Red Nose Day 2017

"MAKE YOUR LAUGH MATTER"

24 MARCH 2017

Red Nose Day 2017 presenters

In the run up to this year's Red Nose Day, there were a whole host of 24-hour challenges raking in the cash.

First off, DJs Scott Mills and Chris Stark undertook an epic LOL-a-thon, telling joke after joke on air all through the night. Then Radio 2's Sara Cox boogied to a whole 24 hours of 80s tunes, raising well over one million pounds. A YouTube first, famous vloggers also took part in a 'RedOut', spreading an important message about vulnerable young people.

The raucous night of TV was led by comedians including Greg Davies, Joe Lycett, Miranda Hart, Romesh Ranganathan, Warwick Davies and Luisa Omielan presenting some hilarious sketches. Ed Sheeran and Kurrupt FM joined forced in a daring new music video, Take That and James Corden tried to break America in carpool karaoke and the cast of Love Actually reunited for a heart-warming ten minute special.

All of that, plus the generosity of the British public, saw Red Nose Day 2017 pull in over £76 million!
