BOYBAND McFly have confirmed they will switch on the Trafford Centre’s Christmas lights next week.

The band, which includes former Thornleigh Salesian College and Bury College pupil Danny Jones, will be joined at the event by Bolton’s Olympic hero Jason Kenny.

Thousands of shoppers are expected to watch McFly switch on more than £1 million worth of animatronic decorations on Thursday, at 7pm.

Also appearing on the main stage of the Orient food court will be the British three-piece R&B girl band Stooshe, The Voice finalist Tyler James, and CBBC star Mister Maker.

A number of London 2012 Olympians and Paralympians will also be at the event, including cycling champion Kenny, Sarah Storey, swimmer Heather Fredrickson and taekwondo star Jade Jones.

The event will be hosted by Key 103 presenters Mike Toolan and Chelsea Spokes.

Tony Sheehan, Trafford Centre general manager, said: “We are delighted to have secured the incredible McFly as our headline act for the annual Christmas Lights Switch On. We are expecting a really exciting stage show from them.”
