A host of celebrities including George Clooney, Mcbusted and Warwick Davis teamed up to help raise $8.8 million (£5.5 million) for festive charity telethon Text Santa. The show raised its highest ever annual amount and brings the total over four years to $32.8 million (£20.5 million). Clooney’s much-anticipated cameo appearance in a Downton Abbey skit was aired, while Davis guest starred in U.K. soap opera Coronation Street alongside former Spice Girls singer Melanie Brown. Members of super group McBusted undertook gruesome jungle tasks from reality TV show I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! and host Phillip Schofield climbed to the highest point in Europe, the top of London’s The Shard building. The show was also hosted by TV personalities Anthony McPartlin, Declan Donnelly, Paddy McGuinness, Alesha Dixon and Christine Bleakley.
