TV star and hitmaker Wes Nelson is to join N-Dubz as their very special guest when the chart-topping hip-hop trio head to the Yorkshire coast for a massive headline show.

Tulisa, Dappy and Fazer delighted their legions of loyal fans by reforming N-Dubz last year and announcing a series of huge outdoor gigs this summer – including Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Thursday July 20.

And they can today confirm Wes will be opening the show for them on the Yorkshire coast.

Wes’s rapid rise in the music business has seen the singer-songwriter gain more than 1.2 billion global streams and score hits in 10 countries in just two years.

After bursting onto the nation’s screens in 2018, as a finalist of the fourth series of TV and cultural phenomenon Love Island, Wes’s clear music talents sparked a major label bidding war that resulted in him signing with EMI Records.

Debut single See Nobody, his stunning collaboration with Hardy Caprio, hit Number 3 in the UK Singles Chart, before follow-up Nice To Meet Ya, with Yxng Bane, was a Top 10 smash in three countries and scored more than 100 million Spotify streams.

Drive, Wes’s collaboration with Clean Bandit, was a Top 20 hit with another 100 million Spotify streams.

Wes, who has also competed on Dancing on Ice, The X Factor: Celebrity, Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins and won The Games, said“I’ve done a lot in 24 years. Music is the only thing that’s really resonated. This is the one thing I really want to do. This is not a passion project or a whim or a gimmick. I’m in this for the long haul.”

N-Dubz returned last year, after a decade away, with the release of their single Charmer – an instant classic – featuring their trademark storytelling via the slick raps of Dappy and Fazer, alongside the sassy vocals of Tulisa.

It added to a long line of hits which date back to 2006. N-Dubz have sold 1.3 million albums, with their first two albums Uncle B and Against All Odds certified Platinum in the UK.

They have won four MOBO awards – Best Newcomer in 2007, Best Album and Best Act in 2009 and Best Song in 2010 for their single Playing with Fire. They won an O2 Silver Clef Award in 2009 and were nominated for Best British Single at the BRITs in 2010.

The Scarborough OAT show is one of five big outdoor N-Dubz gigs next summer.

The full dates are:

JULY 7                       BRIGHTON VALLEY SERIES
JULY 8                       MARGATE SUMMER SERIES
