If true, they will be joining the likes of Rita Ora, Robbie Williams, Louisa Johnson, James Arthur, Emeli Sande, Craig David, Stormzy and Skepta, as well as iconic sixties band The Who on the song.

Simon Cowell has recruited some major stars for his charity single to raise money for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire in London.

The single will be a cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and will feature the One Direction singer performing alongside a variety of other British musicians.

While Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson have confirmed to perform the single on Sunday, Harry Styles and Niall Horan are reportedly trying to free up some time.

The project is being steered by Simon Cowell, who has a long-standing relationship with One Direction since the X Factor days and asked the boys to be on the single.

A source said: "If all four (One Direction) came on board, it would be as solo acts as Liam has to record in the U.S.".

"I don't think £5 million is going to touch the sides, and I don't think it even amounts to the amount of compensation that people deserve".

Simon previously told Good Morning Britain, "I hope it will prick a few people's consciousness and it might spur someone on to do something else".

We only started 24 hours ago and already we are getting calls coming in, mainly from Brits.

Cowell also talked about what an impact the tragedy had had on him personally.

'I feel honoured to be a part of it so to be here today is really important.

"I would love to get Adele on the record, after she did what she did", he said.

"Seeing the building it made a big impact".

"You sit there and watch the news and go back and think, 'what the f*** do you do?'"

Paloma Faith blasted the Government for not doing enough to help victims. "I'm really hoping that it does well".

Hopefully this single will help add a little more to the much-needed pot.
