* Osama Bin Laden, Shergar, 'That girl off Holby City' and Lord Lucan are credited as having appeared in the music video with Peter Kay and Andy Pipkin singing The Proclaimers "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)". Elton John is also credited, but this is in fact Ted Robbins impersonating him.
* Chris Evans interviewed Bernie and Max, two boys who raised money by being tied together with ribbon.
*BBC telethons are known for overunning. Its 10pm news break finished on time, though the show overran by over 90 minutes.
* The original money raised by Radio 1 was £597,897. However according to Chris Moyles, himself, Scott Mills and Mark Chapman decided to donate £2103 between them to make the total £600,000.
* Andrew Lloyd Webber , David Tennant and Elle MacPherson all had cameo roles as part of a running joke by Chris Evans about celebrities wanting to appear on the show. After labouring the point that they had very little time to squeeze everything in, Webber simply walked on, looked at his watch and then walked off again. Tennant was then interviewed for a record 10 seconds, simply being asked how he was and then later MacPherson appeared as if by mistake only to be ushered off again by Evans.
