Former Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle is embracing her Northern Irish heritage by signing up for a guest role in Michael Flatley's latest dance extravaganza.

Coyle will join the cast of Flatley's new stage show Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games for an eight-week run at the London Palladium in September (14).

The singer, who became a first-time mother earlier this year (14), will join a troupe of around 40 dancers, including choreographer and creator Flatley.
