Good morning and a happy Monday to you. This week Comic Relief and Twitch are pairing up to have famous faces play games, raising dosh for good causes, particularly youth homelessness.

Which famous faces? Real Madrid - sorry, Tottenham - footballer Dele Alli, blonde-haired Made in Chelsea star Jamie Laing, and Soccer AM presenter Adam Smith. Also: retired-now-not-retired Olympic gymnast Louis Smith, England and Arsenal Ladies footballer Alex Scott, and comedian Rob Beckett.

The celebs will play against Twitch streamers such as LT Zonda, Stodeh, MissEllaCronin and Spamfish. They'll be playing FIFA, Rocket League and either Mario Kart 8 or Super Smash Bros.

Louis Smith plays today; Dele Alli plays tomorrow; Dele Alli plays again with Alex Scott and Adam Smith on Wednesday; and Jamie Laing and Rob Beckett close the campaign on Thursday. Generally streaming happens 5-7pm UK time but is a bit later on Thursday.

The Comic Relief GameRaisers page on Twitch is the one to keep an eye on.
