All-Star Cast For Queen's 90th Birthday Show

Gary Barlow and Dame Shirley Bassey will be among the A-list talent at a "spectacular evening" of celebrations to mark the Queen's 90th birthday.

They will be joined by the likes of Kylie Minogue, James Blunt and opera singer Katherine Jenkins for the musical extravaganza, due to take place in the private grounds of Windsor Castle on 15 May.

Actress Helen Mirren, who won an Oscar for her portrayal of the Queen in 2006, will also make an appearance during the show - along with Doc Martin star Martin Clunes and Star Wars frontman John Boyega.

The televised celebration will tell the story of Her Majesty's life from her birth in 1926, taking the audience through World War Two to her coronation in 1953 - as well as her 62 years serving as monarch.

This isn't the first time Barlow and Dame Shirley have been asked to sing in front of a royal audience.

In 2012, the Take That singer composed the official single for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee alongside Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Meanwhile, Dame Shirley has performed before Her Majesty several times at the Royal Variety Performance.

Other household names taking part include the comedian and actress Jennifer Saunders, TV presenter Alan Titchmarsh, and thespian Imelda Staunton.

Ant and Dec, who will be hosting the celebration, said: "This spectacular evening will bring together some of the best known names in the entertainment world who will perform with 900 horses and 1,500 participants to mark this very special birthday."
