Beverley Knight told the Daily Mail she has extended her run in the West End production of THE BODYGUARD through May 31, 2014. The musical is booking through August 2014.
"It's hard bloody work, but it's so much fun at the same time with this company. I'm singing and dancing every single night and I'm learning," Knight told the Mail. "I've always gone on stage to sing as Beverley Knight, but I've had to learn how to play someone else."
