X-Factor star Alexandra Burke will perform the ultimate Sister Act when she plays Deloris Van Cartier in a new musical production at Leeds Grand Theatre.

After success playing Rachel Marron in “The Bodyguard” - in a role made famous by the late Whitney Houston - the star will now follow Whoopi Goldberg into another iconic role. The show is directed by Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel-Horwood. Alexandra, who found fame after winning the X-Factor, said: “I’m over the moon to be given the opportunity to play the wonderful Deloris in Sister Act, a part I’ve always wanted to play. I love touring the UK and I’m thrilled to be working with Craig and his amazing creative team. I can’t wait to get started.”

Sister Act comes to Leeds Grand Theatre from August 22 to 27 this year.
