Top Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills is to abseil Blackpool Tower for Children In Need.

The mission was announced on his show this afternoon, with telethon presenter Sir Terry Wogan calling in to the show to challenge him live on air t.

Sir Terry said: “Your mission, should you to choose to accept it, is to abseil down the Blackpool Tower, all 400 feet of it and I am going to send The Royal Marines to assist you in your daring deed.

“Doing this for BBC Children in Need will make you the bravest chap in all of the country and a real Children In Need hero.”

Speaking ahead of his challenge, Scott said “I would say I’m really excited to be part of this Children in Need this year, but to be honest, I am ridiculously nervous about what I am taking on.

“I’ve never done anything like this in my life and am scared of heights - so it really will be a challenge.

“But there are thousands of children facing their own challenges every single day and BBC Children In Need makes a real difference to young lives - if facing my fear and abseiling the Blackpool Tower inspires even just one person to donate then it will be absolutely worth it - especially when I get to the ground.”

Children In Need will broadcast on BBC One from 7.30pm on Friday, November 13.
