He enjoyed a resurgence in popularity after appearing on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! in 2004.

Andre also appeared in the 13th series of Strictly Come Dancing, in which he was partnered with Janette Manrara.

Former Boyzone singer Ronan Keating is topping the bill, and '90s pop stars B*Witched, East 17 and Right Said Fred are also appearing on the same day as Andre.

The festival's second day has a more edgy feel, with The Boomtown Rats, Fun Lovin' Criminals and Peter Hook & The Light among those set to perform.

The headliners for Saturday, 11 August are still to be announced.

Advance tickets for both days of Kubix Festival are on sale now.
