Brian Bennett, 46, (pictured) who is better known as Lyrickal and was a finalist on The Voice, will headline the entertainment in The Market Square as 500 women prepare to embark on the 10k Star Walk to raise money for Saint Francis Hospice. 

"I am really excited to be involved and to be there to get the party started," said Brian, who was mentored by Black Eyed Peas rapper Will.I.Am on the BBC show.

"The hospice is a wonderful charity that helps people at the most difficult time in their lives and with 500 women dressing up in their pyjamas it is guaranteed to be a great night out."

Brian will be supported by Nathanael Landskroner, 17, who was the youngest contestant on the X Factor last year and Jasmine Elcock, 14, who was a finalist in the latest series of Britain's Got Talent.

And Heat radio presenter Rezzy Ghadjar will also be there to entertain walkers and supporters as well as introduce the acts.  

"As soon as I heard about the Star Walk I thought it sounded fun," said singer song-writer Nathanael, who has been performing since the age of five and has appeared in the highly acclaimed West End musicals West Side Story and Brass.

"I am always happy to support good causes as apart from helping, it feels good and there is always a wonderful atmosphere because everyone there is also supporting the charity."

School girl Jasmine, from Dagenham, (pictured) wowed audiences and judges throughout Britain's Got Talent 2016 and has also tread the West End boards, having starred as Annie in the musical.

"With these amazing acts performing live, the atmosphere will be electric and it will be an unforgettable night out on the town."
