Joined by the Bray Gospel Choir, the pair sang carols on Dublin's South King Street to highlight the Lean On Me Campaign, www.leanonme.net, which calls on friends and family to support those close to them affected by depression.

Singer Johnny Logan revealed that Christmas time in Dublin had been the inspiration for his new single 'Another Christmas Song' which he performs on the 'Late Late Show' tonight, and which this week is released all around Europe.

"The lyrics go: "Walking up on Grafton Street, to the rhythm of my soul, stepped into Bruxelles Bar to get in out of the cold, music playing everywhere, laughter laced with beer, did I hear a voice from way back say 'what's another year' ", Johnny Logan told the Irish Independent.

The 56-year- old singer will be home in Ireland with his family this Christmas before travelling to Bucharest for a concert on New Year's Eve.

With Crystal Swing and Jedward tipped to seek Ireland's Eurovision entry this year, the three time Eurovision winner said it would be up to "the deep thinkers in RTE to decide" which act should represent Ireland.
