This year’s Children In Need is all about the celebrity bears.

Eight stars have been immortalised as our favourite teddy for the charity.

The VIP, or ‘Very Important Pudsey’, collection has been designed by iconic British names that include Coldplay, Joanna Lumley, Dame Helen Mirren, Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Paul McCartney, Dame Judi Dench, Brian May and Sir Terry Wogan. […]

The range of bears are set to be displayed over the next two weeks at St Pancras International station concourse in London before being auctioned off on eBay to help raise money for Children In Need.
