Tonight sees the 2017 edition of Comic Relief, the bi-annual fundraising event that aims to make you donate through providing you laughter. A whole bunch of comedic presenters will be leading viewers throughout the nights. This list is: Lenny Henry, Jonathan Ross, Sally Phillips, Rob Beckett, Romesh Ranganathan, Warwick Davis, Johnny Vegas, Miranda Hart and Joe Lycett. Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Vic Reeves, Bob Mortimer, Matt Berry, Brendan O'Carroll, Peter Kay, David Walliams, Steve Coogan and Catherine Tate will also be involved. There are also performances from the inoffensive Ed Sheeran, Rag'n'Bone Man and Emeli Sande! Other highlights include a special edition of Carpool Karaoke with Take That and Kurupt FM feat Ed Sheeran.

One of the most notable and highly anticipated highlights tonight will be 'Red Nose Day Actually' which takes a look at how the characters of 'Love Actually' are doing 13 years on. This means Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln, Colin Firth, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Lucia Moniz, Liam Neeson, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Olivia Olson, Bill Nighy, Marcus Brigstocke, and Rowan Atkinson are all back for this special feature.

Will you be watching and what are you looking forward to?

I'm not bothering with it after how bad the charity telethons have been the last couple of years. It's such a dwindling format now but I guess they're still raising huge sums which is good!

Omg this past hour has been a mess, Brett Domino Trio having to redo their performance as one of their mics didn't work, no-one laughing at the awful comedienne who made the Oscar Pistorius joke and then the total was about to be announced and instead the channel died for 5 mins :')

I like the references to Home Alone, Taken and Love Actually in this telethon
Plus Carpool Karaoke was fun and it was good seeing Take That handing out free CDs to people.
But I didn't like the fact that there wasn't an official single to download from iTunes, unlike the previous years.

You can tell this year they were trying to do something really different, but I'm not sure it worked. The format was disjointed, chaotic, disorganised - but I have a feeling that was the intention.

Also I found that everything in the second part (from the Love Actually sequel onwards) was quite good, and everything on during peak time was atrociously bad, which seems odd scheduling to me.

Too much of Sue Perkins on Let's Sing and Dance for Comic Relief for my liking, sorry. She was the hare on 'Don't Scare The Hare'? Just felt it didn't work that show.
