Children In Need 2022: Glamorous Alex Scott and Mel Giedroyc front the annual telethon

The 2022 Children In Need telethon returned to BBC One on Friday evening, live from the BBC studios in Salford.

Mel Giedroyc, Ade Adepitan MBE and Jason Manford appeared on stage as hosts for the annual show, alongside Chris Ramsey and Alex Sott- with the latter announcing ‘Welcome to Children In Need 2022’.

And during the charity show, a slew of famous faces took part to do their bit for charity – including Strictly stars John Whaite and Maisie Smith, with the latter bagging £20,000 for the charity during a special edition of gameshow Blankety Blank.

But before that, Mimi Webb kicked off the telethon with a show-stopping performance of her smash hit Ghost Of You.

The singer donned a white co-ord with a cropped blazer and tailored trousers for the performance, getting the energy pumping for the evening.

And following the performance, Mel took to the stage to announce: ‘We have got an absolute banger of a show tonight, Pudsey has been febreezed and we have got a new kid on the block, it’s Jason Manford!’

Later in the show, Alex announced the Blankety Blank segment with Maisie and John, saying: ‘Now this might be Children In Need, but recently, it was two Strictly icons who needed our children’s help,’ she shared – before a video of Bradley Walsh hosting the Children In Need gameshow played.

The show featured a group of children who have been helped by the charity, alongside the soap star and Great British Bake Off winner.  

John was the first to be booted off the gameshow, leaving Maisie left to take on the ‘supermatch’ round, hoping to win a huge cash prize for Children In Need.

Working with the group of children, Maisie managed to bag £10,000 for the charity – before Bradley revealed that he was going to double the amount because it was a ‘special show’, scoring out the number to read £20,000. 

The annual telethon sees three hours of jam-packed programming, with celebrities and civilians alike coming together to raise money for a worthy cause.

The Children In Need fundraising appeal first began in 1980 and over 40 years later, the campaign is still going strong in a bid to help disadvantaged children and young people around the UK.

Following an introduction from the five hosts, a short video showed footballer Mason Mount, who is a Patron for Together for Short Lives, surprising a group of school children in support of Children In Need.

The show later moved onto a segment with Personal Trainer Joe Wicks, who had done a 30 mile walk around Salford Quays with a slew of different celebrities, alongside dressing up in drag and face paint to raise more money for the charity.

But as the segmant was due to begin, presenter Alex suffered a live TV blunder as she gestured for a video to play of him on the screen – with nothing coming up.

The awkward moment saw a minute of silence on stage, before Alex brought it back by telling the audience: ‘Well there was meant to be a video. But we’re just going to bring him out, Joe Wickes everybody.’

Joe then arrived on stage via two sliding doors, discussing his hard work to raise money as he shared: ‘It’s been amazing, i’ve walked just over 27 miles so i’m quite happy with it. I’ve dressed up as a drag queen, i’ve been acting,’ i’ve been spray painted.’ 

‘Would you like to know how much you have raised?’, Chris asked Joe, before revealing that he had raised a whopping £564,000.

‘Where’s that come from? Thank you so much to everyone who donated, thank you for your love and support. Keep donating if you can,’ Joe told the audience and camera. 

Awkward: Alex and Chris attempted to introduce Joe Wicks' segment on the show, but ran into technical issues when a video of the Personal Trainer failed to play during the live show

Following Joe’s impressive challenge, Freya Skye – who is the UK’s contestant for this year’s forthcoming Junior Eurovision – took to the stage with a live performace. 

The 13-year-old performer performed song Lose My Head for the first time on stage during the telethon, ahead of the December competition.

Donning a gorgeous red ensemble, Freya appeared on stage sitting on a golden throne as she belted out the number, surrounded by a crew of backup dancers.

Lorraine Kelly shocked her fellow celebrities as she erupted with an expletive-ridden rant for a hilarious Children In Need sketch on Friday.

The presenter, 62, put her kindhearted temperament to one side for the act, which saw her helping out at a call centre for the charity.

She had been taking donations over the phone as her usual self before breaking into a fit of anger, causing Peter Andre to spit out his water.

Deborah Meaden and Iain Stirling also looked shocked, while the Scottish TV personality directed her wrath towards the charity mascot Pudsey Bear.

Lorraine began by saying to the caller: ‘That’s so generous! Actually, could you just hold on a wee second, poppet? Just hold on for me for a minute.’

She then fumed: ‘[Beep] How many times have I told you [beep] to shut up? Honest to [beep] shut up [beep] shut up! I cannot concentrate on what I’m [beep] doing here!’

For the past 42 years, Children in Need has never failed to bring the country together to raise money for an excellent cause.

And this year is set to be filled with sketches, musical performances, and even promises a ‘big surprise’ as it returns to screens on November 18.
