It was already a busy weekend for the band as they play two headline hometown shows at the Tipi Venue at the Open Air Theatre - the first of which is tonight - but they will now have to squeeze in a trip to the Sky studios in Brentford, Essex inbetween.

He said: "I think they had a cancellation and with Fenners being a Scarborough lad he was keen to get a Scarborough band on at some point so their first port of call was us which was nice.

"We're all massive football fans and have grown up with Soccer AM and a lot of our musical heroes have played on it.

"It's quite a big step for us so early in our career but it's exciting, and a bit daunting at the same time."

As well as a live performance, the four band members will chat with presenters on the sofa and take part in the Volley Challenge.

Freddie said: "I hope I'm alright, I'm supposed to be the footballer of the group.

"I think we're all excited to see how Perrie's going to be."

It is not the first time the band's music has appeared on the show - in 2018 their track Slip Away soundtracked the 'Goals of the Week' section.

The Feens formed in late 2016 and is made up of Adam Lodge, Perrie Bunton, Sam Dowling and Freddie.

They have already secured national radio plays on BBC Radio One, BBC Six Music and Radio X and have been championed by BBC Introducing North Yorkshire.

This year saw them book their first headline UK tour supported by promoter This Feeling with dates across the country.

The tour culminates in two sold out shows in Scarborough tonight and tomorrow.

Watch the band play on Soccer AM tomorrow morning from 10.30am on Sky One, Sky Sports and Sky Sports Football.
