One Direction are heading to Walford with the boyband presenting part of the BBC's Children In Need night from the Queen Vic.

The boyband, who starred in the documentary film One Direction: This Is Us earlier this year, will host a 35-minute segment of the charity telethon from the EastEnders set on BBC2 next Friday and perform the ir hit track Best Song Ever.

They said: " We all grew up watching Children In Need as kids so to be in a position where we can collaborate with the charity and help raise funds for this amazing cause is truly special for us."

They are not the only group that will be involved on the night - veteran chart toppers Wet Wet Wet will perform their record-breaking hit Love Is All Around on TV for the first time in a decade - after avoiding it for years because it was driving them to distraction.

The group notched up 15 weeks at number one with the song - featured in hit movie Four Weddings And A Funeral - but asked for it to be deleted because their were tired of its overexposure.

But they have agreed to dust it down for an appearance on the appeal show.
