Celebrities and PG Tips lend exper-tea-se to Monkey as he prepares to have some fun for Red Nose Day

Lucy Mecklenburgh and Monkey - As PG tips tea prepares to take pride of place as an official partner of Red Nose Day; helping to raise £1million* in the process, Monkey is set to embark upon a very special mission to mark the occasion. Not one to miss out on the fun, in just a few short weeks Monkey will be undertaking a Monumental Mission of his very own by bravely scaling the biggest, most monumental building of them all; The Shard. Standing a modest 1.1 feet tall, scaling Britain's tallest building - a lofty 310 metres high (we make that around the height of 2,800 mugs of tea**) - is no mean feat for Monkey. So, to help him along his way, PG tips tea has joined forces with some very special celebri-teas to help Monkey overcome his pre-mission nerves and prepare for his ascent. Lucy Mecklenburgh, Robbie Savage and Thom Evans will be on speed dial to help coach, mentor and motivate Monkey in the run up to his big day. Introducing Team Monkey... Getting mission style down to a tea: Always looking flawless, even while doing a double tuck double pike (or another impossible gym move we can't even pronounce, let alone do!), Lucy Mecklenburgh is no stranger to the pressures of looking flawless while taking part in sporting feats. Tasked with ensuring Monkey looks his absolute best, the Essex beauty will be imparting style advice to Monkey over a cuppa and hand-picking a suitably glam outfit for his big day. Putting Monkey through his paces: Whether its diving head first into a rugby scrum or pirouetting his way across a dance floor, Thom Evans is seriously fit... and to help Monkey prepare for his mission, he's been whipping him into shape so he's in peak physical condition to effortlessly scale the heights of the Shard and earn a very well deserved mug of PG Tips tea once he crosses the finish line. Maintaining a positive mental attitude: Having played the beautiful game for a number of years, Robbie Savage knows you need a bundle of confidence and a boost of optimism ahead of any - London, United Kingdom - Monday 19th January 2015 (2 Pictures)
