7 things you might have missed this Red Nose Day

2nd April 2019

Post Red Nose Day blues? Let us brighten up your grey old Wednesday with some of this year’s best bits.

1. We need each other more than ever

Times they are a turbulent and in our short film, we saw actor Peter Mullan pass words of wisdom to his baby grandchild – that there are more things that unite us than divide us.

2. One Red Nose Day and a Wedding

Who’d have dared dream it would happen? But it did. After 25 years, all your favourite Four Weddings characters gathered to watch Alicia Vikander and Lily James tie the knot in our hotly anticipated sequel.  Featuring a sea of special guests, this really was the wedding of the year.

And then things took a change ? Today, Team Kilimanjaro entered a long and remote part of their trek and were faced with changing terrain. With a rockier landscape to tackle - and with the effects of the ever-growing altitude taking its toll on certain climbers - our celebrities’ stamina is really being tested. .

After a week of life-threatening altitude sickness, blisters and bruises, tears and tough terrain, our team of intrepid celebrities scaled the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief. This was no walk in the park, so re-live the peaks and troughs here.

Our documentary films feature some of the world’s inspirational people who are fighting hardship to do amazing things, whether that’s a mental health support group for mothers in Somerset, a refugee programme in Serbia or fighting Malaria in Myanmar. Heroes, every one.

5. Happy Hour Live

Things got digital this Red Nose Day, as we hosted our very first hour long live-streamed show on YouTube. Hosted by Rickie, Melvin and Charlie, it brought together some of the nation’s favourite YouTubers, all doing embarrassing things for money.

6. Chicken Shop Date

There’s nowhere more romantic than a chicken shop and this Red Nose Day, a group of celebs including Love Island’s Samira Mighty, Chicken Shop Date’s Amelia Dimoldenberg and Ian Wright piled in to find love in a special version of the YouTube show. It was greasy, it was awkward and you can watch it right here.

7. sketches: bodyguard, mamma mia and more...

This year saw Alan Partridge and People Just Do Nothing tickling our funny bones. There was Bodyguard too. Not only did we see David Budd practice being intense and handsome (like he needs to), but Joanna Lumley was Prime Minister and Keeley Hawes came back from the dead.
