British boyband Blue are putting their celebrity status to good use by promoting condoms in Africa.

The pop quartet - Lee Ryan, Antony Costa, Duncan James and SIMON WEBBE - have agreed to allow their number one hit ONE LOVE to be used in a Kenyan commercial promoting contraceptives, as the country battles an AIDS crisis.

Singer Ryan says, "There's a real push to promote contraception in Africa so we're glad to do our bit, so to speak."
