Red Nose Day has returned bringing with it a host new comedy sketches, send-ups of our favourite television shows, performances from music stars and fundraising feats from the public and celebrities alike.
Here’s how to watch tonight’s proceedings and who you can expect to see.
How and when to watch Comic Relief 2023 tonight
The epic three-hour telethon will be coming live from Media City UK, Salford from 7pm on BBC One.
Viewers can enjoy an uninterrupted stream of comedy and live performances alongside updates and totals on fundraising events and footage of the causes which will benefit from the money raised.
The telethon breaks for the news on BBC One at 10pm but continues over on BBC Two with When Comic Relief Did Big Brother.
In 2001, six celebrities entered the Big Brother house in honour of Comic Relief.
Twenty-two years on, the housemates look back at this extraordinary moment in television history.
At 10.40 pm Comic Relief returns to BBC One for just over an hour of The Best of the Best Bits, highlights from 35 years of Comic Relief.
All the shows will also be available on the iPlayer.
Who is in tonight’s line-up?
Steering the show through its fundraising marathon this year will be Red Nose Day veteran hosts Zoe Ball, David Tennant and Paddy McGuinness along with Joel Dommett and AJ Odudu.
But the evening will see a huge cast of the great and the good of the entertainment world joining the show not to mention a cameo appearance from the Prince of Wales.
Pop vocalists Tom Grennan and Zara Larsson will provide the live musical entertainment with performances of their latest singles.
While television cook Dame Mary Berry, actor Danny Dyer, comedians Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders and Stephen Merchant take part in an unusual but star-studded version of the BBC hit show The Traitors.
Pop legend Kylie Minogue creates an unsettling atmosphere for the cast of BBC sitcom Ghosts when she turns up at Button House to see if it’s a suitable concert venue.
Comic Relief will also turn up the heat on Love Island sending an unexpected bombshell into the villa.
Sir Tony Robinson will reprise his famous role as Blackadder’s sidekick Baldrick, to read a bedtime story.
Presenter Dermot O’Leary will team up with Jamie Demetriou’s Stath Charalambos from Stath Lets Flats for a sketch.
Graham Norton, Lulu and Sam Ryder form a panel to judge auditions from a variety of famous faces in search of the UK’s next Eurovision entrant.
Those auditioning include: actor Jamie Dornan, Spandau Ballet star Tony Hadley and comedian Miranda Hart.
As part of Comic Relief, two tickets to the sold-out Eurovision Song Contest grand final will be given away in a prize draw.
One winner will also enjoy a meet-and-greet with Eurovision presenters Rylan and Scott Mills alongside their tickets, as well as travel expenses and a one-night stay at a top hotel in the host city of Liverpool.
The cast of Mrs Doubtfire the Musical will also deliver their first UK performance of “Make Me A Woman” from the new stage show.
And the Prince of Wales will appear in a video appeal in which he meets people receiving help from one of the charities supported by Comic Relief, homelessness organisation Groundswell.
Money raised from this year’s appeal will support people struggling with the cost-of-living crisis and tackle issues such as homelessness, mental health problems and food poverty.
