In the end cynicism is easy and futile. This was a proud and wonderful night. The achievement of millions. In every sense. Sort of makes up for the embarrassing side of being British doesn't it? We do come together well for this kind of thing. - Stephen Fry on Red Nose Day's wonderful total of £57,809,938 on the night, with a further £20m expected.

That such a total has been reached in times of Recession is truly wonderful. The comic highlights of the night, for me (I didn't watch right from the beginning), were David Tennant snogging Davina McCall, Robbie Williams in a Little Britain sketch, and Mamma Mia.

And we have the finals of 'Let's Dance' to look forward to tonight.

Thanks to everyone who commented on the wedding gear entries. Your suggestions are much appreciated and have reassured me about it being 'all right on the night.

Oh - before I forget - Happy Birthday tx_cronopio, you always manage to make me smile even on the greyest of grey days. May yours be bright and bubbly.

I was expecting the Red Nose take to be high. In times like these people are thinking about money and what it can and cannot do, they are more aware of what it means to not have it, and always there is that little sense of 'let's nudge the karma in the right direction' and 'it could be me'.

I'm glad I was right :o)

The last time I watched Comic Relief, I'm sure the total raised wasn't much more than £20m on the night.

Your reasoning makes perfect sense.

Wow. I don't partae in Red Nose day but that's very impressive!

It is impressive. People never cease to amaze me with their generosity. I wonder who the 'anonymous' not-famous donor of £6m is?

But it's true - you do.

That was an amazing total - I went to bed at about 11.00 and it was on 30 something million at that point.

I loved Mamma Mia and Outnumbered but did miss a few sketches I wanted to watch so I'll have to track them down on youtube or iplayer.

I hope you managed to watch the final of 'Le's Dance'. The result was just as I expected.
