Beginning on Saturday, 30 May from 6pm (UK time) and lasting until 6pm (UK time) on Sunday, 31 May, Pretty Woman actress Aimie Atkinson will be holding a 24hr Musical-a-thon to raise funds for Save the Children. According to Atkinson, there will be no gaps and no breaks in between (except of course when she needs to take her dogs Magic and Wolfie out to pee).

The event will be fully streamed live on Instagram, Facebook and Youtube all for free. Every hour, Atkinson and Gribby will be selecting someone to join them to sing and dance.
