Children in Need 2015

Children in Need 2015 is a campaign held in the United Kingdom to raise money for the charity Children in Need. 2015 marks the 30th birthday of the charity's mascot, Pudsey Bear, since 1985, and the 35th anniversary of the appeal which culminated in a live broadcast on BBC One and BBC Two on the evening of Friday 13 November until the early hours of Saturday 14 November. The broadcast was hosted by Dermot O'Leary, standing in for Sir Terry Wogan, with Tess Daly, Fearne Cotton, Rochelle Humes and Nick Grimshaw as co-hosts. Shane Richie hosted the period the show was broadcasting on BBC Two.[1] The show was broadcast from the BBC in Elstree but also includes regular regional opt-outs. Wogan did, however, appear in a pre-filmed Sketch and provided a documentary voice over, but was unable to present the live section of the fundraiser due to ill health, for the first and later only time since its launch in 1980.[2] Wogan died in January 2016, making Children in Need 2014 his last appearance as host.
