COMIC Relief is forming an epic supergroup with some pop favourites for the ultimate performance to celebrate Red Nose Day 2017.

Boys Aloud will include five pop favourites from some of the biggest bands, and there’s a big surprise in the store.

Duncan James from Blue, currently playing Ryan Knight in Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks, is just one of the stars involved.

He will be joined by S Club 7 favourite Jon Lee, give singer Ritchie Neville, Pop Idol star Gareth Gates and Phats & Small’s Ben Ofoedu.

Blue, S Club and give have all reformed over the years, with Blue still performing to fans across the world.

Now, the ultimate superband will be formed for Comic Relief, but this won’t be just any old reunion.

The boys will be transforming themselves into Girls Aloud, taking on one of Kimberly Walsh and Cheryl’s biggest hits.

As well as dressing up as the girls, Duncan and co will perform Biology.

Viewers will be able to see the performance as part of the BBC’s special series Let’s Sing and Dance for Comic Relief.

Speaking of the news, following his Comic Relief success with single Spirit in the Sky back in 2003, Gareth admitted it was going to be “fantastic”.

He told The Sun: “It’s going to be a fantastic performance, I can’t wait to get those high heels on and raise loads of money for such a fantastic cause.”

Duncan admitted he hadn’t donned heels since his serious back injury last year, something he is still recovering from.

He confessed: “It’s such a great cause and I’m looking forward to wearing heels again, which I haven’t done since my injury.

“It should be like riding a bike… I hope!”

The show will be hosted by former Great British Bake Off star Mel Giedroyc.
