Alan Carr, Michael McIntyre and Kevin Bridges are to team up for a comedy night in aid of the people affected by the Grenfell Tower Fire.

A host of famous comics - also including Micky Flanagan, Jo Brand, Rob Beckett, Josh Widdicombe, Jon Richardson, Katherine Ryan, Seann Walsh, Adam Hills and Russell Kane - will take to the stage at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, west London, on June 27 for a charity event to raise money for those affected when a 27-storey block of flats was engulfed in flames on Wednesday (14.06.17), leaving at least 17 dead, over 70 hospitalised and dozens of residents missing.

Tickets, costing £50, will go on sale on Friday (16.06.17) at 10am.

Proceeds will be donated via The Kensington & Chelsea Foundation.

A number of stars have reached out to help following the tragic blaze, which was believed to have been sparked by a faulty fridge.
