Red Nose Day’s charity TV special airs from 7pm on BBC One, aiming to raise as much money as possible for good causes across the UK and around the world.

Scots alone donated more than £1.3m for the last Red Nose Day in 2017, money which went towards funding 128 projects and organisations north of the border.

As well as tuning in tomorrow night, people are being encouraged to help fundraise in whatever way they can, through baking, performing, running, cycling, dancing or anything they can think of.

Sainsbury’s are selling this year’s Red Noses, of which there are eleven designs to choose from. T-shirts and other merchandise created in partnership with Disney are also on sale in TK Maxx.

The money raised from the Red Nose Day campaign and merchandise sales goes towards continued funding and investment in organisations across the UK and abroad.

Speaking ahead of reprising his Four Weddings and A Funeral role, John Hannah said: “The re-union was so special. As seems the way, we don’t cross paths often, but in this business whenever we do it’s a very special feeling.

“We share and open ourselves to so much so there is a special closeness”.

Susan Calman described being on set for Mamma Mia Here We Go Yet Again as “one of the most exciting days of my life”.

She said: “I’d seen the original Comic Relief sketch ten years or so ago and loved it. The chance to be in the sequel was too good an opportunity to be missed.

“We spent the whole day laughing and dancing. What could be better than that?

“Comic Relief raises a lot of money for charities in Scotland and so I wanted to do anything I could to help.”

The comedian reveals she didn’t get any tips from Dame Julie Walters on how to play the role of Rosie.

“I think that shows in my performance,” she says. “My Birmingham accent is horrific as Jennifer Saunders told me to go ‘full Mrs Overall’ so I did.

“I suspect that Dame Julie will be overcome with emotion when she sees what I’ve done. And not in a good way.”

Impressionist and comedian Rory Bremner said: “Comic Relief is a great national institution – as British as queuing, fish and chips and chicken tikka masala.

“Using comedy to raise millions has been a huge success story, helping change lives both here and abroad.  The need is greater than ever this year.  Let’s meet the challenge and do this!”
