Popular character Monkey has lent his wit and wisdom to this year's Comic Relief appeal, featuring in a new 'Red Nose Day In Your Pocket' app.

The app - which is available to download by clicking here - includes the latest news and celebrity videos, plus the most up to date information on what will be happening on Friday March 18th.

There is also a special 'Ask Monkey' feature - where users can pick the primate's brain on any questions that they need answering. The app has already had 20,000 downloads in the first ten days.

"It's wonderful that Monkey is doing his bit for Red Nose Day in this way and the app is proving to be a huge hit," said Rob Corney, MD of Bulldog. "He is a big, big star and has a phenomenal amount of knowledge for a woollen primate, so it's no wonder that people want to seek his advice."

The licensing programme for Monkey currently includes Posh Paws (plush), GB eye (posters), Bluebird Brands (fashion bags, laptop bags, and homewares) and Danilo (greeting cards and calendars).
