Children In Need is back and something tells us it’s going to be an amazing year!
Abbey Clancy, Daisy Lowe, Michelle Keegan and Stanley Tucci are just a few of the celebrities getting behind Pudsey by donning this year’s t-shirt design.
Each year BBC Children in Need launches a new t-shirt for their campaign and this year it is designed by coveted designer and supporter of Children in Need, Giles Deacon.
For 2015, Pudsey Bear has been given a glamorous makeover. The charity mascot is depicted in metallic gold and polka dots while an alternative option sees him sport a monochrome design, black guise.
Clearly delighted about the new addition to her wardrobe, 29-year-old Abbey gushed, “I love Giles and think the new fashion makeover he has given Pudsey is just amazing. You can always rely on Giles to bring something wacky and wonderful to anything he does and he always has an original take.”
Modelling the t-shirt, Daisy Lowe says, “Giles Deacon never disappoints! He has really outdone himself this year, with not one but two gorgeous t-shirts exclusively for BBC Children in Need. Dress it up or dress it down, this sleek take on Pudsey Bear will make it easy to look fantastic while fundraising.”
Stanley Tucci said of the 2015 t-shirt, “To be part of BBC Children in Need’s 2015 campaign and support such an amazing cause is an honour, and truly great fun! Please do all you can to support this year’s appeal, perhaps start by getting one of these t-shirts!”
Michelle Keegan commented, “This Giles Deacon t-shirt for BBC Children in Need is a fantastic way for people up and down the UK to support this year’s Appeal. The t-shirt not only shows Pudsey in a new metallic guise, but also brings in influences from Giles’ 2015 collection, so Pudsey really is a trendy Bear this year!”
Speaking of his new design Giles Deacon said, “I have been a huge supporter of BBC Children in Need for many years now, and was delighted to offer my support again this year through the design of their 2015 t-shirt.”
The 45-year-old, who has dressed the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Heidi Klum and Cate Blanchett, added, “I hope that everyone likes Pudsey’s new look, and that the public buy the tee, it really will go on to help make a difference.”
I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to get my metallic Pudsey on!
