ALEXANDRA Burke will reprise her West End starring role when the hit musical The Bodyguard comes to the Palace Theatre in December 2015

Tickets are on sale now.

Following her sell-out run at the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End, producers Michael Harrison and David Ian are delighted to announce that three-time Brit nominee and X-Factor winner, Alexandra Burke, will star as Rachel Marron in the forthcoming UK and Ireland tour of Thea Sharrock’s hit musical The Bodyguard.

The hit musical was nominated for four Laurence Olivier Awards including Best New Musical

Alexandra Burke said, "I couldn't be happier to be joining the tour and I'm excited to get started. Being on the theatre stage has brought me great happiness. It is an honour to have been asked to join the team and I look forward to creating new and long lasting memories with the cast."

Alexandra Burke rose to fame after winning the fifth series of The X Factor. Her debut number one single 'Hallelujah' sold over one million copies in the UK, a first for a British female soloist. Burke’s first album, Overcome, saw the release of her subsequent number one singles 'Bad Boys' and 'Start Without You'. In 2011 she embarked on her first solo tour and was invited by Beyoncé to support her I Am... Tour. Her second album, Heartbreak on Hold, was released in June 2012 and later this year sees the release of her third studio album.

Alexandra Burke will perform the role of Rachel Marron at all evening performances. At the matinee performances, Rachel will be played by Zoe Birkett.

Zoe Birkett is probably best known as the highest placing female contestant in ITV’s Pop Idol, 2002. Since then she has appeared in the West End productions of Priscilla Queen of the Desert and originated the female lead in Thriller Live. Her other theatre credits include the Acid Queen in Tommy, and Maureen in Rent.

The Bodyguard is based on the Oscar nominated film starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner. The hit musical was nominated for four Laurence Olivier Awards including Best New Musical and Best Set Design and won Best New Musical at the Whatsonstage Awards.
