Flatley found worldwide fame after starring in Riverdance, which first came to prominence on Eurovision in April 1994.

He has since found success in his touring shows Lord of the Dance, Feet of Flames and Celtic Tiger.

In will be his first British TV performance in over a decade, and he will be joined by 30 dancers and musicians.

Christine Bleakley will host the one-off show, while tributes will be made by stars including Sir Bruce Forsyth.

The show will also include a taste of his new show Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games, with Girls Aloud's Nadine Coyle performing alongside him as The Goddess Erin.


Flatley said of the show: "The last 20 years have been an extraordinary journey for me and I am honoured that ITV are celebrating my story along with so many friends and colleagues.

"I'm very much looking to performing with my dancers - a hugely talented group of young people and the stars of the future - for what promises to be a very special night."

Nadine Coyle added: "It is a real honour to be working alongside Michael and his amazing troupe of dancers in the new production.

"To be singing the title track is an absolute dream, it's such a fantastic song which perfectly captures the energy and drama of the show and I am really excited to be performing it on a night which celebrates Michael's incredible achievements over the past 20 years."
