From Martin Freeman’s Yoda to Call The Midwife’s Strictly Special, Children in Need 2015’s Best Bits

From Top Hats to Strictly sparkles and a Star Wars special, the celebs were out in force to raise money for charity

Raising £37 million pounds for charity is no mean feat but Children in Need 2015 did just that, with the aid of volunteers and fundraisers across the nation – and via it’s annual TV celebration last night.


From Martin Freeman’s flawless Yoda impression to Scott Mills’ descent down The Orbit, here are five of the most memorable moments…

EastEnders gets glitzy

The residents of Walford were puttin’ on their top hats and tapping to the beat in style as they gave Hollywood glam a go. Bonnie Langford got to show off her finest Dancing on Ice moves on stage, while Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) pulled off splits you’d only usually see on Strictly.

Call The Midwife does Strictly

Speaking of the glitterball, Sir Bruce Forsyth was back in action as the extended cast of Call The Midwife competed for the Children in Need version. Could Helen George have competition among her co-stars?

Harry Hill’s TV History

If anyone can fit 40 years of TV into 4 minutes it’s this guy. Can you name all the shows he referenced?

And did you spot former Doctor Peter Davison? Don’t have cow if you can’t, all creatures great and small struggle with these things sometimes.

 Scott Mills vs The Orbit

He didn’t think he’d be able to make it down the tallest sculpture in the UK, but Scott Mills went for gold at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park anyway.

And finally, Martin Freeman’s FLAWLESS Yoda
