Ant and Dec to host star-filled Christmas extravaganza

Ant and Dec are joining up with Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley to front some special Christmas charity shows.

The ITV shows, called Text Santa, promise appearances from "some of the most loved names from television, music and showbusiness":

They will highlight the work of charities around the country and encourage viewers to donate to them by text.

The first show on December 11 is followed by another on Christmas Eve.

Crisis, the Samaritans, and Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital will be among the chosen causes.

Christine said she was "totally thrilled" to be involved.

"I'm sure the British public will help us raise Christmas sacks full of money for some incredibly worthwhile causes after witnessing some of the often unsung work they do all year round," she added.
