Duran Duran will mark their 30th year in the music business with a one-off special on ITV1 later this month. Could be worse, I suppose. They could have got Christine Bleakley to present it. Oh, they have. Oh well. ‘Duran Duran: One Night Only’ will see the band perform live and chat to a studio audience.

The band’s Simon Le Bon said: “We are very excited to be a part of the ‘One Night Only’ series – as we really like the format of the programme. We always enjoy performing in front of a live audience and this show will be the first opportunity for us to play a number of songs from the new album. We’ve spent the last couple of weeks in our rehearsal room working on the arrangements for all the new material and we are looking forward to the show very much”.

The band’s new album, ‘All You Need Is Now’, is due for release on 21 Mar.
