Comic Relief 2011 has launched with photos and behind-the-scenes video showing what’s in store for Red Nose Day on Friday, March 18.

A host of celebrities have pledged their support in various ways to raise money and awareness for this year’s Red Nose Day.

Among Amanda Holden, Alexandra Burke, Lenny Henry, Ruth Jones and Graham Norton, the lads from The Inbetweeners attempted to visit 50 rude places in 50 hours while Tess Daly, Kimberley Walsh and Michelle Heaton are fronting the Raise Your Maltesers campaign which aims to raise £1million for Comic Relief 2011.
