Pudsey and stars dance for CIN
The BBC has said this year's Children in Need is aiming to match 2011's record total of £26m as stars such as Kylie Minogue, Girls Aloud and One Direction gave their support on stage.
Around 20 of Britain's Olympic and Paralympic stars also got in on the action, in a special music video.
And two of Strictly Come Dancing's most amusing celebrity competitors, Ann Widdecombe and Russell Grant, dusted off their dancing shoes for the fundraising effort.
