Sport Relief 2014 (Friday, March 21, BBC1, 7pm)

What’s It All About? In a word: charity. The likes of Gary Lineker, Davina McCall, David Walliams, Claudia Winkleman, Jack Whitehall and Fearne Cotton present a night of celebrity performances, comedy sketches and charity challenges for this year’s Sport Relief.

And Friday night telly with the feel-good factor doesn’t get much better than this. It boasts the return of Only Fools and Horses after a 10-year absence from our screens. Del Boy (David Jason) and Rodney (Nicholas Lyndhurst) are reuniting for a one-off sketch - joined by none other than David Beckham.

The rest of the night’s broadcast comes live from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, where Sport Relief hero John Bishop and four-time Olympic medal-winner Sebastian Coe will each captain two teams who go head-to-head in a series of challenges in the Clash of the Titans.

Alex Jones, Davina McCall, Robbie Savage and Alan Shearer all appear in highlights of this year’s celebrity challenges, while paralympians David Clarke, Hannah Cockroft, Nathan Stephens and Martine Wright will be swapping their sports kit for sequins as they take part in a Strictly Come Dancing.
