Children in Need has announced itself this year with a parody of the famous 'Holding Out for a Hero' song from 80's queen of pop, Bonnie Tyler.

It's that time of the year again. Children in Need has announced itself this year with a parody of that famous Bonnie Tyler song (no not that one, the other one) sung by Bonnie Tyler herself.

Bonnie Tyler has re-released her 1984 hit "Holding Out for a Hero" for the charity. Great. But that's it. It's basically 45 seconds of saying "Guys! We got Bonnie Tyler!" And just in case that wasn't enough, they made a second one. 

I guess they're quite fun, if not funny, and they show a bunch of ways that you can get involved. So they're not terrible ads. But where's Wogan break dancing? Where's Pudsey? Don't the children deserve better?
