"Children unite for Ex-Pop stars in Need"

From the BBC:

Children are to unite for their annual exposure to pop stars who ceased being famous before they were born.

Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O'Meara, Hannah Spearritt and Rachel Stevens will perform a medley of their greatest hits on the BBC appeal show on 14 November.

The BBC also provided free publicity to the group in 2000, when they released Never Had a Dream Come True, which reached number one as a result.

"This is going to be, er, interesting," the children said, "We ended up watching BBC Ex-Pop stars in Need last year as well, mainly because our parents wanted to watch it. Didn't recognise any of them, if truth be told."
