Now pop star Sophie Ellis Bextor will be the one of the main attractions when she returns to the ground next month.

The singer-songwriter, who lent her vocals to the chart-topping Groovejet (If This Ain't Love), has been named as the support act for George Michael's eagerly anticipated gig on June 12.

Sophie started her career as the sharp-suited singer of indie outfit theaudience before moving on to the Ibiza anthem that famously beat Victoria Beckham to the top spot in the summer of 2000.

She has since released three solo albums of dance-friendly pop songs, including Take Me Home and Murder on The Dancefloor.

Her former boyfriend was from Norwich and she is now married to The Feeling bassist Richard Jones, with whom she has a child, Sonny.
