A boyband member from Luton has recreated the iconic image of England’s 1966 World Cup win for Sport Relief.

Jaymi Hensley, 23, from Stopsley, and his band Union J posed to showcase the new Sport Relief t-shirts which are on sale in selected Sainsbury’s stores for the appeal.

It’s the first time the band has been involved with Sport Relief, a charity which asks the nation to get active, raise money and change lives.

Jaymi said: “We’ve had an amazing time on the shoot. It’s not every day you get to recreate an iconic image from English sporting history, especially with the World Cup so close. Everyone should get involved and join in the fun - simply grab your gear from Sainsbury’s and sign up for the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games at sportrelief.com.”

Sainsbury’s is inviting sports fans, young and old, to get ready and show their support for the charity by picking up the official merchandise, including the Headband, T-Shirt and All-in-One from their nearest store.

A Sainsbury’s spokesman said: “Knowing how many millions of followers they have, it’s fantastic to see the Union J guys donning the official merchandise and getting ready for the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games.

“We’ve been a supporter of Comic Relief since 1999 and for Sport Relief 2012 we raised a huge £5.5m; but this year we’re hoping that the merchandise and Games are more popular than ever before to help us make an even bigger difference to those in need both here and overseas.”
