The Royal Variety Performance 2017 airs on ITV this evening!


    The Royal Variety Performance 2017 with host Miranda Hart airs on ITV this evening.

    The Royal Variety Performance returns to ITV this evening with a brand new host.

    Miranda Hart hosts the annual event, this time from the London Palladium Theatre in the presence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

    The line-up includes Alfie Boe, Michael Ball, Seal and Britain’s Got Talent winner Tokio Myers.

    Tom Allen and the cast of Benidorm are among the acts providing the laughs.

    Frasier veteran Kelsey Grammer also makes an appearance with the cast of stage hit Big Fish, and there will be a chance to see routines from musicals 42nd Street and Annie.

    Plus, there’s music by Paloma Faith, the Script, and the Killers.

    During one of her comedy skits, Miranda manages to persuade Prince William to shout the catchphrase “such fun”.

    Miranda hilariously addressed the royal couple as “Royal Highnii” throughout the show.

    Unfortunately the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived late to the theatre after a security scare on nearby Oxford Street, but they managed to arrive just before Michael Ball and Alfie Boe performed.

    The Royal Variety Performance 2017 airs on ITV this evening from 7:30pm.
