...will pose with Wallace & Gromit to promote Wrong Trousers Rocks, the first music-themed Wrong Trousers Day, this Friday.

Wallace & Gromit's Children's Foundation hope the treble Academy Award winning pair will encourage a record million people to register online for Friday's Wrong Trousers Day - when we are asked to pay £1 for the right to wear 'wrong' trousers into work or school - and raise money for sick and terminally ill children in hospitals and hospices across the UK.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu recently posed with a tutu-wearing Wallace & Gromit for their charitable campaign, and now its the musicians' turn to add their weight behind the million wrong trouser target. On Monday, in the suitable surroundings of We Will Rock You, the stars, each donning rocking wrong trousers, will pose in Freddie Mercury style and speak - or rap - about their support for Wrong Trousers Day, the money from which will fund art, music and play therapy, family accommodation, sensory facilities, and equipment and respite care for children with life-limiting illnesses.

The campaign kicked off last month with a national trouser tour, in which Wallace & Gromit handed over a total of £100,000 to eleven children's hospitals and hospices, stretching from London to Glasgow. Nicola Masters, Director of Wallace & Gromit's Children's Foundation, says 'Wrong Trousers Rocks on Friday is a day for us all to have some wrong fun. Register and rock the world of sick and terminally children across the UK.'

Members of the public can register for Wrong trousers Day on on http://www.wrongtrousersday.org. Last year, a record 400,000 people registered, with Tony Blair, Baddiel & Skinner, and Sophie Anderton among the celebrity supporters.
