Brian McFadden said: "I'm excited to be taking part in such a worthwhile event that's raising money for such good causes all over the UK. I can't wait to see the people of Gloucester on the 19th!"

Keisha White said she, too, is 'very excited' about the concert.

Three local bands have also been selected to take centre stage at the concert.

The Last Taxi (right), a three piece male group from Cheltenham with a Spanish influence will bring an unique style of music to the event.

Sub-ska funk fusion band MuneStomp will also provide plenty of entertainment.

Sarah-Jane Bungay, Children in Need producer for BBC West says: “This is a terrific line-up! We are delighted to secure such excellent bands for our free concert in Gloucester.

Top entertainment

“The mix of chart topping pop bands and a variety of local talent is guaranteed to provide the audience, both at the concert and at home, with an evening of top entertainment. The concert will hopefully contribute to raising a lot more money for this year’s Children in Need appeal.”

Last year, the nationwide appeal raised a record-breaking £30m for which BBC Children in Need gave grants to registered charities, alongside voluntary and community groups, supporting youngsters aged 18 and under.
