Comedian Greg Davies is to host The Royal Variety Performance in the presence of members of the Royal family. Comedians Lost Voice Guy, Rhod Gilbert, Gad Elmaleh and Rod Woodward are among the acts lined up.
 
The event will come from the iconic London Palladium Theatre, which is hosting the event for the 42nd time.
 
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 surprises along the away.
 
Stars lined up to appear include one of the UK’s biggest bands, the multi-award-winning Take That, the West End cast of the phenomenal hit musical Hamilton, chart topper George Ezra, award winners Clean Bandit, West End cast of Tina – The Tina Turner Musical and the legendary Andrea Bocelli & his son Matteo.
 
Also taking to the stage are Rick Astley, the mesmerising Cirque Du Soleil, plus music from Sigrid and cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason. Circus 1903 will be unveiling their unique and beautifully crafted performances with their extraordinary elephant puppetry, and there will be more comedy from stand up comedians 
 
Greg Davies said: “I am delighted to host the Royal Variety. It is a role that I am wildly unsuited to and I will no doubt offend a great many people, but my Mum has a voracious appetite for meeting members of the Royal family and this seems a reasonable price to pay for the gift of life.”
 
The event is staged in aid of the Royal Variety Charity, whose patron is Her Majesty The Queen. The money raised from the show helps those people from the world of entertainment in need of care and assistance.
 
The star studded spectacular will take place on Monday 19th November and will be screened on ITV in December. 
 
The Royal Variety Performance has been commissioned by ITV’s Commissioning Editor Asif Zubairy. Executive Producers for ITV are Fiona Clark and Lee Connolly & Executive Producers for the Royal Variety Charity are Laurie Mansfield, Giles Cooper and Phil Dale.
