US star Bette Midler, Dame Shirley Bassey and Ed Sheeran are among the acts taking part in this year's Royal Variety Performance.

Singer Ellie Goulding and comic Sarah Millican will also perform in front of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at the London Palladium on 13 November.

Britain's Got Talent winners Collabro will take to the stage, part of their prize from the ITV show.

The performance will be broadcast on ITV in December, organisers have said.

Other acts lined up for the bill include the cast of musical revival Miss Saigon, tenor Alfie Boe and US singer Demi Lovato.

Comic Michael McIntyre will return this year as host of the show, which was first staged in 1912 as the Royal Command Performance.

It is held in aid of the Entertainment Artistes' Benevolent Fund, of which the Queen is patron.
