The hits will range from dance floor fillers such as Superstition and Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours to classic love songs like My Cherie Amour and Lately.

Derek said: “People love the show which includes classic hits, some lesser-known songs, and even a few Stevie wrote for other people.”

“It’s a guided tour of Stevie Wonder which always ends up with a party and everybody dancing."
