David Cameron will make his latest Comic Relief appearance by starring in a music video with teen heart-throbs One Direction, a spokesman for the charity said.

Mr Cameron has followed in the footsteps of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown in getting involved in the fundraiser, which has raised £800 million since 1985 to help alleviate poverty.

He appears in the official video for One Direction's official Comic Relief single, a cover version medley of Blondie's One Way or Another and the Undertones' Teenage Kicks.

"Yes, he is in it," the spokesman said, but was unable to say what his role included.

The Prime Minister did not appear in clips from the video shown during Saturday's Let's Dance for Comic Relief.
