Other acts on the bill include comedians Joe Lycett, Alan Davies and Rob Beckett; stage musical preview performances from Gary Barlow's musical ‘The Girls’, Gershwin’s ‘An American In Paris’ and ‘Dreamgirls’; and ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ winners in the shape of magician Lance Corporal Richard Jones, who won this year’s competition, and dance collective Diversity, who are previous winners.

Surviving Bee Gee Barry Gibb, Joe Jonas’s side project DNCE, and ‘Funny Girl’ actress Sheridan Smith complete the line-up.

The event is staged annually to raise funds for the Royal Variety Charity, formerly the Entertainment Artistes' Benevolent Fund, of which the Queen is patron. It aims to help people from the world of entertainment in need of care and assistance.

Announcing details on Wednesday night (November 2nd), ITV commented: “The show promises to be an unforgettable evening of the best UK and international musical performers, extraordinary theatre, and brilliant comedy as well as a number of sensational surprises.”
