He also took part in Peter Andre's Sweet Shop Surprise, where tasters play Russian Roulette with a nasty tasting jellybean.The promotions were used as part of the charity’s fund-raising tool kit for members of the community.

Kieren, 28, who runs School for Stage, which has bases in Longridge, Garstang, Lancaster and Lytham, says: “I was offered the opportunity through my agent, Boss Management, and I was thrilled to take part. Children in Need is such a fabulous charity, with the money going towards some great causes.“I work with young people so I know the money is going somewhere I am passionate about.“I loved taking part in the Doughnut Dangle and the Jellybean Challenge. It was a great thing to be involved in, especially when all the staff involved have a real fondness for the charity. I filmed the challenges at the BBC studios in Manchester and there was a group of around eight of us.”Kieren added his staff and youngsters at his School for Stage sites wore Children in Need clothing and raised around £100 for the charity.
