Henshall also urged the public to continue to support the DEC’s current appeal for the people of Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe, where hundreds of thousands of people are still recovering from the devastating cyclones that hit the region earlier this year.

Cyclone Idai swept through Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe in the middle of March, killing more than 900 people and leaving three million in urgent need of humanitarian assistance.

Henshall added: “Whilst more than £3 million pounds has been raised for the DEC Cyclone Idai Appeal through the generosity of people across Scotland - more than £41 million across the UK - the vast scale of the devastation means much support is still needed to help people recover and rebuild their lives. Please donate if you can.”

Henshall's recording will be shown on Thursday at a debate the DEC is hosting in partnership with the Book Festival.

Among those joining the debate are David Nott, acclaimed frontline trauma surgeon and author of War Doctor, and Lynsey Addario, the Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist.

Both will recount their experiences on the front line of some of the world’s most extreme humanitarian crises over the past 20 years.
