Wanted join Gary's charity line-up

The Wanted have joined the Children In Need Rocks line-up

Gary Barlow has added boy band The Wanted and veteran US singer Barry Manilow to the bill of his BBC Children In Need Rocks concerts.

The Take That star is organising a pair of concerts next month to raise funds for the annual charity appeal, headlined by the likes of Robbie Williams and Rizzle Kicks.

Also newly added to the line up of the shows, on November 12 and 13 at the Eventim Apollo in London, formerly the Hammersmith Apollo, are The Lumineers and Brit Award-winning songwriter Tom Odell.

Barry said: "I have known Gary from early Take That days when they re-recorded my hit Could It Be Magic in 1992. We have remained friends and I am thrilled he asked me to be a part of this great BBC Children in Need Rocks night."

Gary said: "We are in for a fantastic couple of nights with lots of amazing artists and some very exciting collaborations."
