The opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games has raised around £2.5million for children's charity Unicef.
The donations were made during the show following an appeal by Scottish actor James McAvoy and cycling champion Sir Chris Hoy.
McAvoy, from Glasgow, said: ''This has never been done before - this many people in a single moment all coming together to make a life-saving difference to millions of children.''
Sir Chris added: ''Let's make history together.''
Early figures showed that over 500,000 Brits had donated by text within an hour, Unicef said.
Pop princess Kylie stole the show as she closed what has been dubbed the 'best ever' Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
The Jamaican sprinter said the only negative at the Commonwealth Games was the weather, as he hailed the "brilliant" event in Glasgow.
Pop princess Kylie will be top of the bill tonight as the Commonwealth Games comes to a close.
