Russell Watson to perform at Blackpool Illuminations
Opera star Russell Watson has been added to the line-up that will see Robbie Williams flick the switch on this year's Blackpool Illuminations.
The singer will also be joined by X Factor finalist Olly Murs.
Strictly come Dancing star Alesha Dixon will also be appearing at the launch on Friday 3 September.
Blackpool council said demand for tickets to the event had been overwhelming with 120,000 applications for 15,000 places.
Successful applicants will find out if they have managed to get a ticket in just over a week's time.
Blackpool Council leader Peter Callow said: "This is an absolutely brilliant star line-up. It will be a fantastic event and a wonderful evening for everyone."
The illuminations will remain switched on for 66 nights until 7 November.
