Dermot O’Leary smashed it for Comic Relief with his 24-hour day of dance. His non-stop jiggling, bouncing and banter on live TV raised a cool £1 million.
Oh what a night of TV it was too! The Vicar of Dibley got punchy in a hilarious bid to become a bishop, Daniel Craig and Roger Moore sounded seriously off-key as 007, while Stephen Hawking transformed into a super-size robot and attacked David Walliams in Little Britain. The laughs kept coming thick and fast with phenomenal performances from Lenny Henry, John Bishop, Davina McCall and Claudia Winkleman, Russell Brand, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Stephen Fry, David Gandy, Miranda Hart, Sheridan Smith and The Chuckle Brothers.
All that helped Red Nose Day 2015 raise an amazing £99,418,831. And if that wasn’t enough the night brought Comic Relief’s fundraising total, over the last 30 years, to more than £1 billion!
