Here's all you need to know about who will be presenting and a look back at previous hosts.

Who will be presenting Children in Need 2018?

Children In Need 2018 will be presented by Rob Beckett, Ade Adepitan, Mel Giedroyc, Graham Norton, Tess Daly, Marvin Humes and Rochelle Humes. 

This is comedian Rob's first time hosting the show – he will replace Matt Edmondson who was a presenter in 2017.

Rob said:  “I am so excited to be presenting BBC Children in Need this year. It’s a British institution and a wonderful charity, so to be asked to help out is a huge honour.

"My parents are gonna be bursting with pride. I also get to meet Pudsey! I can’t wait!”

Who has hosted in previous years?

Both 2017 and 2016's Children in Need were mainly hosted by the same celebrity team we will see on our screens this year.

Prior to them, Children In Need also welcomed other famous faces like

Zoe Ball, Alesha Dixon, Joanna Lumley and Sue Cook.
