Did anyone else watch it last night? I only watch Girls Aloud but I was horrified to see how thin and ill Nadine looked.

No not really, sadly cause l love to watch it usually. But get so fed up with commentators and the way they have to stand on the right spot and rehearse and rush everyone etc ruins it.
Just love the stories though, my heart goes out to so many children and their families !!

They raised an amazing amount though:)
Did'nt see Girls Aloud.

Have not bothered for many years.

I remember the first one when they had an orchestra on the Thames near to where I lived and they played the 1812 overture with real cannons!!!

And I think one of the presenters was Ulrika

I watched some of it. My favourite was the children's choir. I can't remember how many children but from so many different places, Belfast, somewhere in Southern Ireland, Cardiff, somewhere in Scotland I think and many different places in England. All school choirs. One choir and 3 soloists in the studio, organised by Aled Jones and all singing Bridge over Troubled Water. What a wonderful sound they made. Gareth Malone would be proud.

Also saw Girls aloud, Strictly, East Enders spoilt by Alan Sugar IMO.
