Tom & Jerry to grace our screens for Children In Need


One of the world’s most beloved animated duos, Tom & Jerry, will be making an appearance this Friday on Children In Need.

Everyone’s favourite cat and mouse partnership will be running around and into some of the BBC’s most iconic shows in order to get the stars to help them raise money for Children In Need.

The sketch comes as a result of a letter to the mischievous duo from none other than presenter Sir Terry Wogan, asking them for their help.  As a result, Tom & Jerry go and visit various stars including Mary Berry and Danny Dyer.  They start off by swinging by the Match of the Day studio to see Gary Linekar, before waltzing over to the Strictly Come Dancing set to give a swift performance in front of judges Len Goodman, Darcey Bussell, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli.

The two will then have a chance to relax with a pint or two in Walford’s finest pub, The Queen Vic, in order to pay Mick and Linda (Danny Dyer and Kellie Bright)  a quick visit before heading over to the home of The Great British Bake Off to see Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry.

Tom & Jerry will then have to pluck up the courage to sprint over to Canary Wharf and enter the world’s most daunting boardroom in order to see stars of The Apprentice Lord Alan Sugar, Nick Hewer and Karen Brady.

The cartoon, made exclusively  for the BBC and Children In Need, will air at 19:30 this Friday, the 14th November, on BBC One. Further stills can be seen from the BBC’s website here.
