The self-proclaimed "lesbian trapped in a man's body" prepares himself to Dress to Kill. For one night only, Eddie Izzard (above) dons his glad rags and struts his stuff in a show which he's previously only performed in America. Famous as much for his painted mouth as the jokes which come out of it, Izzard will be entertaining thousands at Wembley Arena, including HRH, The Prince of Wales, as he raises funds for The Prince's Trust. The remaining tickets are already on the wane, so you'll need to get in quick to get a seat.
