Beverley Knight has announced that her run in the West End production of The Bodyguard has been extended.

Knight said that she will continue in the musical through May 31, 2014.

"It's hard bloody work, but it's so much fun at the same time with this company. I'm singing and dancing every single night and I'm learning," she told the Daily Mail of starring in The Bodyguard.

The actress went on to say: "I've always gone on stage to sing as Beverley Knight, but I've had to learn how to play someone else."

Knight has the leading role in The Bodyguard as pop diva Rachel Marron, a role played by Whitney Houston in the original 1992 film.

She told Digital Spy in October that she does not regard her portrayal of Rachel Marron as a tribute to Houston.
