Sport Relief 23rd-25th March 2012

It’s finally here, all preparations are complete, it’s taken a lot of planning but this weekend will see the biggest Sport Relief ever!

Over the past few months celebrities such as David Walliams and John Bishop have completed some of the most amazing Sport Relief challenges yet. Frank Skinner has even set his own personal challenge to overcome a lifetime fear of swimming.

Freddie Flintoff has amazed the world by setting an astonishing 14 records in the space of 12 hours, which included some very strange tasks including the most hotdogs made in 1 minute – 9 and the fastest 100metres on a Pedalo (1minute 58.62 seconds)

Members of the England Football team have been battling it out in the Kitchen, Strictly Come Dancing took to the water, and the stars of the fantastic sitcom Benidorm encounter Simon Cowell and the Britain’s Got Talent judges. Frank Lampard and his fiancé Christine Bleakly make a cameo appearance in the comedy ‘Outnumbered’ Even the biggest names in Rugby are getting stuck in, teaming up to sing with JLS.

And you can see it all in a superb night of sporting entertainment starting at 7.00pm on BBC1 Friday 23rd March.

It’s not just about the celebrities of course, over the weekend more than a million people will be taking part in a mile long run for Sport Relief all over the UK to raise money for people who need it the most, both here in the UK and in some of the world’s poorest countries so any donations really do make a difference!

So enjoy the show tonight and if you’re taking part in the Mile at any point this weekend then good luck!
