A musical stage version of the film The Bodyguard is due to open at London's Adelphi Theatre in December.

The 1992 movie established Whitney Houston as an actress and created the hit song I Will Always Love You which stayed at the top of the charts for 10 weeks.

The new stage version stars Lloyd Owen and Heather Headley, who told the BBC about the challenges of following in the famous footsteps of Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner.
