Rob, who also presents panel show Would I Lie to You?, said: “I am delighted to be hosting what is set to be a fantastic evening of music and comedy, two of my favourite things. It’s not unusual for Sir Tom to go above and beyond when it comes to putting on a show, so I have no doubt this will be one to remember, and all for a fantastic cause.”

The concert, on Thursday, October 8, will be shown on BBC One in the week of Children in Need in November.

Sir Tom said: “It really is a great honour to be working with BBC Children in Need this year, I hope this night of entertainment will not only be a fantastic experience for those who come along, but will also go on to help disadvantaged children and young people right here in the UK who really do need our help. I look forward to seeing you there; it is set to be an amazing night.”
