We stood up to Cancer!
On Friday Davina joined together with a whole host of celebrities to Stand Up To Cancer in one jam-packed night of television.
The campaign has raised an incredible £14,520,756 so far for research into cancer which will help accelerate new cancer treatments to UK patients and save more lives.
The show, a culmination of inspirational programming and epic fundraising activities, featured comedy sketches, celebrity interviews and moving real-life stories. There was an incredibly emotional moment as the Children’s Choir featuring special guest Nicole Scherzinger performed live; while ‘Andy Murray the Movie’ saw the tennis champ casting the lead role for his biopic alongside his director Richard Ayoade. Auditionees included US music royalty Pharrell Williams, sports stars Rory McIlroy and Cesc Fàbregas, and Britney Spears – who auditioned for the part of Andy’s girlfriend Kim Sears.
Other highlights included the ultimate bake off between Taylor Swift and Jamie Oliver, a Gogglebox celebrity special and even a live romantic proposal between Annie Upton and Dean Charlton, who surprised his girlfriend by taking the stage with Diversity.
