BBC 'Children In Need' raised £32.6 million last night (14.11.14).
The annual charity telethon was presented by Sir Terry Wogan, Tess Daly, Fearne Cotton, Nick Grimshaw and Rochelle Humes, and collected a staggering sum during the six-and-a-half-hour fundraising marathon.
Acts on the night included One Direction, Susan Boyle and Boyzone, while retired 'Strictly Come Dancing' host Sir Bruce Forsyth returned for a special edition of the show to seek out a young ballroom champion.
The total - which will continue to rise as all the final donations are counted - will go towards helping disadvantaged children across the UK.
The highlight of the star-studded show was S Club 7's reunion performance, marking the first time the band's full line-up has performed together in over 12 years.
The group - made up of Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O'Meara, Hannah Spearritt and Rachel Stevens - performed a medley of their hits, including 'Reach' and 'Bring It All Back' for the live crowd at the Elstree Centre and 12 million viewers across the country.
