After weeks of build up, ITV's annual fundraising show Text Santa is here. Ant and Dec will open the show - and their alter-egos, little Ant and Dec, have been to 10 Downing Street to question the Prime Minister himself.
The annual fundraiser raises money for six charities, which help people of all ages across the UK. There are plenty of surprises and one off performances planned for the show.
David Wood has been backstage for us to see how preparations are going.
Watch Text Santa from 8pm on Friday, 20th December.
