BBC Lines Up The Big Night In Entertainment Special


BBC Studios Entertainment is producing a live three-hour special—meant to celebrate the acts of kindness, humor and the spirit of hope and resilience that is keeping the U.K. going during the COVID-19 pandemic—for BBC One.

Dubbed The Big Night In, the special will see the BBC’s charitable partners BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief coming together for the very first time. The live show will feature celebs trying to support, entertain, cheer up and help out anyone who needs any or all of those things. It will include big surprises, “money can’t buy” prizes, live music performances (from the artists’ homes) and more.

Suzy Lamb, managing director of entertainment and music at BBC Studios, said: “It’s an absolute privilege to be producing what will be an incredible night of TV filled with entertainment and emotion. This will be a chance to show our appreciation to all the services and heroes while uniting two amazing charities, BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief for the first time ever. You really won’t want to leave the sofa!”
