Jessie J will shave her head live on TV in aid of Comic Relief.
The 'Price Tag' singer will cut off her raven-coloured locks in the BBC One TV marathon in March and says she hopes it will raise lots of money for the charity.
Jessie said: "Shaving my head for charity is something I've promised to do for a long time and Comic Relief has given me the opportunity to try and raise as much money as possible for good causes by doing it. I've loved watching Red Nose Day since I was a kid and I'm so excited to join this year's team of celebrity fun raisers and help support the campaign.
"So this Red Nose Day I'll be shaving my head live on the night of TV. I won't deny that I'm nervous but I am also honoured to be part of this year's campaign.
"Together with help from the UK public, we are on a mission to raise more money than ever before for Red Nose Day. So come on, let's do it."
As well as Jessie shaving her head, the charity TV marathon will see One Direction perform the official Comic Relief song, a cover of Blondie's 1978 hit 'One Way or Another'.
Member Louis Tomlinson said: "We're so excited. Red Nose Day is a great excuse to have a lot of fun and to raise money, please get involved."
Comic Relief takes place on Friday March 15.
