Cruise ship Britannia is to host a five-night residency for Boyzlife, the Irish supergroup formed by Brian McFadden and Keith Duffy.
The Westlife and Boyzone stars will appear in the P&O ship’s Limelight Club, an intimate supper lounge where guests have a three-course meal before the entertainment – which usually consists of conversation and song.
For Duffy, the visit will be a return to the ship on which he competed in TV’s Battlechefs last year. He said: “We are very excited to be taking our sell-out tour to sea and entertaining Britannia’s guests with music and stories from life on the road with our respective bands.
“After 20 years on the road, we’ve grown up and it’s great to be able to look back, reminisce, and give our fans the inside track on how we felt at the time. I’m especially delighted to be back on Britannia after filming Battlechefs last year but this time I will be swapping my chef’s hat for a microphone.”
Limelight regulars include Kiki Dee, Darren Day, Jaki Graham and Madeleine Bell. Chesney Hawkes headlines in March and August, and Anne Reid (Last Tango in Halifax, Dinnerladies) is booked for mid-June.
Boyzlife will be appearing for the first five nights of Britannia’s 14-night cruise from Southampton to Spain, France and Italy, departing August 12. Fares from £1,349 per person; tickets for the show cost £49.
