Get Wet Wet Wet for Pudsey.

In their first TV appearance since re-forming, pop group Wet Wet Wet are set to rock Wrexham in aid of Children In Need.

Along with many other acts the band, fronted by the ever-smiling Marti Pellow, (second from right with the group at right) will perform in the Party For Pudsey concert on November 19.

Also performing on what promises to be a rocking good night are an impressive list of other UK talents, with the Welsh contingent ably supported by Katherine Jenkins, Lisa Scott-Lee and Dragonheart.

An audience of 6,000 is expected at the free event in Llwyn Isaf, near the Guildhall, Wrexham.

The TV broadcast will be presented by Jason Mohammad and Frances Donovan, while Kevin Hughes and Howard Griffiths will introduce the acts on stage and keep spirits high.

The concert is co-promoted by BBC Wales and Wrexham County Borough Council with the support of Airbus UK.

It will feature regularly on BBC 1 Wales on the night, with contributions from Wrexham being shown on the network.

The event will also be broadcast live on BBC Radio Wales and a concert highlights programme and series of individual performances are scheduled to air later on in the year on digital channel BBC 2W.

'It promises to be a great night out all round,' says BBC Wales Children in Need producer Jonathan Davies.

'I'm sure Wrexham will give Wet Wet Wet and the other great acts a proper Welsh welcome.'
