Westlife To Enliven BBC Children In Need

The BBC Children in Need gig at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast next month will feature Irish-bred former 'boy band' Westlife as well as The Script.
Both pop groups will be flying into Belfast to perform at this year's massive event, which the BBC will broadcast on the big night, Friday 19 November.
Thousands are expected to enjoy the spectacular show with other headline act Jedward also signed up to take part on the night.
Also jetting in for the show will be Street Dance duo Twist and Pulse from south London; up-and-coming girl band Wonderland and the inimitable local face of May McFettridge.
Last year, thanks to the creativity, support and commitment of the British public, BBC Children in Need raised over £39m with hundreds of projects across Northern Ireland benefiting from the record-breaking total.
This year's theme is 'Show your spots, let's raise lots!' for BBC Children in Need and this could be as simple as baking spotty cupcakes or getting the boss to wear spots for the day, with every penny raised going to disadvantaged children right here in Northern Ireland and across the UK.
The BBC Children in Need Appeal is a charity whose aim is to make a positive change to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
