Red Nose Day and BBC Radio 2 Logos

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 Red Button.

The challenge

They’re taking on the longest ever dance challenge that Red Nose Day has ever attempted…more than 24 hours. To keep their spirits up along the way, they will be joined by a host of celebrity guests and familiar faces. Claudia and Tess are dancing to raise life-changing cash for Red Nose Day, which helps Comic Relief to support some of the most vulnerable people and communities in the UK and internationally.

“I'm not wearing a jogging bottom!”

Watch Tess and Claudia discuss what they're most (and least) looking forward to about their challenge.

WHAT CLAUDIA SAYS

“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!”

WHAT TESS SAYS

“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.”
