Beverley Knight hopes Wolves players will watch her musical

It has been more than two decades since the film 'The Bodyguard' was released, but last Christmas the story of the pop star who falls for her protector returned as a London musical.

And now the show has a new leading lady. She's a Wolverhampton born-and-bred soul supremo - Beverley Knight.

Tonight she is facing the West End theatre critics for the first time.

Beverley is hoping some of the Wolves players will come and watch one of her performances.
