Cheryl Cole, James Corden and Matthew Horne are among those who took part in BBC1’s star-studded Sport Relief telethon on Friday night.

More than £29m has so far been raised by this year’s appeal to help charities in the UK and in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Highlights of the show included funnyman Corden starring in sketches with sports stars including Andy Murray and David Beckham, the Match Of The Day team taking part in a special edition of Masterchef, and comedian Frank Skinner hosting a Question Of Sport special.

And Cheryl Cole performed her new single Parachute, as well as having the chance to congratulate Rufus Hound on his Let’s Dance For Sport Relief victory.

The funnyman won the series title last weekend after he dressed up as the Girls Aloud star to recreate the Fight For This Love routine.

“It’s like looking in a mirror,” Cheryl jokingly told him. “You have put so much work into it you have even split your trousers.”

Also taking part in the evening’s events were Dragon’s Den duo Duncan Bannatyne and Peter Jones competing in a special Strictly Come Dancing, while impressionists John Culshaw and Debra Stephenson appeared in a spoof version of The One Show.
