A grey, November afternoon in Bridlington is perhaps one of the least likely places you would expect to find an American soul legend and a well-known TV personality.

But on Monday ‘You Got the Love’ singer Candi Staton and ‘I’m a Celebrity...’ star David Gest enjoyed a (rainy) day by the seaside to promote a new tour coming to The Spa Bridlington this February.

The show, entitled David Gest’s Legends of Soul Live Concert!, features 10 soul legends performing hits from their back catalogue and is hosted by David, who will regale audiences with tales from his life.

David said: “It is all these great singers, an incredible show of over 30 top 10 hits many of them number ones, and I host it and tell stories about all of the artists as well as my life.”

Candi added: “What a line up - and they are all real. This is a night of celebration, and with some of these artists we don’t know how much longer we are going to have the chance to see them. I know everyone, it is just like a big family reunion.”

The show hits The Spa Bridlington on Wednesday 19 February and tickets can be booked from The Spa Bridlington on (01262 678258) or visit www.TheSpaBridlington.com
