I wonder if this is from the last one George did (2 yrs ago?). They already had the one this year and he wasn't on it.

George Clooney and Cheryl Cole among stars coming together for Channel 4's Stand Up For Cancer

19-10-2012

Dozens of stars will appear on screen and man the phones to raise money for charity

Friends star Jennifer Aniston is among the big name celebrities joining forces tonight for Channel 4 fundraiser Stand Up For Cancer.

Dozens of stars will appear on screen and man the phones to raise money for charity including Cheryl Cole, George Clooney, Bradley Cooper, Samuel L Jackson, Leona Lewis, Gwyneth Paltrow, Will Smith, Derren Brown and Tom Daley.

Jennifer Aniston, 43, said: “Cancer touches all our lives, which is why we need to Stand Up To Cancer, right here on Channel 4.”

Alan Carr will front a super-sized chat show with the best green room ever, packed with A-list stars both from the UK and the US.

Carr, 36, said: “Pretty much everyone will be affected by this disease in their lifetime, and that’s the very simple reason why I’m honoured to be involved with this campaign.

"Like so many people, I’ve seen exactly how destructive the big C is. I’ve lost two people already this year to cancer, and friend of mine who has been diagnosed with throat cancer is having her voice box removed next week, and won’t speak again. So we need to raise a lot of money.”

Davina McCall will host a high stakes version of Two Million Pound Drop, aiming to raise big money for Stand Up To Cancer – building on the show’s successful history of charity editions, which recently saw the recent Celebrity Games specials raise a spectacular £700,000 for 14 different Paralympic and disability charities.

Davina, 45, said: “Cancer is a scary word, one that strikes fear into our hearts. Amazing discoveries and medical breakthroughs are happening all the time, if we ‘Stand Up To Cancer’ we can all help kick cancer’s butt.”

Throughout the night, Channel 4’s doctor in residence Dr Christian Jessen will be on hand to explain some of the science behind the incredible new cancer trials we hope to fund, and to introduce stories of those who have been affected by cancer and whose lives depend on new breakthroughs in cancer research.

Stand Up For Cancer starts on Channel4 at 7.30pm and runs all night.

Hmm, the way that's written it sounds as though George will be manning the phones, but I guess he'll just be appearing on screen.

Well in the run up for this, I've not heard of Georgie being on it either here (UK) or from video link. Gwenneth did her thing a while ago and it made the news here, so maybe they're just using his name?? We'll have to watch and see!

maybe he did tape something. He can't be there for an all night telethon and be in LA for his award tomorrow. I know that he's superman (oops Batman!!!), but he can't be in two places at the same time.

Yup, that's the one from a couple years ago. So, has anybody heard if he was actually there for the UK one?

According to the Daily Mail (that bastion of correctness!) he was. I believe by video, not actually in person:

My son is in a doctorate program here in the States and they are working on a cure "from the inside' of the cells themselves. To promote a healthy cell from a diseased one, they are experimenting with using different "proteins" to carry medicine to destroy the disease without harming the cells themselves. Most other treatments kill every cell, healthy and diseased alike. It's exciting to watch the progress being made today in cancer research.

The station posted the video online---I haven't watched it as there are a few parts and it is long but in case anyone wants to watch:

There have been many advances for a cure to cancer. Remember my sister's sister in law? Well the hospital she was going to didn't really offer her a great quality of life solution. Through a friend she heard of a procedure in another hospital that might help her. She is still living with the disease but this new procedure has helped her quality of life. Always get a second opinion.

Thanks Lela. Yeah, they used the George part from the US one a couple years ago. He wasn't there and he didn't record something new.
