Hit musical The Bodyguard has arrived at The Bristol Hippodrome.

Three-time Brit nominee and X-Factor winner, Alexandra Burke, stars in the leading role of ‘Rachel Marron’ in the UK production. The tour follows the musical's sell-out run at the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End.

The musical is based on 1992 Oscar nominated film 'The Bodyguard' which starred Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner.

The musical will run until 30 January at the Bristol Hippodrome.
