Louise Howarth, 50, of Barton Close, in Tarring, is a member of the Games Maker Choir - a collection of more than 100 singers who met while volunteering at last year’s Olympic games in London.

The choir will perform six songs, including last year’s Christmas single, We Wish For You The World, as well as the national anthems of the four nations playing on the day.

Louise, a clerical officer at Worthing hospital, said: “I’m very excited and very nervous about the fact it is in front of 80,000 people.

“I have never been to Wembley before so this will be a new experience for me.”
