Following her emotional farewell tour, Dame Edna has been enjoying luxury downtime on board her enormous yacht, sailing the seas without a care in the world. But now she's back for one very special night and she's bringing her legendary entertainment show to BBC One.

Filmed in front of an audience, Dame Edna hosts a very exclusive evening with celebrity chat, music and of course a few surprises direct from her luxury yacht, staffed by some familiar faces.
