Sport Relief all set for star-studded show

Sport Relief does Strictly Come Dancing

Sport Relief is set to bring you the best night of TV of the year with a glittering show on Friday 14 March.

Richard Hammond, Gary Lineker and Davina McCall, will present the show which sees many of the BBC's biggest brands come together for Sport Relief.

There are special Sport Relief themed editions of Strictly, The Apprentice, Top Gear and Question of Sport Relief.

Jonathan Ross will interview Michael Parkinson in an eagerly-anticipated showdown of the TV chat show kings.

Jonathan Ross will also be in action in all-star tennis when he teams up with Greg Rusedski to take on Jimmy Carr and Pat Cash.

Sport Relief Celebrity boxing sees soul singer Lemar take on GMTV heart throb Ben Shephard over three punishing rounds in front of a glittering crowd at Television Centre.

Ben has been getting training tips from Ricky Hatton, while Lemar has been mentored by Amir Khan so there is bound to be fireworks.

The six hour live TV extravaganza will also see the conclusion of Alan Shearer and Adrian Chiles' 335-mile bike ride as the duo cycle into the studio.

Chris Moyles will complete his Radio One challenge live in the studio and Leona Lewis performs the Sport Relief single.

We also find out how James Cracknell, with a little help from David Walliams, completed one of the most difficult sporting challenges ever - a triathlon from England to Africa.

Other highlights include Alan Carr taking on the Arsenal ladies football team in a special Sport Relief challenge.

And, as ever, it's up to you the viewers to rise to the challenge to make the difference.

The money raised will go towards helping vulnerable people both at home in the UK and across the world's poorest countries.

Alan Shearer, Tess Daly and Kelly Holmes also visit Comic Relief projects to see first hand how the money is improving people's lives.

So make sure you are watching Sport Relief on Friday March 14 from 1900 GMT
