Sir Bob Geldof: 'I love criticism of Band Aid'

Band Aid 30's latest version of the charity single Do They Know It's Christmas? features a range of the UK's current pop stars, such as One Direction and Ed Sheeran. The digital version has already gone to number one in 69 countries, and has raised over $1m for the Ebola crisis in West Africa.

Despite this, there has still been some criticism of the lyrics and of celebrity activism.

Sir Bob Geldof told BBC News these complaints do not bother him, because the debate has helped raise the profile of the Band Aid campaign.
