Sir Terry Wogan, BBC Children in Need Life President, says: “It was my privilege to present the very first Children in Need in 1980 and over the years it has truly become the British Public’s charity.
“Their extraordinary generosity has meant that their donations of over £740 million have made a real difference to the lives of this country’s disadvantaged children and young people.
“It’s an honour and pleasure to be part of a great charity and I am looking forward to presenting an evening
full of entertainment with the usual suspects, Tess, Fearne, Nick and our new host Rochelle.”
