A special evening of virtual entertainment
The first ever virtual Childline’s Merry Little Christmas held on 10 December was a festive spectacular! Hosted by Ore Oduba, the evening saw a stellar line up of magical entertainment, including exclusive performances from the incredible Leona Lewis, Jamie Cullum and Calum Scott.
We were joined by the West End Kids, the immensely talented BBC Young Chorister of the Year Anna Haestrup, magician Ben Hanlin, the Gill Family, and Britain's Got Talent favourites the D-Day Juniors and D-Day Darlings. Her Royal Highness the Countess of Wessex, Alison Steadman OBE and Natalie Dormer also gave festive readings, and the event featured special appearances from Louise Pentland, Elaine Paige OBE, Robert Lindsay, Geri Horner and Martin Freeman.
