Blue are set to launch their own pay per view channel, with band member Simon Webbe heading into the spotlight first.
A camera crew will follow the 35-year-old singer for the fly on the wall-style documentary for 24 hours, as he goes to the gym, shops and eats. There will also be a live acoustic performance of some of Simon's solo material, before he joins Blue to perform old favourites and previously unseen material from their new album Roulette.
"You all need to sign up to my TV channel on Netdow.com if you want to spend a day with me, that's where it will be. You'll get performances from myself and the boys. There'll also be interviews and various other things - it's pretty cool," he said in a video.
The pay per view channel, which will raise funds for the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust, will launch on April 13.
"Help me raise money for ACLT, a charity that is close to my heart," added Simon.
Simon, the first UK celebrity to set up his own pay per view channel, will be followed by his band, who will be offering their entire live performance of their sold-out gig at 02 Shepherds Bush on May 3 via Blue.tv, where fans can watch the full show live from the comfort of their own home.
Blue's new single Hurt Lovers will be released on April 22, with their first studio album in 10 years, Roulette, out on April 29.
