This weekend represented yet another record breaking year for Children in Need, raising over £26m so far with the total still rising. Brandwatch has pitched the UK’s cities against each other to see who should be crowned the nation’s CiN city in social media terms.

BBC1 covered the events nationwide and you can see backstage performances from the likes of Coldplay, Snow Patrol, Ed Sheeran and James Morrison here .
