CHESHIRE Fire Choir performed alongside a number of famous crooners in a one-off Christmas special.

‘A Night for the Emergency Services’ will feature members of all the emergency services performing alongside special celebrity guests including Michael Ball, Alfie Boe and Leona Lewis.

The show, which is hosted by Ashley Banjo from dance group Diversity, can be seen on ITV1 tomorrow at 9pm.

Tom Daniels, choir chairman, said: “It has been a fantastic year for us with great opportunities for us to support the work of the emergency services.

“Probably the most poignant performance for us all was when we sang our signature tune The Rising at the 10th Anniversary Memorial Service in Warwickshire for the Atherstone on Stour fire, in which four firefighters lost their lives tackling a warehouse blaze.”

Warwickshire Station Commander Neil McElvenny was in the live audience and said the performances from Cheshire Fire Choir were ‘stunning and moving in equal measure’.

The television performance with Leona Lewis can be seen on ITV1 on Wednesday, December 20 at 9pm.

The programme is called A Night For the Emergency Services and was filmed in London in front of a live audience.

Alfie Boe, Michael Ball, Diversity and Tokio Myers also feature in the programme alongside police, paramedic and lifeboat performers.
