The comedian has devised and filmed a special sketch for the charity telethon. The musical video is a spoof of A-Ha's classic 1985 music video, Take On Me.

The sketch sees Harry Hill joined by singer Sinitta and cooking presenters The Hairy Bikers, aka Dave Myers and Simon King.

The video will also feature newsreader Sophie Raworth, Miranda star Tom Ellis, EastEnders actress Cheryl Fergison, presenter Richard Madeley, Apprentice star Nick Hewer, Life's Too Short star Warwick Davis, sitcom actor Will Mellor and property show presenter Amanda Lamb.

Speaking about his involvement with Children In Need, Harry Hill says: "Pudsey called me and told me his favourite 80s pop video was A-Ha's Take On Me. Suddenly an idea popped into my head - let's recreate it!

"Who better to get involved than 80s superstar Sinitta, and The Hairy Bikers?! We've changed the plot only slightly to bring it bang up to date - it now involves a fight over a giant sausage. If that's not entertainment I don't know what is - and it raises money for BBC Children in Need - sorted!"

Below are some behind-the-scenes photos of the sketch being filmed:
