Still no confirmation it's not coming back either. Personally felt Sport Relief was better when held in June and the weather more suitable for outdoor events to take place. I don't really see though why either the BBC or Comic Relief would want to axe it considering it raises around £50m or so - especially poor if the BBC can't spare one night per year. I'd have thought if the BBC had pulled the plug Comic Relief would be knocking on ITV's door.
And on the charity theme SU2C is going annual now with it's telethons, whilst Soccer Aid also takes place this year. I think usually it's only in World Cup/Euro years.
ITV did do a Telethon event in 1988, 1990 and 1992. There was then a long break until Text Santa launched in 2011. Even that was ended in 2015, so I do not see Comic Relief ever leaving the BBC and heading to ITV.
Remember Comic Relief is not an independent charity event airing on the BBC. It is part owned and created by the BBC with Richard Curtis and Lenny Henry.
