The Wanted are to record this year's Comic Relief single.

The chart-topping quintet - who scored a number one last year with All Time Low - will release their charity track Gold Forever next month.

The boy band follows acts such as Spice Girls, McFly, Westlife and The Saturdays to release the official song for the biennial fundraising event, Red Nose Day.

The song will be out as a digital download on March 13 and in shops the following day.

The group's Max George said: "This song is about a day in your life that you never forget. It's an upbeat, feel-good track and our favourite so far.

"We're really excited to get it out there, and delighted that it is supporting such a great cause."

Bandmate Jay McGuiness said: "We're in a position where we can contribute to Comic Relief. We grew up watching it as kids and to be involved is crazy but an absolute honour."

The band's self-titled debut album went top-five last year.

The Wanted will perform the track on the TV telethon on March 18.

Money raised will go to vulnerable and disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
