Ellie Goulding is to release this year's fundraising single for BBC Children In Need.

The chart-topping singer has recorded a cover of The Waterboys' track How Long Will I Love You for the annual charity campaign, which she will perform on the BBC One show on November 15.

The singer - recently at number one with the single Burn - said: "I've grown up watching BBC Children In Need so it's fantastic that I'm doing this year's single.

"It is an emotional song, but in a really positive way, and I've been completely blown away with the positive reaction it's had already."

Ellie follows acts such as Girls Aloud and JLS by recording the official single, which will support disadvantaged young people in the UK.

The track will be released on November 10. It was originally released on The Waterboys' 1990 album Room To Roam.

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
