The 'Jukebox' boy band say featuring on the reality show's latest charity single is a rewarding experience for them.

JLS claim they couldn't refuse the opportunity to contribute to this year's The X Factor charity single 'Wishing On A Star' with the show's fifteen finalists and boy band One Direction.

The 'Take A Chance On Me' singers say featuring on the ITV1 show's first charity single in 2008, a cover of Mariah Carey's 'Hero', was such a rewarding experience and they were happy to feature on the new release.

"Three years ago we did The X Factor charity single and the atmosphere in the studio was great," the band explained to The Sun. "We visited a children's hospital and it was emotional but we felt that at least we'd be able to help. It's an experience you don't forget.

"Our fans are fans are fantastic and they know how important charity work is to us, so we're sure they will buy the single."

Earlier this week JLS filmed scenes for the track's winter-themed music video, which is expected to premiere sometime this weekend.

JLS confirmed yesterday (24th November) that 'Do You Feel What I Feel' will be the next single released from their third studio album 'Jukebox'.

'Wishing On A Star' will be officially release on 27th November and all profits from sales will go to the children's charity Together For Short Lives.
