Emeli Sandé is teaming up with some huge pop stars and celebrities guests for a special charity fundraiser.

The Read All About It singer and multi-time Brit Award winner will come together with 90s boy band Damage and Another Level star Dane Bowers in Manchester next month.

Emeli will headline the Colour Ball on June 27, with former Coronation Street actress Sally Lindsay hosting the night.

Angie Brown and Ben Ofoedu of Phats & Small are also set to perform, and Coleen Rooney will be there to support the worthy cause.

Other famous faces and business leaders are expected at the annual event, which raised a ned donation of £125,000 on its inaugural night in 2023.
