The line-up will include a 30-strong cast from the BBC One soap, who will do a Top Hat musical performance, featuring Bonnie Langford and Richard Blackwood.

Peter, who will be performing Frank Sinatra’s classic hit Come Fly With Me, said: “BBC Children in Need is a charity very close to my heart.


“I have seen first-hand how money raised makes a difference so am calling on people across the UK get fundraising to help make this appeal the best yet. And please don’t forget to tune in on Friday November 13. It is going to be a really great night.”

The BBC Children In Need appeal show screens on Friday November 13 on BBC One from 7.30pm, and on BBC Two from 10pm.
