Hollywood actor Robin Williams is to return to the UK stage for the first time in 25 years in a show to mark the Prince of Wales's 60th birthday.

The 57-year-old will join John Cleese and Rowan Atkinson in a production of We Are Most Amused at London's New Wimbledon Theatre on 12 November.

The event will raise money for the Prince's Trust.

Further acts will be announced closer to the time. The show will be broadcast on ITV1 shortly after the event.

Prince Charles will attend with The Duchess of Cornwall.

Many comedians will be featured in the show, doing a mix of stand-up and sketches.

In a statement ITV said: "The line-up will bring together the very best in comedy talent - from much-loved established names to fresh young acts from the stand-up circuit."

Tickets will be available to buy from Wednesday.
