Gary Barlow is planning the first hip hop charity single for charity Children In Need.

The Take That singer is planning to assemble a selection of the best writers, rappers and producers in the country including Tinie Tempah and N Dubz to work on the song.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Children In Need asked Gary to put a single together. He immediately said he wanted to get the cream of British urban acts together to write a Number one record.

“He has been impressed by the current crop of talent in the charts and has befriended some of the big names. He is really fond of Tinie and they have been trying to find the right project to work on together for a while.

“He has also produced tracks for N-Dubz in the past and knows them well. These guys are flying the flag for British music right now and they are the best choice for the track.”

Other artists on Gary’s wishlist for the charity single are said to include Plan B, Professor Green, Chipmunk, Ironik, Example, Wretch 32, Devlin and Tinchy Stryder.
