Band Aid 30 official video released: watch it here

The charity song and video were both recorded and released in just 24 hours

The video for the Band Aid 30 single, featuring artists such as One Direction, Sam Smith and Ellie Goulding, today made its debut online.

Recorded on Saturday 15th November in aid of the fight against Ebola, the song was recorded, mixed and mastered, with a video made, in just 24 hours. Other stars among the long list of those who took part include Ed Sheeran, Coldplay’s Chris Martin and Bono.

Band Aid hopes the graphic images of Ebola victims and hard-hitting lyrics will help to raise money that will go towards anti-Ebola charities.

The video was shown for the first time on British television on Sunday 16th November, when organiser Bob Geldof - who was also behind the 1984 original - presented the song on X Factor UK.

WARNING: Viewers may find some of the images in the video upsetting.
