Little Ant & Dec Grill the Prime Minister for ITV’s Text Santa
This Christmas, in a world exclusive for ITV’s Text Santa, Prime Minister David Cameron faces a TV inquisition like never before. He’s faced Jeremy Paxman, Tom Bradby and John Humphrys. But now the PM comes up against his toughest test yet – a grilling from Little Ant & Dec.
What were the questions and what where the PM’s answers. All is revealed on Text Santa at 8pm on Friday 20 December.
Text Santa is ITV's annual charity appeal, which raises money, and awareness for six UK based charities. This year's chosen charities are Age UK, Barnardo's, BeatBullying, British Heart Foundation, CLIC Sargent and Help the Hospices.
Ant & Dec have helped design this year’s special Text Santa Christmas Hats and Paul O’Grady has emerged from his hit ‘…For the Love of Dogs’ series to design a hat for dogs. These, and children’s Text Santa hats, as well as a range of Text Santa merchandise are available across the UK at Morrisons, one of the appeal partners.
Viewers can make donations throughout the appeal via text; thanks to Text Santa partner Vodafone by using their JustTextGiving service, which ensures 100% of your donation goes directly to Text Santa and lets you add Gift Aid easily. Vodafone will also be operating the landline technology on the night, and taking calls if viewers want to donate by phone. Text Santa’s banking partner, Santander will be getting behind the appeal by taking donations in their 1,200 branches as well as offering this year’s ‘must have’ Christmas accessory, the Text Santa character pin badges, Holly, Rudy and Tinsel. Donations can also be made online at www.itv.com/textsanta. To donate £5 text SANTA to 70070.
100% of donations raised will be distributed equally between the sixth charities.
The Text Santa Fundraising pack is available online at www.textsanta.co.uk. The packs include information on how to get involved, by showing your ‘Hattitude’ while raising money for Text Santa, and helping the charities help someone near you.
