One of the highlights of last week's Children in Need was the performance of the official single by Peter Kay's Animated All Star Band.

Chapman Entertainment worked with partners including The Voice and Music Company, Hullabaloo Studios, Studio Liddell and Mackinnon & Saunders to produce the single at its Altrincham, Cheshire-based facility.

It features over 100 animated characters including Chapman's own Big Chris from Roary the Racing Car - voiced by Peter Kay - Fifi and the Flowertots, Bob the Builder, In The Night Garden, The Wombles, The Thunderbirds, Teletubbies, Postman Pat, Bagpuss, Ben 10, Bill & Ben, Andy Pandy, Peppa Pig, Fireman Sam, Pingu, Paddington Bear, Scooby-Doo, Angelina Ballerina, Sooty and Sweep, Rainbow, The Woodentops, Muffin the Mule and Pudsey Bear.

Kay combined a medley of songs including Can You Feel It, Don't Stop, Jai Ho, Tubthumping, Never Forget, Hey Jude and One Day Like This.

Other stars collaborating in the single included Ringo Starr, Neil Morrissey, Jane Horrocks and Bernard Cribbens.

David Ramsden, CEO of BBC Children in Need, said: "We have no doubt it will capture the public's imagination and raise lots of money to help change children's lives."
