Rhythm and blues star Alexander O’Neal has been no stranger to the limelight in recent weeks – and he will be stepping into the spotlight in Sheffield tomorrow night.

After an ill-fated appearance on reality TV show Celebrity Big Brother last month – he stormed out after a row with gossip blogger Perez Hilton, it was reported he had taken cocaine in a drugs relapse.

A spokesman for the star – famous for songs such as Criticize – said: “This was a momentary relapse, completely out of his recent ­character.”
