Celebrity X Factor stars record charity cover of Snow Patrol’s Run

The Celebrity X Factor contestants are to release a charity single, it’s been announced.

All 13 of this year’s live show finalists have recorded a group cover of Snow Patrol’s Run.

The song will help raise funds for Together For Short Lives and Shooting Star Children’s Hospices.

You can download and stream the song via Amazon Music here or Apple Music/iTunes here.

A music video for the song had its premiere in tonight’s X Factor: Celebrity live final on ITV – you can watch it below…

The single will then be available to stream and download with 100% of record company profits from the sale of each download and audio stream of the single shared equally by Together For Short Lives (registered charity no. 1144022) and Shooting Star Children’s Hospices (registered charity no. 1042495).

Those appearing on the record are rugby trio Try Star, Love Island supergroup No Love Lost, social media influencers V5 and duo Max & Harvey.

They’re joined by The Chase’s Jenny Ryan, Coronation Street actress Victoria Ekanoye, American actress and chat show host Ricki Lake, TV newsreader and journalist Martin Bashir and footballer turned actor Vinnie Jones.

Finally, completing the Celebrity X Factor line up for the charity single are EastEnders actor Jonny Labey, Glee star Kevin McHale, American actress Olivia Olson and reality TV personality Megan McKenna.

Of the group, only Megan, Jenny, V5 and Max & Harvey are left in the competition.

They’ll perform twice tonight – including a Christmas classic – in a bid to win viewer votes.

Judges Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh will pass comment but it’ll be viewers alone who determine the winner.

The X Factor: Celebrity final airs at 7:10PM on ITV.
