One Direction have lined up their own Christmas special on NBCUniversal in the US.

Their new album, Four, is about to be released, and the boys are undertaking a host of promotional appearances, including their own special which is due to air next month.

One Direction: The TV Special will air on December 23 on NBC in a bid to gain a massive share of Christmas viewers.

The band will also perform live on NBC's Today next Monday to promote the release of Four. The deal with NBC will give One Direction content across multiple platforms and channels including interviews about the album. Monday's performance will also be broadcast on Access Hollywood and E! News.

The boys have also signed up to be a part of the new Band Aid 30th anniversary fundraising single.

Other top artists to perform on the single include Chris Martin, Emeli Sande, Paloma Faith and Bastille.

The single has already been recorded, and viewers will get their first glimpse of the video for the new version of Do They Know It's Christmas? on the X Factor tomorrow night.

The single, which is the brainchild of Bob Geldof, will be available for download from 8am on Monday, with the proceeds of the single going towards fighting the deadly Ebola outbreak in Africa.

It will be the fourth time the song has been recorded. The most recent version was released a decade ago.
