Guilty Pleasures: Robbie Williams on Royal Variety Performance bill

The show is held annually and has members of the royal family in the audience.

This year, Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan will present — the first comedy duo in more than three decades.

Other acts already announced include singers Lewis Capaldi and Mabel and actor Luke Evans, with a performance from Tony and Olivier award-winning musical Come From Away.

Grammy and Emmy award-winning US composer Harry Connick Jr makes his Royal Variety debut and Chelsea Pensioner Colin Thackery is on the bill after winning Britain’s Got Talent.

Royal Variety Charity chairman Giles Cooper said: ‘We are grateful to all the performers who are giving their time freely to support the charity at our main fundraising event of the year.

‘The Royal Variety Performance enables the charity to continue our work supporting those within the entertainment industries throughout the UK and to maintain our residential and care home, Brinsworth House, in Twickenham.’

The show airs on ITV in December.
