Big Brother host Davina McCall surprised pupils at Parmiter's School, when she burst into their lesson.

Davina chatted to students before announcing that, as recognition for the record amounts of money the school has raised for Comic Relief, 12 pupils and teachers Katherine Bliss and Christelle Grenham would be treated to a tour of the Harry Potter set at Leavesden Studios.

The group will also watch some filming and meet stars Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley).

Footage of the visit, held last Wednesday at the school in High Elms Lane, will be shown during the Comic Relief programme on BBC1 on Friday evening.

I kinda find it a little, very little, heartwarming that whilst comic relief is a BBC event that all the other media seem to support it to. Just goes to show that some people working in that industry have a heart

Yes, but the problem is that the Comic Relief TV shows are so unremittingly appalling, full of dreadful acts and totally unfunny sketches acted out by supposed professionals behaving like amateur theatricals in the church hall.

The view seems to be "Yes, we know it's crap but it's for a good cause, so you'd better enjoy it," as if that is an excuse for putting on dire entertainment.

Whenever I see an evening's TV devoted to Comic Relief I automatically reach for a DVD.

Blooming heck, why am I not allowed to swear properly on this forum? BLEEP BLEEP BLEEP, I BLEEPING agree with Roy again!! BLEEP BLEEP BLEEEEEEEEEEEEP

I agree that for me 90% of what goes on is not very good, although there is the odd gem in amongst the tat. But its better now than when it used to go on for 24hrs! And ITV had their own version didn't they, can't recall what it was called though

Either way its still a cause i'm happy to support and i'm wearing my jeans today and have the red nose on my car and will be participating in the work charity raffle later on.

But as for tonight, thank goodness for sky +, i'll probably be catchin up on tele I missed earlier in the week
