What date is BBC Children in Need taking place in 2014?
It’s now been confirmed that this years live appeal show will air on BBC One on Friday 14 November, starting at 7:30pm.
This time around BBC presenters Sir Terry Wogan, Fearne Cotton, Alex Jones, Nick Grimshaw, Matt Baker and Tess Daly are encouraging Britain to get baking.
To help raise funds for the charity appeal, these six celebs will each be backing one of our countries favourite cakes. They’re each asking the British public to pick their team, then become a baking hero by selling their personal cake creations.
The selection of six are:
Team Lemon Drizzle – Sir Terry Wogan
Team Carrot Cake – Fearne Cotton
Team Victoria Sponge – Tess Daly
Team Chocolate Cake – Nick Grimshaw
Team Fruit Cake – Matt Baker
Team Battenberg – Alex Jones
So if you fancy getting involved in the 2014 fundraising activities, chose a team and get baking!
Don’t worry though if cake making isn’t your forte as there are plenty more ways to get involved. A line-up of familiar faces will also be offering you the opportunity to become either an Entertainment, Fancy Dress or Challenge Hero.
This year will also see The Great British Sewing Bee Children in Need celebrity special airing on BBC Two in late October.
