David Gest is making his stage debut as Frankenstein's Monster in a new comedy-horror stage musical.

The I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star will tread the boards in A Nightmare On Lime Street at Liverpool's Royal Court theatre and is set to be joined by Michael Jackson's mum Katherine, his brother Tito Jackson and sister Rebbie Jackson in a special charity gala performance.

David said: "I sang a couple of my numbers from the show on the phone last night to Dionne Warwick and Smokey Robinson and they were both shocked that I was actually in key. So was I for that matter!"

Tito added: "David is a complete natural for a role as a monster who wants to be a Broadway star. I'm sure he'll put all his effort into making this a huge success and, let's face it, everyone in the UK knows he is very funny!"

Sister Sledge will also star in the show, written by Fred Lawless, and set in the Liverpool Museum, where curator Frankenstein is surprised when his latest monster turns out to be American and very polite and well behaved.

David will star as the monster-in-training for nine weeks from Friday 23 November 2012.

The late King of Pop's family will guest star in the special charity gala performance of the show on Sunday December 2, followed by a dinner and auction featuring items once owned by Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Lady Gaga, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
