Good Luck Phillip!

The countdown to Text Santa 24 has well and truly begun! As Phillip gears up for one of the biggest broadcasting challenges of his career, we've got some messages of support for him from a few celebrity well wishers.

Here's Andi Peters' message for Phillip, all the way from the I'm a Celeb... jungle!

After a busy morning's work on Good Morning Britain, Charlotte, John and Ranvir sent this lovely message for Phillip ahead of Monday's marathon TV challenge!

Mel B set to star in Corrie

We can now reveal that X-Factor judge and former Spice Girl Mel B will be taking on the cobbles in a very special Coronation Street sketch for this years Text Santa appeal.

Although it won't be the star's first trip to Weatherfield (Mel appeared as a checkout girl in the soap pre-Spice Girls), she will be taking on a role that'll be totally different from what we're used to!

Last year saw fellow X-Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini hit the Rovers in search of a new bestie for a Christmas party, also in aid of Text Santa.

Catch Mel B and the rest of the cast of Corrie during this year's appeal on 19 December.
