Peter Andre has teamed up with former rugby star Ben Cohen and The Xtra Factor host Sarah-Jane Crawford for Children In Need's new campaign. 

The Be A Hero appeal asks the British public to wear their best superhero costume for the charity while also donating to the annual event by purchasing a Be A Hero badge, available from the post office.

Peter said: "I think everyone dreams of being a superhero as a kid, so to get the chance to do it properly with the cape and the wind machine was something special.He added: "Fun aside, it’s all for a great cause. Having seen first-hand the great work that BBC Children in Need do, we’re all hoping that everyone will be a hero and show their support.

"Sarah-Jane continued: "Wearing the badge is a simple way to be a real hero and show your support to help disadvantaged young people right here in the UK. I’ve picked the silver glitter one – we all love a bit of sparkle. "Joining Peter, Ben, and Sarah-Jane are Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Kristina Rihanoff and choreographer and TV personality Louie Spence.

Ben, who was partnered with Kristina for the eleventh series of Strictly Come Dancing said: "It’s great fun for a great cause. Whether you’re at school, in the office, or even on the playing field, dig out the spandex, buy a badge and let everyone know that you’re being a hero for BBC Children in Need. "Kristina added: "It’s not the heels and sequins that I’m used to, but I could certainly find use for my cape on the dance floor. Maybe we could just add some rhinestones for a little sparkle!" All proceeds for the badges, which are £1, will go to BBC Children in Need, which raises money for projects which help disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
