ITV’s annual charity appeal returns for a fifth year with a host of stars doing their bit in a Christmas Knit in support of Text Santa Christmas Jumper Day, a three-hour star- studded TV spectacular on ITV. The distinguished line-up of presenters – Phillip Schofield, Holly Willoughby, Amanda Holden, Paddy McGuinness, Alesha Dixon, Stephen Mulhern, Christine Bleakley, Olly Murs and Caroline Flack – take viewers through this unmissable night of fundraising with one message: put on a Christmas Jumper, join in the fun and donate to Text Santa!
This year’s highlights include a visit to Coronation Street with a Text Santa twist, Ninja Warrior getting the star treatment as celebrities take on The Wall, and Lord Grantham having a tough decision to make in our Downton Abbey special. Special guests from the world of entertainment will be on hand to deliver a sack full of surprises and seasonal cheer in this festive treat.
Throughout the evening, the amazing work of the three charities supported by this year’s Text Santa is highlighted with moving films fronted by well-known faces. This year’s charities are Macmillan Cancer Support, Make-A-Wish UK and Save the Children.
