Children In Need 2020: Alex Scott stuns in a little black dress as she kicks off the BBC One show

2020 marks the 40th year of the charity’s fundraising efforts. 

And, on Friday night Alex Scott, 36, stunned in a little black dress as joined Chris Ramsey, 34, Mel Giedroyc, 52, and Stephen Mangan, 52, to host the first ever virtual version of Children In Need on BBC One.

The former footballer, the comedian, the presenter and the Green Wing actor were glammed up to the nines for the night of fundraising.

Alex oozed elegance in her A-symmetric frock, which boasted a pretty ruffled hemline, and boosted her height with strappy stilettos.

The Strictly star styled her raven tresses into a slick-back ponytail, and used long, straight hair extensions to add an extra dose of glamour. 

Comedian Chris looked dapper in a black suit and crisp white shirt, tying everything together with a black tie. 

Mel added a pop of colour to her black trousers and sparkly black blouse with a pair of eye-catching hot pink heels.

Stephen open for more casual attire, opting to forgo wearing a tie in favour of an open-collared pink shirt beneath a navy suit.

The evening kicked off with a special performance from Kids Bop who took viewers through decades of hit songs. 

Next up, Diddy TV (presenters Dick and Dom) interviewed three members of Little Mix, who were transformed into miniature versions of themselves with the help of puppets.

Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall placed their heads above tiny puppets with the arms used without their control, and their voices distorted to sound incredibly high-pitched, resulting in utter hilarity.

Jesy Nelson didn’t appear alongside her bandmates, after she was recently forced to pull out of co-hosting the EMA’s due to illness.

Joining the pair on the track are Bryan Adams, Izzy Bizu, Clean Bandit, Mel C, Jamie Cullum, Ella Eyre, Paloma Faith, Rebecca Ferguson, Jess Glynne and Sheku Kanneh-Mason. 

Rounding out the line-up are Lenny Kravitz, KSI, Lauv, Ava Max, James Morrison, Gregory Porter, Nile Rodgers, Jack Savoretti, Jay Sean, Anoushka Shankar, Robbie Williams and Yola. 

BBC Children in Need exists to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.

Since its first major Appeal in 1980 BBC Children in Need has raised over £1 billion, and is currently supporting over 3000 local charities and projects in communities across the UK

These charities help children and young people facing a range of disadvantages such as living in poverty, being disabled or ill, or experiencing distress, neglect or trauma.
