Las Vegas Live with The Rat Pack and Marilyn starring David Alacey channelling his inner Frank Sinatra, ITV News Central broadcaster Des Coleman in Sammy Davis Jnr mode and Paul Drakeley taking off Dean Martin heads to Paignton this month.

David, who has taken off Ol' Blue Eyes in BBC 1's Strictly Come Dancing and the 2004 Royal Variety concert, said: "Audiences can expect an accurate recreation of a concert by Frank, Dean and Sammy not just during their time at the Sands, but also later in their careers when they swapped intimate casinos for arenas and stadiums.

"This also gives us the artistic licence to include audience favourites such as My Way, Mr Bojangles and New York, New York which came after the Sands period.

"Obviously receiving the stamp of approval from the late Buddy Greco, who used to hang out in Vegas with the guys, proved to us we are getting it right and that means a lot."

Las Vegas Live with The Rat Pack and Marilyn is heading to the Palace Theatre, Paignton, at 7.30pm on October 31. Further details are at palacetheatrepaignton.co.uk
