McFly star Danny Jones has told how growing up without a father made him want to help the victims of the Grenfell Tower disaster.

The 31-year-old singer told how he “never dealt” with the emotional impact of his father leaving the family home as a teenager and called on Londoners to ensure victims of the devastating blaze are “never forgotten”.

Jones will pull his football boots on to play in a charity match on Saturday at 3pm in aid of victims of the blaze.

He joins a line-up of celebrities and stars of the game in Saturday’s match. Yesterday the Standard revealed Sir Mo Farah will be playing, alongside actor Damian Lewis, singers Olly Murs, Tinie Tempah and Marcus Mumford and ex-footballers Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand and David Seaman.

Funds from the #Game4Grenfell match at QPR’s Loftus Road ground will go through the London Community Foundation to the Evening Standard Dispossessed Fund before being distributed to survivors and towards community projects. 

Jones said his father “should have been there but he wasn’t”. 

“What we can’t allow to happen is the victims of Grenfell to one day say the same thing about us.”

Tickets for #Game4Grenfell are £15 adults, £5 concessions. call the QPR box office on 08444 777 007 or visit game4grenfell.com, where you can also donate.
