AUSSIE superstar Jason Donovan brings his Amazing Midlife Crisis Tour to Clacton this autumn.

The Neighbours and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat star celebrates his 50th birthday with a show packed with hit singles and anecdotes from his rollercoaster career.

The star of stage and screen, radio DJ, performer, family man and confirmed national treasure talks about the highlights and challenges, and the opportunities and obstacles of being all those things.

With a wealth of tantalising tales under his belt, the autobiographical show zigzags through his life, with stories about Neighbours, Ten Good Reasons, Kylie, Joseph, I’m A Celebrity, Strictly and much, much more.

When Jason and Kylie's characters tied the knot in Neighbours in 1988 the wedding was watched by a staggering 19.6million TV viewers.

Excited staff at the West Cliff Theatre say they are thrilled Jason is coming to Clacton.

Theatre chairman Norman Jacobs said it was a real coup for the venue.

"We are very pleased and proud to announce that Jason Donovan is appearing in September," he said.

"He must be one of the biggest names we've had.

"We've had the Osmonds, Jimmy Osmond and Joan Armatrading and Jason is right up there, that's for certain.

"It's just a shame he can't bring Kylie with him!"

The show is on September 8 at 7.30pm. Tickets are £26 from the box office on 01255 433344.
