Children In Need presenters Tess Daly and Greg James kicked off the live appeal show with a promise that they would "give everything" to return the favour to long-running host Sir Terry Wogan.

Sir Terry hosted the annual BBC charity event for 35 years until 2015 when poor health forced him to pull out.

Last night was the first live telethon show for the charity since his death in January this year following a battle with cancer.

Daly said: "This is our first year without our dear friend and charismatic leader, Sir Terry. Sir Terry was everything that embodied Children In Need and someone we will all miss very much."

James, who is co-hosting the show for the first time this year, said: "It is up to us to continue his legacy." Graham Norton, Ade Adepitan, Rochelle and Marvin Humes were also among the presenters.
