Holly Willoughby said: “I’m really excited to be taking part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day again this year and I’m delighted that I get to do it alongside Phil! So go and grab your best mates on December 8th and don your favourite festive jumpers together. There’s even more reason to get involved this year, as the UK government are matching donations to Save the Children, up to £2Million, so your £2 will go twice as far in helping children in the UK and around the world.”

Miquita Oliver said: “I absolutely loved wearing this second-hand disco jumper to celebrate Christmas Jumper Day – I find getting dressed up for Christmas so much fun! If you don’t already have a festive knit, take a look in your best friend’s wardrobe or go to your local charity shop – you’ll be amazed at what you can find – or what may find you!

“Wear your jumper with pride on December 8th and don’t forget to donate £2. Thanks to the UK government’s match funding, your donation will be doubled to help mums and babies in Kenya get the food and medicine they need to stay strong.”

Olly Murs: “Christmas Jumper Day is a great cause – and what better year to take part than this year, when the UK government is going to match every donation up to £2 million! Don’t forget to put the date in your diary and encourage as many of your friends and family as you can to join in the fun on Thursday 8th December.”

Last year Christmas Jumper Day was on December 10th and had stars including Dr Ranj Singh, Alex Scott, Holly Willoughby and more.
