http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/showbiz/article-23421406-details/Terry+Wogan+waives+his+%C2%A39,000+fee+for+Children+in+Need/article.do

Now I like Terry Wogan - his ramblings at the Euro song contest are legendary but Im glad hes been forced to waive his fee at Children in need. Its either a charity event or its not. Im sure hes not the only one who takes a fee and its probably not fair to focus on him BUT why anybody would ask/ request payment for their contributions is beyond me.

That and the fact that last years comic relief was hit with the whole phone in thing, makes me trust these 'events' a lot less.

Aye, so did Gabby Roslin when she did it.

Why hasn't there been a national scandal? Am I behind on my Daily Mail reading here? I honestly never knew this..

I think there was initially. Wogan and Roslin made some feeble excuse or other and as the years went by, people kinda forgot about it.
