Barrowman To Present Glasgow CIN Gig

Torchwood’s own John Barrowman will be hosting the Scottish section of this year’s Children in Need celebrations.

This year, instead of filming the event at BBC Scotland HQ, the show will be broadcasting from at the Glasgow SECC in front of an audience of 4000 people.

The Glasgow born Barrowman will be co-hosting the event called Children in Need Rocks Scotland with Reporting Scotland anchor Jackie Bird, on Friday 19th November.

The event will feature such acts as the cast of hit musical We Will Rock You, dance favourites The Box and Pearl and the Puppets as well as comics Des Clarke, Fred MacAulay, Daniel Sloss, Mark Nelson, Craig Hill, Janey Godley and Nina Conti.

As well as hosting the event Barrowman will also be presenting live links to the rest of the UK and performing.

He said:

“Working on Children In Need is always a highlight of my year. The cause is such a worthy one, and unfortunately right now the number of children in need in the UK is growing.”

Due to the popularity of the event the BBC will be operating a random draw policy for tickets.

To register up to four people for the event visit the Children in Need Rocks Scotland event page.

So far there has been nothing confirmed about Doctor Who’s role in this years celebrations.

In previous shows the revival series has aired special commissioned mini episodes like the special that first introduced David Tennant as the Doctor, set in between The Parting of the Ways and The Christmas Invasion and the brilliant Fifth meets Tenth Doctor romp Time Crash. Recently due to time constraints, the show has just given fans a sneak preview of upcoming shows like the previews for The Next Doctor and The End of Time.
