The Saturdays are to team up with Manchester United for a summer charity fundraiser.

The pop princesses, whose hits include Issues, Up and Work, will kick off a pre-match concert at Old Trafford on May 1 to raise money for Sport Relief and the Manchester United Foundation.

Titled The Big Red Day Out, the music will warm up the crowd before a star studded football match between a Manchester United XI and "The Rivals", featuring a mixture of Manchester United legends and celebrity fans including James Corden, George Lamb, Paddy McGuinness, Tim Lovejoy, Matt Dawson and Jason Manford.

George said: "It's going to be a great day, United Relief Live is about having fun with family and friends as well as raising money for people who have unimaginably tough lives. Peter Crouch is kindly lending me a pair of boots, so it's game on."

Tickets are priced from £15 for adults, £5 for children and are on sale now at or or by calling 0161 868 8000.
