With the help of the generous public and a host of celebrities willing to take part in charity fund raising events and aid work, Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day raised an impressive £75 million.

The fundraiser’s 25 year anniversary saw Comedian, Lenny Henry kicking off the live show, which was filled with entertaining sketches and celebrity reports from the UK and Africa in order to get people to donate as much as possible.

David Beckham and Doctor Who’s David Tennant were among the celebrities making appeals to the public.  

Appearances were made by Peter Kay, Simon Cowell, One Direction and even celebrities such as Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow and Hugh Grant were involved in the fundraiser.

Other hosts for the night included popular TV presenters Dermot O’Leary, Claudia Winkleman and Jonathan Ross. The night involved hilarious reinterpretations of hit TV shows ‘The Vicar of Dibley’ and ‘Call the Midwife’, as well as singer Jessie J shaving her head as promised.

Comedian, Russell Brand announced soon after 01.30 that they grand total had reached £75,107,851 - passing 2011's total of £74.3m.
