CHILDREN IN NEED-LE: Pudsey fever is sweeping the nation as people prepare to take on weird and wacky challenges to raise money for Children in Need ... and Stephan Dobromylski, 50, is going further than most.

The retired coach driver is making sure this year's appeal will stay with him forever - literally.

On Friday, Stephan will get a picture of the famous yellow bear tattooed on his right forearm.

"I really wanted to do something for Children in Need this year because my wife got her head shaved a few years ago for the charity," he said.

"I thought this was a wacky idea that maybe no-one had done before."

Far from being nervous about his first tattoo, Stephan, from Swavesey, is looking forward to his next one. "I'm thinking I may have to get one on the other arm just to balance it out," he said.

INFORMATION: Stephan will be at Sink and Rise tattoo parlour in St Ives from 11am on Friday (November 9) where you can sponsor him.
