Kay to host Royal Variety
FUNNYMAN Peter Kay is to host this year’s star-studded Royal Variety Performance.
The comic will be joined by Hollywood legends Bette Midler and Whoopi Goldberg, plus the cast of the West End production of Sister Act.
Britain’s Got Talent winners Diversity will also dance at the show as the event returns to Blackpool for the first time since 1955.
Also there will be X Factor champ Alexandra Burke, Michael Buble, Miley Cyrus, Katherine Jenkins, Paddy McGuinness and Jason Manford.
The spectacular gala bash – which takes place in front of the Queen – will be held on December 7 and aired on ITV1 later in the month.
