Amazingly, Children In Need was  first broadcast in 1980 with the much-missed Sir Terry Wogan at the helm.

Last Friday we saw the 2018 version of the charity fundraiser event that had earned more than £972m since that first broadcast. Donations on the night of over £50m were the largest ever raised and helped ensure that the show easily topped the £1billion mark raised since that inaugural show.

One high-light was the stars of Eastenders taking on some of the most beloved classics from the Disney songbook Also, fans of Strictly Come Dancing, Doctor Who, and Call the Midwife all enjoyed special slots. All stars gave their services for free in order to help raise the money for such a worthy cause.

Banana Crumble salute them all and hope that people continue giving to the cause here
