Viewers will also see Ezra cover Rudimental’s 2018 hit These Days while Olly Murs will perform Justin Timberlake’s Can’t Stop The Feeling and Rock Your Body.

Ezra said: “I hope people tune in and donate to Children In Need Rocks 2018, it’s all for a great cause.”

Glynne added: “I’ve always been a huge fan of Otis Redding and Hard To Handle is one of my favourite songs. I don’t normally sing covers but I feel like this will be a fun one to sing.”

Children In Need Rocks, filmed at The SSE Arena, Wembley, will feature stories from some of the young people being helped by the charity.

Children In Need Rocks will be broadcast on November 15 on BBC One at 8.30pm.
