*Strictly Come Dancing's *Ola Jordan, Big Brother presenter Rylan Clark, former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts and Sugababe Heidi Range all joined in on the fun to dress up as superheroes to help raise money for the children and young peoples charity this year.


    In particular, the celebs have donned the colourful lycra to launch the Be A Hero badge, which only costs £1, with all proceeds going to Children In Need.

    Speaking on their superhero roles, Rylan said: "If I could have any superpower I'd be a shape-shifter. Imagine! I could be Pudsey one day, then shift into something really boring so I could go to the shops without being noticed."

    Ashley added: "My superpower would be to teleport, so I could have time to see the fam and time to save the world. Pretty awesome, huh? You don't need to teleport to do your bit though, just fly on down to your Post Office to show your support."

    Well done gang!

    BBC Children In Need appeal night will be held on Friday November 13.
