Robbie Williams to play Heroes Concert

Following an already incredible line up of talent announced for 12th September for the biggest event of the year, more top stars have been added to the bill of the Heroes Concert in aid of Help for Heroes at Twickenham Stadium.

Showcasing the cream of the nation's entertainment industry, names as diverse as Robbie Williams, Jason Manford, Plan B, Jack Dee, The Saturdays and James Blunt will now also be joined by more stars from the music world: classical crossover superstar Katherine Jenkins, pop beauty Alesha Dixon, latin sensation Enrique Iglesias and the UK's latest Number 1 boyband The Wanted.

The show will be hosted by the cream of the UK's comedy talent - John Bishop, Kevin Bridges, Jack Dee, Rhod Gilbert, Peter Kay, Jason Manford and Michael McIntyre have all pledged their support.
