Blackpool Switch-On stars Jedward are back in town for a charity show next month.

The former X Factor stars Jedward headline Massive Pop Party at the Opera House on Saturday, October 3, in aid of North West charity Our Local Heroes Foundation.

The show also features Bars And Melody from Britain’s Got Talent and X Factor 2014’s Only The Young - who also appeared at the iFest celebrations earlier this month.

Completing the line up are fellow BGT acts Henry Gallagher, Bailey McConnell and Gabz, plus up-and-coming Blackpool girlband Tiger Heart and new boyband Exposure.

The Our Local Heroes Foundation supports army veterans, many of whom are under 25, ‘in a variety of ingenious ways’.

There has been some confusion over tickets already sold, after the original headline act Collabro had to pull out.

Fans with tickets in some of the front rows of the Opera House, which cost £25, have been offered the chance to either upgrade their tickets to a £50 VIP package including meet and greet with an act, excluding Jedward, to downgrade to a seat further back and get a £10 refund, or to stay where they are.

Tickets are still available for the show, www.winter gardensblackpool.co.uk, costing £15 or £50 for VIP packages.
