Although not all at the same time. Obviously.

NOT ONLY THAT, but Example, Paloma Faith, Hurts and Laura Mvula will be doing their thang by performing on the show - AND a variety of co-hosts incuding Nick Grimshaw will help Graham to stop him losing his voice/the will to live.

Speaking about the show, Graham told BBC News: “David Walliams swam the Thames, John Bishop endured a week of hell and Eddie Izzard ran marathon after marathon after marathon.

"I am hoping to join this elite group of celebrity fundraisers by doing what I do best – sitting on my backside and talking.”
