Former X Factor runners-up JLS are to release this year's official Children In Need single, it's been revealed.

The track is called Love You More and will be released on 14 November.

The band say it's a big honour: "It's a special single because this is the first single that we've written and it's all for a good cause."

This year's Children In Need appeal takes place on Friday, 19 November and helps raise money for disadvantaged young people around the UK.

Love You More is taken from the group's forthcoming album, Outta This World, which is released on 22 November, the same day as Take That's new record with Robbie Williams, Progress.

Speaking on Radio 1's Chris Moyles Show, the band say they're trying to help some of the most needy children in the country.

They said: "We've been getting involved in a lot of charity work this side of the year.

"We've just launched the JLS Foundation, which is our own charity.

"This is another thing that we're doing to give back and help and support those who need it most."

JLS won two awards at Thursday night's BT Digital Music Awards taking home the prizes for best group and video, for Everybody In Love.

They also start a two-month UK arena tour in November with dates in Aberdeen, Glasgow, Liverpool, Cardiff, Birmingham, Nottingham and London.
