Kerry Ellis has teamed up with Sir Brian May for a new single.

The 43-year-old musical theatre actress has worked with Queen legend Brian, 75, multiple times over the years after he first spotted her in the ensemble of 'My Fair Lady' in 2002 and is "delighted" that he has collaborated with her once more on new single 'Battlefield' from her upcoming album 'Kings and Queens.'

She said: "I wanted this album and these songs to speak to people and make them feel something, in the same way that music affects me, and this song definitely pulls at the heart strings. And I’m delighted it features my dear friend, the Doc!"

Kerry - who since originating the role of Meat in Queen jukebox musical 'We Will Rock You' in 2002 has become known as one of the biggest stars of West End with leading roles in 'Wicked', 'Oliver!' and 'Cats' - will hit the road in May to celebrate the release of her fourth studio album, following on from the success of 'Anthems', 'Kerry Ellis' and 'Feels Like Home.'

The musical theatre superstar will share the stage with the London Show Choir when the show hits the Adelphi Theatre, and in Manchester and Birmingham will have the support of Sing Space Choir.
