Cunard has revealed that the former WBC heavyweight champion Frank Bruno will be hosting an "intimate" Q&A on the maiden British Isles voyage of the Queen Anne.

Bruno will appear on the 14-night British Isles Festival Voyage which departs from Southampton on May 24.

The 62-year-old will be "discussing the highs and lows of life in the ring" including his bouts against Mike Tyson.

Alongside that, he will talk about his journey with the Frank Bruno Foundation, which provides support and encouragement for those currently facing or recovering from mental ill-health.

Other guests that will be appearing on the cruise include musician Midge Ure and Broadway star Rachel Tucker, who will be performing live.

Additionally, the Olivier award-winning actress Celia Imrie will also be giving a talk.

In a statement on the cruise itself, Cunard said: "The 14-night voyage departs Southampton on 24 May with maiden calls to South Queensferry, Greenock, Kirkwall, Invergordon, Belfast, Cork, and Liverpool and a programme of exciting onboard experiences to showcase the best of Britain and Ireland's shores.
