The programme will be presented by Fearne Britton, while The Futureheads will also perform during the show.

Burke said: "Gospel has always had a big influence on my music. I love that spiritual sound, so to perform such heartfelt songs in the context of re-telling the incredibly powerful story of the Passion will be an amazing experience."

Burke will be accompanied by a massed choir of local singers, along with other performers and opera singer Graeme Danby.

Meanwhile, she will also perform her brand-new song 'Where Do Hearts Go?'.

Audience members also have the opportunity to join the choir and sing on stage with Burke.
