From This Is London, April 13,2001
Claire is the star of the show
Brookside's Claire Sweeney shows she is the tops when she poses in sparkling hotpants for a West End musical extravaganza.
Sweeney, who plays Lindsey Corkhill in the Channel 4 soap, will be one of the principal stars in a show celebrating the songs and music of Marvin Hamlisch to be held at the London Palladium.
The Celebrity Big Brother runner-up showed off her singing skills last year when she won Celebrity Stars in Their Eyes with a rousing rendition of My Heart Will Go On. And on the Night Of 100 Stars, Sweeney will join many celebrities from both sides of the Atlantic to perform songs from yesteryear.
Among those also taking part are Stefanie Powers, Gemma Craven and performers from West End musicals such as Les Miserables, The Beautiful Game and The Lion King.
The Night of 100 Stars will take place at the London
Palladium on the evening of Sunday April 22.
