If you are having telethon withdraw symptoms, don’t panic as help is on its way. With blisters a thing of the past after running Sport Relief miles, Cancer receiving another deserved thrashing thanks to Channel 4 and Pudsey still being as blind as a bat out of one eye the year is being rounded off by Ant & Dec and Philip Schofield this Friday as they ask you to Text Santa.

Pip Schofield has just come off the back of introducing a 24-hour telethon for the cause, so this week’s mini appeal, which broadcasts over three hours, should be a doodle for him.

During the show we will be dropping in at Downtown Abbey with George Clooney, joining Mel B in Coronation Street and revisiting the Outback where Ant & Dec host a festive Yule Tucker Trial.

Game show addicts won’t miss out on their daily dose of entertainment thanks to Schofield hosting a special edition of The Cube and there will also be a special edition of Birds of a Feather.

The programme, which will also be hosted by Christine Bleakley, Alesha Dixon and Paddy McGuinness has even more early Christmas treats in store in the shape of the casts of Mr Selfridge and Emmerdale.

Money raised from the appeal will be divided between the Alzheimer’s Society, Guide Dogs, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Teenage Cancer Trust, Together for Short Lives and Wellchild.

You can make a donation now by paying a visit to the Text Santa website.

Text Santa is on ITV, Friday 19 December at 8pm.
