A star of hit musicals and a beloved BBC One show is heading on a UK tour - including a night in Ipswich. 

Craig Revel Horwood is best known for being the longest serving judge on BBC's Strictly Come Dancing, having been a part of the hit series since it began in 2004.

The Australian-born dancer has worked on some of the nation's biggest musicals and has become a well-known choreographer, singer, director and author.

His debut album Revelations: Songs Boys Don't Sing is set to be released on October 18 ahead of a UK tour in 2025.

The album features songs usually performed with a female voice such as Don't Rain On My Parade from Funny Girl and Little Girls from Annie.

Horwood said: "I embraced this opportunity to record these songs, knowing that it might be my only chance to give them my own interpretation."

He will be performing at Ipswich Corn Exchange on Thursday, May 22. 

Tickets for the performance are on sale on the Ipswich Theatres website, starting from £38.90.
