The chart-topping boyband The Wanted – who scored a No 1 last year with All Time Low – will release the track, Gold Forever, for Comic Relief next month.

The quintet follows acts such as the Spice Girls, McFly, Westlife and The Saturdays to release the official song for the biennial fundraising event, Red Nose Day.

The song will be out as a digital download on March 13 and in shops the following day.

The group’s Max George said: “This song is about a day in your life that you never forget. It’s an upbeat, feelgood track and our favourite so far.

“We’re really excited to get it out there, and delighted that it is supporting such a great cause.”

Bandmate Jay McGuiness said: “We’re in a position where we can contribute to Comic Relief. We grew up watching it as kids and to be involved is crazy, but an absolute honour.”

The Wanted will perform the track on the TV telethon on March 18.

Money raised will go to vulnerable and disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa.
