Late great Children in Need stalwart Sir Terry Wogan will be much missed tonight

Ahead of a moving tribute to the charity stalwart (seen here in his final CiN appearance) who died in January forming part of this evening's money-making mirth - when winner of inaugural Sir Terry Wogan Fundraiser of the Year Award will be announced - here's a timely flashback of highlights produced last year when back surgery prevented the 77-year-old presenting 30th anniversary show that pushed proceeds beyond £790 million.

Long-time co-presenter Tess Daly summed up colleagues' sentiments, saying: "I know we will all miss looking at his lovely face with that ever-present cheeky glint in his eye, him constantly cracking jokes, never taking proceedings too seriously."
