Our longest ever danceathon is over

Claudia Winkleman & Tess Daly have completed the longest ever celebrity Danceathon in Red Nose Day history, and danced for more than 24 hours. A huge thank you, Claudia and Tess. They did it to support Comic Relief - show your support and make a donation.

A decade has passed since our last danceathon


It takes two to tango

This Red Nose Day, Claudia Winkleman & Tess Daly are going above and beyond their usual duties as hosts and doing some dancing themselves. A lot of dancing, actually. You can follow the challenge on BBC Radio 2, and watch them strut their stuff live on the BBC Radio 2 website and the Red Button.

“Stop. Having. Fun!”

Watch Tess and Claudia in training. They'll be dancing the longest Danceathon in Red Nose Day history, so they'll need all the training they can get... 


“I’m so excited to be taking on this epic Danceathon challenge with Tess. I know it’s going to be hilarious to watch because we’re pretty bad dancers - I’m not very good at standing, let alone dancing!”


“I am so proud to be supporting Red Nose Day with Claudia, however I’m not sure what either of us were thinking when we agreed to the longest ever Danceathon challenge! We were worn out during our first choreography session so it’s no doubt going to be a tough challenge.”
