The 25-year-old’s single Someone Out There is part of the exhaustive soundtrack to the ITV2 hit show, which features a host of single people trying to find love in a house in Majorca and win £50,000.

The video to the song features a host of faces from the former St George’s School pupil’s home town.

Included are three generations of Rae’s own family, her partner Ben Garrett, firefighters from Blackpool – her dad Neil served for over 30 years – and a ‘representation’ of people from the resort.

Filmed in Blackpool, the video has Rae playing on the famous Wurlitzer at the Tower Ballroom, sitting in a camper van driving along the Promenade, and visited the fire station in Forest Gate.

There she dons firefighting gear, climbs aboard a fire engine, and dances in front of crews from red watch as they spray water from a hose jet.

Rae plays Lytham Festival on Friday, July 20.
