About this programme

The festive charity appeal returns for a second year, as the evening's presenters Ant and Dec, Holly Willoughby, Phillip Schofield, Paddy McGuinness and Christine Bleakley are joined by a host of celebrities to raise money for six deserving causes. The show includes A Christmas Corrie, featuring stars of Coronation Street past and present, a comedy duet between Gary Barlow and Dawn French, a Family Fortunes special with Jonathan Ross and Jo Brand, and the Loose Women panellists in an X Factor audition. Plus, Rupert Penry-Jones and the cast of Whitechapel team up with other ITV detectives in a murder-mystery spoof. Also in the studio are the stars of Emmerdale, Rebecca Ferguson, Helen Mirren, David Harewood and Alan Titchmarsh, among other surprise guests.
