A former X Factor winner will be in the limelight next month when she takes the lead role in a musical directed and choreographed by a Strictly Come Dancing judge.

Craig Revel Horwood’s production of Sister Act will be staged at the Bristol Hippodrome for one week during August and it will feature the incredible vocals of Alexandra Burke.

The musical, based on the renowned movie starring Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith, tells the hilarious story of disco diva Deloris Van Cartier.

Her life takes a surprising turn however when she witnesses a murder and has to go into witness protection in a convent.

X Factor winners have endured mixed success, but Burke’s credits after winning the fifth edition of ITV’s talent show in 2008 are among the most impressive.

She will take to the stage as Deloris after a highly successful time playing Rachel Marron in a UK tour of The Bodyguard.

Burke will be joined on stage by Joanna Francis, Joe Vetch, Karen Mann and Liz Kitchen for the evening shows.

Burke will however make way for Francis in the matinee showings.

The show will be performed from August 7-12. There will be a nightly performance at 7.30pm each day and two matinee shows at 2.30pm on August 9 and 12.
