Lionel Richie will play in Gloucester next year in a live show at Kingsholm Stadium.

International superstar Lionel Richie will return to the UK in 2016 to perform open air concerts in parts of the UK he's never visited before including Kingsholm Stadium, Gloucester on June 26th.

I had such a great time in the UK this year and I can't wait to visit new places and meet new people.

Performing at Glastonbury for the first time was such a thrill for me and given me an appetite to do new things in the UK.

I know these shows are going to be very special. It'll be the first time I'll have been to Gloucester and I can't wait.

– Lionel Richie

The Hoff drops in to Bath Christmas Market

Bath's famous Christmas market had a famous visitor on its first day of opening.

None other than David Hasselhof of Baywatch and Knight Rider fame had a look round the German-style chalets yesterday, 26 November. You'd be forgiven for not spotting him though - it appears he went in disguise.

The Hoff was less clandestine when he went for lunch at a local restaurant. He didn't stay in the city though. He had to head for Scotland for his latest role - that of the Hook in Peter Pan in Glasgow.

If you missed it here's how he got on...and it's not for the squeamish.


WATCH: St Paul's Carnival through the years

The future of one of the biggest events in Bristol is in doubt after losing funding.

The St Pauls Carnival attracts huge crowds - but it's only been held twice in the past four years.

The festival is a celebration of the city's Afro-Caribbean culture, and we've taken a quick look back at its history.

Organisers insist this isn't the end - and that next year's event will go ahead, despite Bristol City Council pulling funding due to what it said was a lack of confidence in the organisers.
