The stage show ran for 19 performances at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival - before embarking on a further five shows on a mini-tour last autumn.

The shows will feature music from The Carloways and Sheena Wellington, as well as comedy from Des Clarke and Janey Godley.

Each performance will feature a mystery guest interviewed by Mr Salmond. The London performance will include an interview with Tony Blair’s former spin doctor Alastair Campbell, who Mr Salmond previously interviewed about Brexit on his Russia Today show last year.

Mr Salmond said: “I really enjoy the buzz of the stage shows.

“The whole gang from the Edinburgh Festival will be back in one form or another and we will seek to entertain with some great surprise guests.

“I’m looking forward to interviewing Alastair Campbell in London as the anti-Brexit campaign is just about the first thing we have ever agreed on in politics.”
