fund raise

Big Night In: Stars and royals help raise £27m on BBC charity show

More than £27m was donated during the three-hour event, with the government promising to double the total.

The show saw Children in Need and Comic Relief join forces for the first time.

Peter Kay, Catherine Tate and the Little Britain duo also took part - as did the Duke of Cambridge, who appeared in a surprise sketch with Stephen Fry.

Prince William was then joined by the Duchess of Cambridge and their children to lead the weekly Clap for Carers.
