Red Nose Day launches

Lenny Henry

Lenny Henry and Richard Curtis were on hand to launch Red Nose Day '05 on BBC Radio One this morning.

The station aired the first play of the official Comic Relief single, All About You by McFly. The band themselves visited Africa in January and their reports will be shown on Red Nose night.

Chris Moyles revealed his breakfast show team's own fundraising effort -- The Red Nose Rally. They will tour the country's football grounds collecting prizes and offering their services to the nation in exchange for cash.

Also coming up: Little Britain specials featuring Robbie Williams, Elton John and George Michael plus a new series of Celebrity Fame Academy.

The theme of this year's appeal is 'Big Hair and Beyond' -- changing the way you look to make a big difference to people's lives.

Stand by for the Red Nose Day '05 feature site coming soon.
