The cast of hit comedy Fresh Meat are taking up a university challenge with a difference to raise money for Red Nose Day.

The stars of the Channel 4 show, about a group of students, will be travelling to seven universities between Newcastle and Loughborough on Friday.

The actors, including Jack Whitehall, Joe Thomas and Kimberley Nixon, will be doing everything from serving breakfast to lecturing to raise the money.

They will also visit universities in Durham, Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield and Nottingham on the day.

Highlights from the challenge will be shown on BBC One on Red Nose Day, Friday March 15.

Dozens of celebrities have got involved in this year's fundraising attempts, with One Direction recording a cover version of the Blondie track One Way Or Another and the Undertones single Teenage Kicks.

Other names taking part include Miranda Hart, Graham Norton and Kirstie Allsopp.

Making resources more readily available to the public is a worthwhile mission. You especially enjoy seeing children benefit from your hard work. Thanks to you, they'll have better opportunities for advancement.More
