One Direction to join Spice Girls, George Michael at Olympics closing ceremony

One Direction tour

It seems like it's only just started, but the Olympics finishes in a few days time, and X Factor stars One Direction are set to take part in the closing celebrations.

Sunday sees the final day of sport, with a huge closing ceremony performance planned for the evening.

The show will feature a range of Britain's top musical stars from across the decades, with Madness, the Pet Shop Boys, George Michael and The Who all lined up.

With only one number One Direction are still very new to the business, but their huge success over the past year has seen them also invited to take part.

“It’s all hush-hush and the boys have been sworn to secrecy," a source told the Daily Mirror. “But they’ve been at rehearsals and can’t wait to do their bit. It will be an unforgettable occasion and they feel privileged to be a part of it.”

And while we're quite excited for the boys, we're even more excited for the Spice Girls, who are set to reunite for a special performance at the weekend.

X Factor judge Gary Barlow is also set to appear on stage, singing with his Take That bandmates.
