X Factor winner Alexandra Burke will take centre stage as she returns for The Bodyguard’s 2019 UK tour.

The award-winning smash-hit musical will be stopping off in Bristol in the coming weeks, and lucky Times readers will be able to see the action without paying a penny.

The Bodyguard is one of the most successful stage shows of all time and it will be performed in front of packed audiences at the Bristol Hippodrome from March 26.

Burke, who won the fifth series of the X Factor, proved to be a revelation as Rachel Marron during The Bodyguard’s 2015/16 run and is back once again as its leading lady.

Fans of the 1990s Oscar-nominated film, starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner, will be very familiar with the dramatic plot.

Former secret service agent Frank Farmer, played by Benoît Maréchal in the stage version, is hired by singer Marron to protect her when her life is in danger.

Farmer soon discovers protecting an entertainment star is quite different to keeping high-profile politicians out of trouble.

The Bodyguard has made the successful transformation from the big screen to the stage.

Since its West End debut in 2012, it has gone on to be showered with a wealth of gongs and has been nominated for four Olivier Awards.

It will be performed at the Hippodrome from March 26 to April 6 at 7.30pm, with 2.30pm matinees on March 27, March 30, April 3 and April 6.

Tickets, priced £15-61, are available at
