Crowds are set to gather in Skegness this evening (Saturday, August 2) for the town’s annual illuminations.

The switch-on event runs between 6pm and 10pm in Tower Esplanade.

X Factor runner-up and Dancing On Ice winner Ray Quinn is set to perform as this year’s headline act.

He will be joined by a host of other talent, including local bands and dancers.

Last year, more than 8,000 people attended the event, when fellow X Factor graduate Chico was top of the bill.

Ray, who finished second to Leona Lewis in 2006’s X Factor series, will be returning to Skegness in March when he is due to play the town’s Embassy Theatre.
