Eva Noblezada is to launch West End Bares in 2018, as the show opens at the Shaftesbury Theatre.

This year the theme has been announced as Top Off the Pops and will features tracks from some of the world's most iconic music artists. The show will also feature a live band for the first time to accompany the singers.

The event raises money for The Make a Difference Trust, which funds HIV and AIDS projects that raise awareness, educate and provide care and support in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Noblezada will also sing a brand new song written specially for West End Bares by Mark Anderson and Luke Di Somma. She commented: "I am so damn excited for West End Bares: Top Off The Pops for MAD Trust. I had fun the first time I was a part of it in 2014 but I was such a baby. I want to bring my own fire to it now that I didn't have back then. I cannot wait to get on that stage and perform with everyone.

"We're making something pretty special for the opening with a few surprises that I've been sworn to secrecy about but you really don't want to miss it, see you there!"

Created from Jerry Mitchell's original concept Broadway Bares, West End Bares is in its fourth year and will be directed by David Grewcock, with choreography from Tommy Wade-Smith, Racky Plews, Chris Whittaker, Matt Overfield, Callum Aylott, Matt Krazn, Will Lucas and Joanna Goodwin.

Over 100 performers from the West End and beyond come together to perform as part of the event. This year West End Bares will take place at 7pm and 9.30pm on Sunday 28 October.
