Doncaster’s Louis Tomlinson and his One Direction bandmates are among a whole host of recording artists due to record the Band Aid 30 charity single today.

This will be the fourth time Do They Know It’s Christmas charity single will have been released, and this year’s version is set to receive its world class premier on the X Factor results show tomorrow night.

Other performers set to feature on the single include Ed Sheeran, Adele, Bono, Emeli Sande, Ellie Goulding, Sam Smith, Bastille, Foals and Chris Martin.

The single will be available to download at 8am on Monday, priced at 99p.

A CD version costing £4 will be released three weeks later.

Money raised from the single will help fund relief efforts to fight the spread of the Ebola virus in West Africa.
