Danny Dyer and EastEnders cast have a whopper performance in store for Children in Need

Children in Need is taking over the BBC tonight and the annual fundraiser is set to provide a memorable night of entertainment.

EastEnders fans might be disappointed that the soap isn't on tonight, but you'll be happy to hear that you can still catch the cast on the box this evening. The residents of Albert Square are set to perform a dance medley of 1980s movie classics, and as a teaser, they've released the below video of Danny Dyer as none other than Tom Cruise from Top Gun.

Be still our beating jam tart...


Also on the show tonight, there will be a performance from the hit West End musical Aladdin, a special children's edition of Would I Lie to You?, a sneak peak at the Dr Who Christmas special, a special Fantastic Beasts sketch starring Eddie Redmayne alongside Mel & Sue, as well as music from Little Mix, Busted, Take That, Zara Larsson and Ellie Goulding.

Children in Need kicks off tonight on BBC1 at 7.30pm.
