Other performers on the night will include finalist of BBC1 singing contest The Voice UK, Bo Bruce, whose mother died of pancreatic cancer, and Dr Feelgood guitarist Wilko Johnson, who has recently been diagnosed with the disease.

An Evening With Suggs And Friends, at The Porchester Hall in London, on March 14, will also feature a live house band including former Pretenders guitarist Robbie McIntosh.

Alex Ford, chief executive officer of Pancreatic Cancer UK, said: "We are thrilled to benefit from this wonderful evening with Suggs and friends, organised for us by the Gig Company.

"We hope the evening will raise much needed funds, but also, importantly, the profile of this dreadful disease. There is so much to be done to improve survival rates from this most fatal of cancers."
