This year's BBC Children in Need TV appeal has raised a staggering £18m for charity.
Take That, JLS and Cheryl Cole were among the stars that helped raise the amount for disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.
By the end of the show, the total amount donated stood at £18,098,199.
Organisers have said that they hope the event will raise more than the £39m generated last year, once all the donations are collected.
Friday night's show was hosted by Sir Terry Wogan, Tess Daly and Fearne Cotton and featured a joint appearance from the casts of both Eastenders and Coronation Street.
Cheryl Cole, Sir Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue, Susan Boyle and a newly-reformed Take That all performed on the show.
The BBC news team also performed, giving the viewers a rendition of Lady Gaga's Poker Face and the Loose Women ladies performed a Girls Aloud number.
Chief Executive of Children in Need, David Ramsden, said the BBC was "humbled and inspired" by the amount of money raised each year.
"In these tough times the millions raised tonight will make a real difference to thousands of young lives right across the UK. On behalf of the children I would like to thank everyone for their incredible generosity."
