She will be joined by Loose Women panellist, Zoe Tyler, who has performed in Les Miserables, followed by Joseph, Superstar and also played Eva Cassidy in Over the Rainbow as well as Scottish actor, singer and producer, Tom Urie, best known for his roles in River City, Still Game and films including, T2-Trainspotting.

Lisa was diagnosed in 2017 with secondary breast cancer.

She said: “From the day I was diagnosed I wanted to raise awareness and funds to support research into secondary breast cancer.

“On average, only five to nine per cent of breast cancer funding is allocated to secondary research.

“Make 2nds Count has already donated over £150,000 to Edinburgh University to support research dedicated to secondary breast cancer and we want to continue to raise even more funds to support patients and families affected by this incurable disease. The Winter Wonderland concert is definitely a fun way to do that!”

The charity supports patients and families, raises awareness of secondary breast cancer and funds for medical research that will contribute to advancing an increased quality of life for patients.

Tickets for the Winter Wonderland concert, on from 7.30pm until 9.30pm on 22 November, cost £25 and £20 for children.
