The medley is titled The AcaArmy Lockdown Megamix and features performances from singers that were recorded in isolation.

Karolina Gerlich, executive director of The Care Workers’ Charity, said: “We’re so pleased people are coming together to sing for our care workers, it will make us smile, entertain us, and raise those all important valuable funds.

“Our target of raising £2 million will enable us to continue to issue grants to care workers facing hardship due to self-isolating, shielding or with the virus themselves.”

The medley features songs including Britney Spears’s Toxic and Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive.
