrow your helmet?
In the interests of health and safety,
Have you just arrived in our country?
Oh, good. Then you've not got far to go.
I am going through the change, though.
It has been nice chatting, but I must dash.
So, if you will just tell Ringo, I won't be able to get there.
First, I, David Walliams, swam the channel.
That is why it is a great honour for me to unveil this
I don't know, I have had a bit of trouble,
Frank - Jessica's race starts in one minute.
They should have told me which way round to go.
The important thing is, you realised.
But I am sure he did his best to get here on time.
We are nearing the end of this world record attempt from Sir Bradley
And it is truly unbelievable from him.
If he can keep this up, the record is on.
Just three laps away from the record, Sir
Bradley is going to break it yet again!
Somehow, despite the unscheduled interruption, Sir Brad
I will give you a bloody hot flush, get off!
COMMENTATOR: What is happening here?!
That is an absolute disaster for Bradley Wiggins...
Coach David Brailsford has got to be fuming.
I have never seen anything like this before.
Jessica - I'm so sorry I missed your race.
It's just a shame you didn't hear everyone
Although I always think, if you haven't got anything nice
to say, you shouldn't say anything at all.
Because I really need to get to the hospital.
All things considered, I think it's been a really lovely day.
Even when I done a whoopsie on the carpet?
Mind you, I'm going through the change.

We have shown you a lot of films tonight, but one in particular seems
to have affected you profoundly. We're going to show it again one
last time. Here's Danny Dyer in Sierra Leone.
Malaria is not a problem we have to deal with at home. It doesn't enter
our heads. Here it's a major problem. It's getting better
slightly, but nowhere near enough. Nowhere near enough. In Africa, a
child dies from malaria every two minutes. The simplest way to prevent
this happening is for children to sleep under a treated mosquito net.
Yet in Sierra Leone, less than half of children under five have access
to one. It is not good to see babies coming
here with these cases. Some, when they come
they are very sick, really It is like, malaria,
severe malaria, severe malaria, severe malaria,
severe malaria. Day after day, week
after week, month after month, this will keep going on,
year after year after year. Seven-month-old Mariatu who has been
brought in by her mum. For a baby this young,
contracting this terrible Once malaria has
taken hold, there are And she has developed painful ulcers
in her mouth. It means she is unable
to breast-feed and has become But the sores in her mouth
make it hard for little Without food, she is
becoming weaker and weaker. For so many of the mothers in this
ward, the reason why they are here at all
is simply down to poverty. With barely enough money for food,
for Mariatu, it means there was no Malaria is still one of the biggest
causes of death in children under And yet every day,
these beds fill up with children for fighting
for their lives. Many of them will never make it
home. With every breath, this little girl
is fighting for her life. And with every moment
that passes, all her A fiver for two nets,
that's all it is. Don't be the one that
