The news is already late and I suspect they'll want to keep Strictly on time, but also not great PR to drop a 70-minute best bits compilation of Children in Need. The EPG
now suggests a 50 minute version will air at 6.05pm if the tennis wraps up soon (final tie break beginning now).

Looking at the programme info the CiN highlights is still listed as a 70 minute programme. Given the short turnaround time I'd be surprised if they'd made a shorter edit. In theory they could show in on Sunday in the Planet Earth repeat slot and pinch 10 minutes from somewhere. However the Rugby on before that is the finals, which I imagine could potentially last longer than scheduled.
