Needless to say, I don't know who many of them are. I'll be watching for Les Mis though.

When they say 'Cast of Wizard of Oz' does that mean more than just Danielle? If Michael Crawford performs that'll be worth sitting through Cheryl Cole!

I couldn't tell you darling.

I have a few question marks about Les Mis too. It can't be the 25th anniversary production...could be concert cast, but that would be expensive...why would they bump out the old West-End production? Apart from Gareth Gates...

The Chelsea Pensioners have an album out, which is why they are on. Daniel is lovely Daniel from Dancing on Ice. He's the one who normally gets paired with someone from Emmerdale and he's supposed to be skating!

Colm Wilkinson leaked that he was going to be doing the show as part of a repeat of the four Valjeans they did at the O2. There is to be a show at Queen's that night, as Simon Bowman's understudy confirmed he'd be on that night, but the original press release does say there is to be a medley of songs from Les Miserables, so hopefully a few of them will get away.

Spellbound are the act that won Britain's Got Talent.

It's the 25th anniversary of LES MIS, of COURSE they'll be on the Royal Variety (they've done it umpteen times before).

And most of the people you don't know Mama are stand up comedians, always a staple of the Royal Variety Performance. Looking forward to Sarah Millican's set because she's awesome.

I like Jack Whitehall, very friendly when being the warm up guy at a tv show I was at.

I'm sad if Les Mis is the only show doing a slot(assuming WOZ is just Danielle), but then there isnt really anything new thats suitable, which is so sad.

Sarah Millican is a comedian and one of the few who actually makes me laugh.

"The Chelsea Pensioners have an album out, which is why they are on."

How come The Chelsea Pensioners have recorded an album? Have they turned into a choir?

There seem to be albums of the same set of songs recorded every christmas by various groups, some welsh choir, preists, soldiers, chelsea pensioners, choirboys, nuns......

I dont understand why. Other than solving an awkward relative gift problem.

The Chelsea Pensioners are raising money to do up their digs. Apparently they have to walk a long way down the corridor to the nearest toilet, which is a bit of a problem for older gentlemen.
