Comic Relief raises £74m with the help of music stars

Comic Relief has raised an incredible £74 million following it's televised fundraiser last night, March 18, that was full of entertaining spoofs. 

The BBC1 event took over programming yesterday and encouraged people to donate money during the broadcast of a series of sketches that involved some of music's best loved stars.

UK R&B group JLS appeared on the show in a skit that featured ex-Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Susan Boyle performed a hair-raising duet with funny man Peter Kay and a whole host of comedic talent grouped together to impersonate Take That. 

Watch the 'Smithy Saves Red Nose Day 2011' segment, which also stars JLS, George Michael and Sir Paul McCartney, here:
