Dancefloor queen Grace Jones is to join the line-up for the Diamond Jubilee concert next month.

The Slave To The Rhythm star has been added to a bill featuring Robbie Williams, Sir Tom Jones, Ed Sheeran, JLS and Jessie J for the show, which takes place in front of Buckingham Palace.

Also added to the list of acts is soprano Renee Fleming who has performed at events around the world including Barack Obama's presidential inaugural celebration and the Beijing Olympics.

The show, organised by Gary Barlow, is being attended by the Queen, as well as the Duke of Edinburgh and other members of the Royal Family.

Grace said: "From one working woman to another, it is an honour to serve her."

The stage will be at the Queen Victoria Memorial which stands directly in front of the palace and the concert will be broadcast on BBC1 and on Radio 2.
