Yes, you read correctly – the bands from The Big Reunion have recorded their very own Christmas single, all in aid of ITV’s Text Santa appeal.
So, what Christmas classic have they recorded?
Not just content with being part of an award winning show, 5ive, 911, Atomic Kitten, Blue, B*Witched, Honeyz and Liberty X have all reunited to record a truly epic version of Wizzard’s Christmas classic, "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday".
And it’s not just us that’s excited...
When we started the talks for The Big Reunion this time last year, we couldn't have imagined we'd end up recording a Text Santa Christmas single! It's all for charity and we are so humbled to be a part of it
– Liz McClarnon - Atomic Kitten
I'm so excited about being involved with the Text Santa Christmas single ... After 11 years who'd have thought we'd be performing with such amazing acts whilst raising money for six fabulous charities.
– Michelle Heaton - Liberty X
To be given the chance to help raise money for the amazing charities that ITV's Text Santa appeal help, to bring attention to their causes and the plight of the real people they help, aiding them to make lives better really is the icing on the cake for me after this "Big Reunion" year. And to do it at Christmas time is even sweeter. Do they know it's Christmas? Hopefully they will with Text Santa!!
– Ritchie - 5ive
The single will be released on December 15th via Universal Music with all profits going to ITV’s Text Santa charity appeal.
Text Santa, now in its third year, raises money and awareness for six UK based charities in the run-up to the big night - Friday 20 December on ITV. This year's chosen charities are Age UK, Barnardo’s, BeatBullying, British Heart Foundation, CLIC Sargent and Help the Hospices.
