15 March 2019 MUSIC


Emma, 42, and Paddy, 45, gave BBC viewers a run down of the schedule for tonight’s Comic Relief 2019 telethon, with the blonde struggling to hide her delight about the cast of Magic Mike Live performing later on in the evening.
As Paddy revealed the upcoming schedule, Emma jumped in on several occasions to tease the upcoming routine by the half-naked male dancers.
Jokingly becoming increasingly frustrated, Paddy told his co-host: “You need to rein it in Willis, this is a a family show,” to which Emma agreed with a cheeky grin other face.
“Ladies out there, you don’t want to see a load of half-naked men gyrating on the stage, do ya?” Paddy asked the audience, as he faced a chorus of cheers.

“They do,” Paddy remarked as he laughed at the response, before going on to add what else viewers could expect form the evening of entertainment, all in aid of charity.
Whereas Paddy joked about his co-host’s excitement at the male stripper segment coming up on the show, viewers at home seemed a little more distracted by Emma’s blonde locks.
Taking to Twitter, one viewer posted: “Is it just me or does Emma Willis look uncannily like Jack Frost #ComicRelief.”
Another added: “Emma Willis as a blonde? I dig it #ComicRelief.”
Following the host’s introduction to this evening’s events, Comic Relief patron and comedian Lenny Henry, 60, to explain why it was so important the fundraising event is still going, 30 years after it first launched.
Footballer David Beckham, 43, and comedian James Corden, 40, also got in on the action as the show began by getting involved in a light-hearted sketch.
 

However, ahead of this evening’s grand telethon, a number of famous faces had taken on various challenges to do their bit to try and raise some cash.
Strictly Come Dancing hosts Claudia Winkleman, 47, and Tess Daly, 49, took part in a 24-hour danceathon, beginning during The One show on Monday edition of the programme.
The pair joined Emma and Tess during this evening’s show, in which they revealed they had recovered after dancing non-stop during the hours of their challenge.
Speaking about how they got each other through the 24-hour stint, Claudia said: “I loved being with this girl [Tess].
“We looked after each other because we had funny little moments because you’re so tired and normally, I’m asleep by nine.”

“So, we looked after each other,” Claudia told the presenters, before adding: “Jon Snow turned up, unless I imagined that, I don’t know,” with Tess affirming her Strictly co-host hadn’t dreamt the guest appearance.
It was revealed the danceathon had managed to add £1 million to Comic Relief end total, before the pair thanked their supporters for getting them through the mega challenge.
Lenny Henry also paid tribute to One Direction star Louis Tomlinson, who was originally planned to perform on the telethon this evening.
The singer withdrew from his participation in the show following the news of his 18-year-old sister Felicite Tomlinson’s death.
“The love and best wishes of all of us at Comic Relief go out to Louis and his family at this terrible time.”
Comic Relief 2019 airs tonight on BBC One.
