Captain Tom Moore Is Going To Perform At This Year's Royal Variety Show
The Royal Variety Show 2020 has announced its cast this year, and it's pretty stellar.
Comedian Jason Manford is hosting while we can expect performances from Gary Barlow, Sheridan Smith, Cilla The Musical and Frozen The Musical, among others.
But the most exciting name on the list is Captain Sir Tom Moore, who will be joining the ITV show from his home for an exclusive performance with the legendary Michael Ball, while he's on stage with the NHS choir.
Showing a live screening of Sir Tom - who is practically a national treasure now, following his fundraising efforts during the pandemic - the Opera House will honour him as a symbol of the community pulling together.
And, appropriately, the choir will be singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone', from the 1945 musical Carousel.
Airing on ITV from Blackpool's Opera House next month, the show will feature a virtual audience this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Alongside the performances listed above, we'll also hear from Brit Award winner Celeste and witness Spice Girl Melanie C in action, while witnessing high energy choreography from the eternally populargroup, Steps.

Stephen Mulhern will also be making a magical appearance, while we can also expect West End star Marisha Wallace to razzle dazzle, as well as "'a high octane and jaw-dropping performance" from Kenyan acrobats The Black Blues Brothers.
Of course, 2020 Britain's Got Talent winner Jon Courtenay, will be taking to the stage to give a musical magic performance, too.
Plus, we can also expect comedy from Jo Caulfield and Daliso Chaponda, and - last but not least - a virtual address from His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.
On the upcoming show, Jason Manford said: "After appearing at the Royal Variety Performance three times since 2009, it is an honour and a privilege to be hosting the show this year.
"It's been a hugely difficult year for everybody, so I hope that for a couple of hours on a cold Winter's night in Blackpool, we can take people's minds off things and do what us Brits do best; have a laugh."
The event is being held in aid of the Royal Variety Charity, whose patron is Her Majesty The Queen.
The star studded spectacular will take place on Sunday 29th November and will be screened on ITV in December.
