Comic Relief’s Glow Up Does Red Nose Day: When is it on, where can I watch it and which celebrities are taking part?

BBC’s Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star is returning for its first one-hour celebrity episode which will see five celebs put their make-up skills to the test in an attempt to be crowned the winner of the Red Nose Day special. Their creativity skills will be judged in a series of challenges working against the clock.

Similar to the usual set-up of the Glow Up episodes, the stars will first be set an assignment working within the beauty industry. Their task will be to create make-up looks suitable for a Red Nose Day runway.

They will work on models selected by model and fashion designer Leomie Anderson, including Drag Race UK’s A’Whora, YouTuber Nella Rose and UK models Kenza, Eva Apio and Leomie herself. For their second challenge, they’ll head back to the Glow Up studio where their artistic skills are needed in a personal creative brief, which they will have to create on their own faces, before the top make-up artists are selected to go through to the final face-off.

Nikki Lilly added: “I loved my time on Glow Up Does Red Nose Day. I’m such a fan of the show and makeup has always been something I’ve used to express myself and is my escapism, so it was really fun taking on the challenge, especially with it being for charity.”

Glow Up is on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer from 9pm on Tuesday, March 15. You can watch all previous episodes of series one to three of Glow Up on the BBC iPlayer.
