Strictly heroes only for new charity campaign

Strictly Come Dancing star Kristina Rihanoff and Xtra Factor host Sarah-Jane Crawford have joined a host of TV personalities who have donned capes to pose as superheroes for charity.

Along with singer Peter Andre, choreographer Louie Spence and former rugby star Ben Cohen they are encouraging people to buy a special 'Be A Hero' badge to support this year's BBC Children In Need fundraising campaign.

Two designs have gone on sale in the UK with all proceeds going directly to the campaign, which is hoping for a bumper year.

Members of the public will be encouraged to dress as superheroes to show their support in addition to wearing the badge.

"It's great fun for a great cause," Ben Cohen said.

"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."

TV host Crawford added: "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."
