Speaking to Miriam O'Callaghan on RTÉ Radio 1 on Sunday, the co-founder of Comic Relief, Love Actually writer-director Richard Curtis, said he had received the running order for Friday's show and promised that viewers are in for a treat.
"I was just thinking, 'What's it like?'" he teased. "And I think it's like a fridge in a hotel where you open it up and you see all these perfect little miniatures. And you think, 'Oh I'll have all of them!'"
