Becky Hill, Joel Corry and Tom Grennan are among the artists confirmed to perform at a special virtual Blackpool Illuminations event this year.

Diversity, Fleur East, Joel Corry, Rae Morris and Tom Grennan will also feature in the hour-long streamed event which will take place in September.

The virtual show, which will be hosted by Diversity’s Ashley and Jordan Banjo, is being staged by MTV and will take place on Friday 4 September from 8.30pm.

MTV say “It will be free to access on MTV and VisitBlackpool channels, and will feature a mixture of exclusive pre-recorded performances at home and live performances filmed inside the Blackpool Tower Ballroom, as well as the all-important Switch-On moment, details of which will follow over the coming weeks”.
