"BBC Children In Need was one of my first experiences of charity, it was really powerful as a kid to find out that by simply doing things that I loved I could raise money which could go on to change someone else’s childhood," he said.

Marvin added: " I have seen first-hand how that £10 raised through a bake sale, or £20 raised through a quiz, makes an impact, so whatever you decide to do, just have fun – I promise it will go on to do great things."

I personally recommend a donut bake sale – I did that once at school and it was a very happy day!

Also joining the campaign are Strictly Come Dancing host Tess Daly and new It Takes Two host Rylan Clark-Neal.

To date, the British public has raised more than £1 billion for Children In Need. The 2019 appeal show airs on the BBC on Friday November 15.

Last year the fundraising show also caused a stir when it teased viewers with a clip from the Call The Midwife Christmas Day special. We can't wait to see what they've got in store this year!
