»Comedy legend Bobby Davro is coming to Southend for one night only.

The comedian will be presenting an extra special evening of nostalgia, live music and comedy at the Cliffs Pavilion in Station Road on Saturday, July 14.

Star of Saturday night TV, Bobby was most recently seen playing EastEnders’ loveable rogue Vinnie Monks.

He also joined Peter Kay on Comic Relief’s number one hit 500 Miles and got his skates on for Dancing on Ice.

Joining Bobby on the night, will be Opportunity Knocks winners, Essex boys Triple Cream, whose comedy music show featured on a six-week run on national TV – on Bobby Davro’s show during the 1980s.

Hosting the evening is Johnny Clark.

Johnny, an accomplished comedian and compere, has welcomed Bobby on stage locally on many previous occasions.

Completing the line-up are two stars of TV’s Eurovision Song Contest.

Songbird Belle of Belle and the Devotions narrowly missed out on following in Abba’s footsteps with a winning entry in the 1984 Eurovision Song Contest – the top 20 hit Love Games.

She will be performing this and her many other eighties hits.

Fresh-faced Josh Dubovie, from Laindon, represented the UK in the 2010 competition, aged only 19. He will be performing the Peter Waterman/Mike Stock/ Steve Crosby-written entry That Sounds Good To Me plus songs from his swing-influenced live show.

Tickets for the show cost £24 and concessions at £23 from the box office on 01702 351135.
