The BBC’s biggest charitable partners, Comic Relief and BBC Children in Need, are coming together for the first time ever for The Big Night In to celebrate those going the extra mile to help their communities throughout these difficult times.   

The live show aims to provide some light relief and entertainment, with some famous faces joining from home for some live music performances, big surprises and ‘money can’t buy’ prizes in an effort to support and cheer up whoever they can.

Comic Relief and Question Time were March's most-tweeted shows

The BBC's Comic Relief coverage gained the top spot with 245,848 tweets and over 84 million impressions, with Question Time coming in second with 131,000 tweets and 31 million impressions.

Comic Relief this year raised a staggering £73,026,234, which will be used to transform lives across the UK and in some of the world’s poorest communities.

The highest tweeting entertainment show was The Voice UK, which performed better than Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway
