'The Big Reunion' Stars Announce Christmas Single 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday'

'The Big Reunion' stars have banded together to record a charity single in the hope of scoring the Christmas No.1.

Blue, 5ive, Atomic Kitten, Liberty X and B*witched are hoping to raise cash for the Text Santa appeal but after the popularity of their comebacks on the ITV2 show it's possible they could steal the Christmas number one from the 2013 'X Factor' winner too.

The noughties groups will appear on the cover of Wizzard’s '70s hit 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday', set for release on 15 December.

Proceeds from their festive collaboration will go to six different charities and recording of the charity single will be the subject of a behind the scenes documentary that will air on ITV and ITV2.

Atomic Kitten's Liz McClarnon said: "When we started the talks for The Big Reunion this time last year, we couldn't have imagined we'd end up recording a Text Santa Christmas single."

B*Witched singer Keavy Lynch said: “Back in the day we were in competition with each other this time round we get to do one big fantastic single together.”

And Ritchie Neville from Five added: "To do this at Christmas time is even sweeter."
