Little Mix grab their gym kit – alongside a host of famous faces from the world of sport and showbiz – in the much-anticipated music video for the official Sport Relief single, Word Up.

Video: Little Mix - Word Up!

The single, a cover of the 1986 smash hit by Cameo, is available to pre-order now and will be available to download from 16th March, with the CD available to buy exclusively in Sainsbury’s from 17th March.

The video sees the girl band wreaking havoc across a gym, with Leigh-Anne putting the London Wasps rugby team through their paces and Jade ruining a spinning class lead by Olympic gold medallist Victoria Pendleton – much to the annoyance of the pedantic gym manager, played by Chris Barrie as Mr Brittas.

Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw can be spotted working up a sweat, while back-flipping Olympic silver medallist Louis Smith joins Melanie C and the girls in an aerobics class–turned-dance-off, judged by choreographer Arlene Philips.

Talking behind the scenes at the video shoot Jesy Nelson said, “It’s been absolutely amazing, we’ve met some really cool people today. We feel so privileged that we’ve been able to have fun and make this amazing video and raise money at the same time.”

Perrie, Jade, Jesy and Leigh-Anne recently travelled to Liberia to see Sport Relief cash in action. During their trip, the girls visited a hospital treating children with malaria and a project working to improve the lives of young people living in slums. They also gave a very special audience a live rendition of the Sport Relief single.

Money raised from the single will help transform the lives of some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in the UK and around the world.
