Comic Relief's Red Nose Day is here and tonight sees the annual telethon on BBC One.

But what time is it all on and what can we expect? Here's ALL you need to know!


Tonight's Comic Relief schedule

The fun starts on BBC One at 7pm as a host of comic favourites, old and new, including Sir Lenny Henry, Joe Lycett, Rob Beckett, Romesh Ranganathan, Warwick Davis, Sally Phillips, Jonathan Ross and French & Saunders preside over a mammoth night of live comedy, sketches, music moments, fundraising films and much much more on what promises to be TV’s most unpredictable night of raucous horseplay ever.

Expect the unexpected as a night of fun, foolery and fundraising is broadcast LIVE from Red Nose Day’s new comedy superclub home.

Sir Lenny Henry will launch proceedings with a very special opening sequence before the biggest comedy party on the planet gets underway with special guests, films and skits featuring everything from Ed Ball's reprising his Strictly classic Gangnam Style routine and James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke to a special Smack The Pony reunion plus the much anticipated follow up to Love Actually - Red Nose Day Actually.

Audiences can expect special treats from the likes of Alan Partridge, whilst Johnny Vegas and Joe Lycett will be donning their aprons and running a popular pizza restaurant on site at The O2 throughout the live night.

Greg Davies will even be hosting a special segment over on BBC Two from a very unique location – all will be revealed, quite literally, from 10pm in Greg Davies’ Hot Tub Half Hour.


After towelling off from that, the fun continues back on BBC One as Graham Norton welcomes a gaggle of guests to his ludicrously long supersized sofa in Graham Norton’s Big Chat Live.

Night owls have plenty of late night treats to look forward to including brand new stand up from host Russell Brand who will be compering a fabulous hour of fantastic comedy with Russell Brand’s Stand Off.

The laughs will keep coming well into the wee hours of Saturday morning as Noel Fielding and Jonathan Ross look back at some special Red Nose Day Musical Memories in Fantastic Beats & Where To Find Them.

As well as all of these comedy gems there will be music from three of the hottest musicians on the planet right now - Ed Sheeran, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man and Emeli Sande!

Plus throughout the night there will be a look at how Red Nose Day makes a huge difference to those living unimaginably tough lives in the UK and across the world’s poorest communities, and how money raised this Red Nose Day will help to change the lives of many more.
