David Tennant To Host Comic Relief For BBC One’s Red Nose Day Fundraiser

David Tennant is set to be a host on this year’s Comic Relief Show as part of the 2022 Red Nose Day celebrations. He will be joining Lenny Henry, Zoe Ball and Paddy McGuinness at the BBC Studios in Salford to present the show live on Friday 18th March from 7pm on BBC One.

As part of the fundraising efforts, comedians Tim Vine and Kiri Pritchard-McLean will head to the Welsh countryside to take on Countryfile’s One Red Nose and Their Dog competition. The pair will have to put their newfound sheepdog skills to the test in a bid to be crowned the champions in a one-off special which is set to air in March, with the winner revealed during the Red Nose Day show. 

 The One Show is also getting involved with the return of their Red Nose and Spoon Race, which will see two teams battle it out during a four-day race. 

 Five celebrities will be put through their paces in a special edition of BBC Three’s Glow Up, where they will be set a real-world make-up industry assignment and creative briefs in hope of being crowned Britain’s First Celeb Make-Up Star for Comic Relief. CBeebies’s Bedtime Stories will also feature a special Red Nose Day series of famous faces reading stories to the nation.
