Lady Gaga will sing at Blackpool's Opera House

Eccentric American chart-topper Lady Gaga is to sing for the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance at the Opera House in Blackpool.

The 23-year-old Poker Face star is known for her dramatic stage performances, including sparking fireworks shooting from her bra.

She heads to the Lancashire resort to join singers Bette Midler, Michael Buble and Miley Cyrus.

Comedian Peter Kay will host the event on 7 December.

Urban dance troupe and Britain's Got Talent winners Diversity will also perform in front of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh as part of their prize for winning the TV talent show.

The annual show is staged in aid of the Entertainment Artistes' Benevolent Fund, whose patron is the Queen.
