Sharing the news on his Instagram, Bradley penned: “Tune into ITV on Christmas Eve at 8pm to see Emmerdale take on Coronation Street, Loose Women, Love Island and The Chase in a one off singing competition called BRITAIN GET SINGING. See ya there!! It’s for an amazing cause.”

Shortly after, Bradley and Lawrence took to Instagram with a clip to tease what fans can expect from the upcoming show.

Showcasing their impressive vocal skills, both lads belted out their own rendition of the Christmas classic Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.

Their performance garnered plenty of attention from fans as well as their co-stars, who couldn't wait to show their support in the comments section.
