Gary Barlow has teamed up with Children in Need once again for two charity concerts.
The Take That singer will be bringing together some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Robbie Williams, Rizzle Kicks, Little Mix and Ellie Goulding, for two star-studded gigs, which have been set up to help change the lives of disadvantaged youngsters across the UK.
Gary said: "I'm very excited that these incredible artists are giving their time for a special charity that is close to my heart. This year, BBC Children in Need Rocks is going to be bigger and better than ever, doing not one, but two concerts.
"There are still some great acts we're keeping up our sleeve to announce in the coming weeks and there will be a couple of surprise moments on stage as well. And who knows, I might even get up on stage too."
The event will be hosted by Chris Evans and Fearne Cotton and will take place at the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith, in London on Tuesday November 12 and Wednesday November 13.
Chris said: "I am honoured to be hosting the Rocks concerts alongside Fearne; Gary certainly knows how to put on a show, so I think guests and viewers will be in for a very special couple of evenings, a real treat!"
Fearne added: "BBC Children in Need Rocks is always fantastic and once again Gary has pulled off a mega line-up. I can't wait to present this year - we've got two nights of music which means double the fun, and I have no doubt that we're going to raise a huge amount of money for a very special charity doing amazing work."
Footage of the two gigs will air in one TV programme on BBC One and BBC One HD during Children in Need's busiest week of the year, which will see thousands of fundraising events set to take place up and down the country.
