The ‘Sweet Dreams My LA Ex’ hitmaker is “delighted” to be backing this year’s campaign backed by the public broadcaster’s charity - which is currently funding more 130 projects worth £6.6 million - in partnership with the supermarket chain ASDA, dubbed the ‘Fuelling Potential’ campaign.

The 45-year-old singer said: “It is so important that children and young people aren't held back by food insecurity, which is why I'm delighted to be supporting BBC Children in Need and Asda's Fuelling Potential campaign.

“Providing children with a positive start in life is key to their development and overall wellbeing, and ensuring their basic needs are met with a nutritious meal helps them to thrive.

“I'm calling on families, colleagues, and customers to get behind this campaign and help make a difference to the lives of vulnerable young people in local communities across the UK.”

Simon Antrobus, the CEO of BBC Children in Need, said: We are enormously grateful to our longstanding partner, Asda, for their continued support and their commitment to making a difference to young lives.

“Over the next three years, Fuelling Potential will help us support even more local charities and projects working to combat food insecurity in communities across the UK, helping more children and young people to thrive and be the best they can be.”

Rachel’s involvement with the scheme comes after her band S Club 7 - which consisted of Bradley McIntosh, 41, Hannah Spearitt, 42, Jon Lee, 41, Jo O’Meara, 44, and Tina Barrett, 46 - admitted they would “love” to make new music together after their Good Times Tour in memory of their late bandmate Paul Cattermole who passed away aged 46.

Bradley told BANG Showbiz: “We'd all love it. I'm sure we'd love to [do new music] but our main focus is right now on the tour.

That’s the most important thing because we've got a we've got a big, big job on our hands, making sure that this show is perfect and epic.

“But everyone's positive and if it all goes well and the fans out there want to hear more, I'm sure we can maybe with something there's something for us to discuss.

Never say never, we might have a few surprises up our sleeves just watch this space!”
