1D and Chris Martin in new Band Aid

The single will not be available for streaming on Spotify until January.

Sir Bob said that he had written to David Bowie to ask him to "reintroduce the video like he did 30 years ago".

He said that the lyrics had been re-tweaked because Africa was now "booming".

The original version, a response to the famine which was causing a huge death toll in Ethiopia, was released in 1984 and went on to sell 3.7 million copies and raise
