A SOAP star who was a household name from his days in EastEnders is bringing his 'Barrioke' show to a popular Worcester venue.

Shaun Williamson, who played Barry Evans in the soap, will perform at Drummonds in New Street, Worcester on Saturday, October 29 at 7pm.

The venue shared details of the 56-year-old's plan to perform there in the autumn on their Facebook page today.

Many will recognise him as hapless Barry Evans who also played a satirical version of himself in the hit comedy show Extras.

The post read: "There are icons of silver screen, there are Oscar winners, Bafta winners and Golden Globe winners... but are there any of these global stars that you would rather sing with on stage than the coolest man of TV - Shaun Williamson?! 

"The star of EastEnders, Extras, Life’s Too Short and more recently a million viral videos, Shaun is bringing BARRIOKE to Drummonds! Shaun hosts the event with his usual trademark warmth and teasing banter, accompanying participants on stage, creating a riotous, joyous moment that people will never forget

"This is the ultimate Insta moment, something people will talk about and want to be part of. Tickets on sale tomorrow at 10am!"
