This evening's Best Of British themed show will see the remaining acts singing classic tracks by British acts.

Union J will be dedicating their 'special' performance to George Shelley's brother, Will, who is currently serving in the Royal Marines.

Mum to Will and George told This Is Somerset that the group would be showing respect to the bravery of British soldiers through their song.

“George has a special place in his heart for the Royal Marines as his brother is a serving Royal Marines Commando," she explained. “The theme of this weekend is Best of British and George and Union J feel that our forces are one of the best things about Britain.”
