Football expert and Strictly star Alex Scott is among the celebrities dusting off their Christmas sweaters to raise millions of pounds for charity.
The TV presenter posed in a Rudolph top with tinsel around her neck to mark the annual Christmas Day of the Save the Children children on Friday.
The event is raising money for the world’s most vulnerable children in the UK and around the world – with more than £ 25 million since its launch in 2012.
Alex Scott said, « I’m going to miss all the glitzy fun from Strictly this year and instead add some extra sparkle to my Christmas sweater. Taking part in all the festive fun on Friday 11th. , is a good substitute. «
Other stars involved in the campaign included Holly Willoughby, who posed in a sweater with a giant Christmas pudding on the front, while Jaime Winstone had an eye-catching Christmas tree on her top.
They are joined by Ed Balls, Adam Pearson, Aston Merrygold, Dom Joly, Katie Piper, Liam Charles from Bake Off, Nicola Adams from Strictly Come Dancing, Peter Andre, Vicky Pattison and Georgia Toffolo.
And while Boris Johnson is not officially attending, Madame Tussauds gave their Prime Minister wax figure a Christmas jumper earlier this week to highlight the campaign.
Traditionally, offices across the country will be staffed with staff wearing their most eccentric festive sweaters.
But today, video calls are likely to be dominated by jumpers adorned with bells, twinkling lights, and twinkling lights.
Children will also ditch their school uniforms in favor of their stupidest winter wool, and dogs will rock last year’s tinsel as part of Christmas Day Jumper Day.
But Save the Children aims to create the most sustainable Christmas Day yet by encouraging people to wear an old sweater, make their own, or go to a charity shop instead of buying a brand new rope.
The charity has also partnered with some of the UK’s most iconic brands to raise awareness about the fundraiser.
Jacob’s has given its best-selling Christmas caddies a celebratory makeover, while Peppa Pig is hosting a celebratory competition asking fans to design Peppa’s Christmas sweaters.
The Entertainer sells an exclusive limited edition toy set from the Peppa Pig family – each wearing their own Christmas jumper, while Ladybird created the Peppa Christmas Jumper Day, which will be available at all good booksellers.
And Westfield has also opened the UK’s first Christmas rental shop. Curated by celebrity presenter and Christmas lover Laura Whitmore, the store has everything you need for the festive season.
Elodie Soetaert, Director of Christmas Jumper Day at Save the Children, said: « We are very grateful to our celebrity supporters and their talented children for getting into the spirit and taking some beautiful photos of their famous parents who Have fun with Christmas sweaters.
« While there will be many people at home this year, we encourage everyone to raise funds as it works best for them.
« As a result of Covid-19, more children are living in poverty, starving and unable to study. Therefore donations for Save the Children are more important than ever.
« When you donate £ 2 to participate, one sweater will really make the world a better place. «
