Jamie Laing will undergo a series of challenges to raise cash for the charity
A star of TV’s Made in Chelsea will head to a Finsbury Park school to raise money for Comic Relief.
Jamie Laing, who plays himself in the reality TV show, is appearing at Islington Arts and Media School (IAMS), in Turle Road, tomorrow to help inspire a fund-raising drive in other schools across the country on Red Nose Day.
He will take part in a number of challenges, along with students, but he’s in the dark about what they are.
The event is part of the build up to Comic Relief’s biannual proboscis-themed charity drive, which takes place on March 13.

“Everyone at the school is very excited. The students really understand the importance of a day like this, which is great.
