Ashes To Ashes: Children In Need

WASN’T it great to see the Ashes To Ashes cast back on screen last night?
Complete with Alex’s new hairstyle and those much trailed highlights for Chris.
Though, sadly, no sign of Shazza.
I’ll be going on set soon for interviews ahead of the second series.
Though, as usual, the material will be embargoed until nearer transmission next year.
So in the meantime, let’s reflect on last night’s Top Gear Meets Ashes To Ashes in aid of Children In Need.
If you haven’t donated any cash yet, now’s a good a time as any.
Click here to go to the official Children In Need site.
The running sum raised at the end of the show at 2am today was £20.99m.

Which means the annual appeal is on course to beat the £37m raised in total last year.
The BBC has posted the short Fire Up The Quattro film on their corner of YouTube.
It documents what happened when Richard Hammond went back in time to meet Gene Hunt.
Scroll to the bottom of this blog to see it.
And here are a selection of screen grabs from the film.
Remember – they look much better after you’ve donated.
Let me know via the comment box below if you’ve got any burning questions you want me to ask the cast or production team.
I’ll pick the best two or three and try and get the answers.
Although, due to embargoes, you will almost certainly have to wait until 2009 before I can publish the responses.
