Glasgow comedian Janey Godley will join First Minister Nicola Sturgeon in this year’s STV Children’s Appeal telefundraiser. 

The First Minister will “address the nation” to call for support for the STV Children’s Appeal, which raises money for vulnerable children and young people across Scotland.

However, her words will be dubbed over by Godley’s tongue-in-cheek, “Glasgow patter” impression of the First Minister that has become familiar to Scots throughout 2020.

The sketch will be signed off by the now-iconic catchphrase, “Frank, get the door!” – which “the First Minister” famously shouts at the end of every briefing.

An online fundraiser for the STV Children’s Appeal – set up by Janey Godley fan, James Martin, in June – calls on the First Minister to mutter the “Frank, get the door!” catchphrase for real, “in the spirit of fundraising”, if his £10,000 target is reached. Martin’s JustGiving page total currently sits at £10,579.

The tenth STV Children’s Appeal TV event will be hosted by Lorraine Kelly, and will also feature an exclusive performance from rock royalty Biffy Clyro, a Celebrity Catchphrase special with Kelvin Fletcher, Steph McGovern and Tom Allen, and inspirational stories from “community heroes” up and down the country.

The STV Children’s Appeal 2020 airs tonight on STV at 8.30pm, and across the UK on the STV Player.
