20th December 2012

Donate to the Text Santa appeal on the ITV website now.

Catch up with the whole show on the ITV Player here.

Phillip and Holly are co-hosting a live segment of Text Santa on ITV1 on Friday 21st December from 9 – 10pm to help raise money for worthy charities this Christmas. They’ll be joined by Ant & Dec, Paddy McGuiness and Christine Bleakley who will host separate segments of the show.

They will also appear on the live-streamed backstage show for an interview and a fun game after 10pm, and will be available to answer Twitter questions from fans.

The Text Santa appeal will follow a day of special Santa programming on ITV1, including This Morning, and the live show itself will be as overflowing as a Christmas stocking on the 25th December – stuffed full of surprises galore, live studio entertainment and super-star guests, plus special mini-episodes of some of the channel’s leading shows, including a festive Coronation Street and Celebrity Juice!

The Text Santa appeal selects six charities a year that are helping change the lives of vulnerable people across the UK – this year they are Age UK, Anthony Nolan, Carers UK, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Together for Short Lives and Whizz-Kidz.

Please raise money for these worthy charities now by visiting and make sure to tune in on Friday 21st December from 8 – 11pm on ITV1 or catch up on the ITV Player here.

Merry Christmas!
