It’s that time of the year when some of Britain’s biggest stars entertain royalty – or some brownnosers try to suck up to some posh people, depending on your opinion. Hosted this year by David Walliams, this year’s Royal Variety Performance takes place at the Hammersmith Apollo in front of Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall. Among those performing are Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow singing together, as well as Barry Gibb, Sting, ABC and Diversity. There are also Cirque de Soleil, Britain’s Got Talent winning magician Richard Jones, and comedians Rob Beckett, Alan Davies and Joe Lycett. The Royal Variety Performance 2016 is on ITV at 19.30.
