Yesterday, we broke the Guinness World Record for the largest number of pantomime horses in a race over 100 metres.
Our victorious participators comprised of volunteers from ITV and our partners and charities, who all paired up for the big occasion.
...Cheryl Cole arriving on Coronation Street for a one-off episode for ITV's Text Santa Appeal.

Television’s most famous street will welcome one of Britain’s biggest pop stars for the live Text Santa show on Friday, December 20th.
Coronation Street’s cobbles have provided the platform for many a VIP visit in the show’s 53 years.
This time, they will be the stage for Cheryl Cole, in a sketch specially written to raise money for Text Santa’s six chosen charities.
Scriptwriters have penned a storyline that sees Cheryl Cole arrive in Weatherfield and head for the Rovers Return, looking for her childhood friend, barmaid Tina.
In September, we joined forces with CITV to launch a competition offering one lucky child the chance to design a snail for the animated children's programme Compost Corner in a festive special.
We're proud to say, our winning designer is the hugely creative eight-year-old Emma Page from Essex.
Emma's snail, named Composetta, will be turned into a model that CITV's animators will bring to life to star in our festive special with other members of the Compost Corner gang.
Last month, Daybreak launched a competition offering one child the chance to design a Christmas card to be featured in a pack of cards fronted by chart topping girl band Little Mix.
We had over 1,000 entries, but our winning designer was the hugely talented 16-year-old Hayley Anderson.
The cards will go on sale in Hallmark stores across the country from today.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the cards will help the six Text Santa charities we're supporting this year.
For more information on the competition, visit the Daybreak website.
And you can see some of the amazing entries we had, by clicking here.
Thousands of children will spend Christmas in hospices across the UK as a result of their own life limiting condition or because they will be visiting their own poorly loved ones.
To help put a smile on their faces, Daybreak’s Toy Box encourages you to donate a brand new toy via the specially marked collection trollies at Toys R Us stores. These toys will go to the Help the Hospices charity, which looks after more 200 Hospices nationwide.
And to add further festive cheer, Toys R Us have agreed that for every toy donated to Daybreak’s Toy Box, they will donate money to our Text Santa Appeal.
This year, we're encouraging everyone to put their hats on display for Hattitude Day!
On the 20th of December, we’ll be asking the nation to show their visible support for Text Santa by wearing a hat to work, college or school in return for a small donation to Text Santa.
Your hat can be old or new, festive or silly, or even your favourite football beanie. As long as you wear it with Hattitude, that’s all that matters.
And today, Mark Heyes joined Lorraine with four fabulous hats he's designed for Text Santa.
Mark will also be showing us how to up-cycle and bling up our old hats.
