The video for the cover of Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water was given its first airing on ITV ahead of last night's Coronation Street and is set to rocket to the top of the charts following the song's release yesterday morning.

The clip shows behind the scenes footage of stars such as Louis, Robbie Williams, Emeli Sande recording the single, as well as scenes of the community coming together in the aftermath of the blaze which has claimed at least 79 lives.

Plans for the single were announced by Simon Cowell just a day after the fire and was recorded three days later, with scores of celebrities spotted arriving at a west London studio.
