To donate £5 to the Text Santa appeal, text the word SANTA5 to 70760*

Text Santa kicks off on ITV at 8pm on Friday, but you can catch Teenage Cancer Trust coverage from 9.25am with a Jeremy Kyle special featuring young people who've been treated on Teenage Cancer Trust units. You can also watch Neil's story which was featured on This Morning earlier this month.

The appeal launched at the beginning of December with Phillip Schofield making TV history by presenting a live 24 TV marathon. He made guest appearances on Lorraine,  interviewed the Prime Minister and even kept awake with some late-night yoga! Phillip raised money through his Justgiving page, which will be split between the 6 charities.

Just saw @Tommy_Hazell and @TeenageCancer talking to @Schofe for @ITVTextSanta. Really inspiring guy and amazing charity! Also go Schofe!

Teenage Cancer Trust staff were also busy raising money through a virtual Cycle to Lapland challenge at the ITV offices.
