Shane Richie, Peter Andre for Children in Need specials

Shane Richie is set to reprise his role as host of the BBC Two Children in Need Appeal show at the Queen Vic on Friday 13 at 10pm.

He will be joined by a whole host of famous faces as they pop into The Queen Vic to join in the fun.

Shane says: “It is such an honour to be back behind the bar at The Queen Vic, once again hosting for Children in Need. We have some wonderful guests lined up this year with some great surprises – it is set to be a very special night.”

Not only will Shane host the BBC Two segment, he will also be performing on the night alongside Bonnie Langford and Richard Blackwood, as they lead a 30-strong EastEnders cast in a special Top Hat musical dance performance for BBC Children in Need. In full vintage Hollywood glamour, cast members including Gillian Tailforth, Lorna Fitzgerald, Shona McGarty and Tameka Empson will perform in the BBC Children in Need studios on Appeal night.

As well as some surprises on the night in the Queen Vic, the audience will be entertained by Strictly swinging sensation Peter Andre and his band performing Come Fly With Me.

Peter says: “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 13 November; it is going to be a really great night!”

Tune into the BBC Children in Need Appeal show on Friday 13 November on BBC One from 7.30pm and on BBC Two from 10pm.
