Comic Relief returns next month and the celebrities will be doing a number of interesting things in a bid to raise money for the charity. One celebrity who will be doing a Comic Relief challenge is This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby, who is being dared by singer Jessie J.
Willoughby explained, “I'm doing a dare actually. I don't know yet, I don't know what it is – it’s a surprise one! Jessie J is daring me to do something and I don't know what it is yet, [I find out] maybe this week I think.”
Meanwhile, Jonathan Ross praised Comic Relief for the important work that they do, saying, “I am down near the coast here in Ghana at a mother and child centre. We are basically seeing where some of the money that's been raised over the last 25 years of Red Nose Day is being spent.”
He added, “The children are being brought here for developmental checkups and also that are going to be given a vaccination against the rotavirus - which is a form of diarrhoea that the children can get and its a big cause of death for the under five's here so it’s very important. There'll be a million vaccinations being given out across Africa thanks to 'Comic Relief', so it's a million potential lives we're saving.”
