Olly Murs will perform alongside a community big band and acclaimed jazz singer Clare Teal in Leeds to raise money for Children in Need.

Eighteen musicians from West Yorkshire have been chosen to form the big band to play alongside Clare Teal at the Leeds town hall.

Speaking to the BBC, Murs said: “I’m delighted, I can’t wait. It’s going to be an amazing gig and to be involved in Children in Need is always a pleasure.”

Murs said he was a fan of the big band music style.

“I love it. Ever since I was a young kid my nan and granddad grew me up listening to the Rat Pack and the likes of Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jnr, and to be involved in this is going to be amazing.”

The performance is on Tuesday 30 October and live on Children in Need night on Friday 16 November
