Actor David Tennant, Strictly Come Dancing runner-up Joe Sugg, Radio 2 DJ Zoe Ball, The Greatest Dancer host Alesha Dixon and comedians Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan have all joined the presenting line-up for the BBC telethon.

“I’ve presented once before for Comic Relief,” Doctor Who and Broadchurch star Tennant said.

“That was the first time I’d ever done it – but then I hadn’t been asked to do it since! So I’m very grateful that they are willing to take that risk again. From what I remember of live TV, it’s quite chaotic and in the moment. My very limited experience of live TV would tell me just to roll with it on the night.”

“I’m very pleased that I’ll be presenting alongside Zoe Ball,” he added. “She’s got live broadcasting running through her blood, so I can rely on her to do all the difficult stuff!”

The BBC has also teased special appearances from Alan Partridge and Freddie Flintoff, as well as the already announced features like Richard Curtis’ miniature Four Weddings and a Funeral sequel and the Bodyguard spoof with Richard Madden.

Check out the full list of presenters below, followed by the TV schedule (the show will be hopping between BBC1 and BBC2 throughout the night).
