A St Albans based Elvis tribute band had more than 700 underprivileged children all shook up in Central London on Sunday afternoon.

Elvis Shmelvis formed a trio on stage with Britain’s Got Talent act Stavros Flatley, joining celebrities and dozens of children’s entertainers at the Grosvenor House Hotel, all in aid of the London Taxi Drivers’ Fund.

The district’s very own King of Rock 'n' Roll, Martyn Dias of Chiswell Green, was delighted to appear and perform once again at the famous venue for a worthy cause.

He said: "I attend the event every year, and it just keeps getting better."

Elvis Shmelvis was asked to appear on stage by Stavros Flatley during their performance and soon led a conga of over 100 children around the dance floor.

Celebrities in attendance included former boxer Frank Bruno, several Britain’s Got Talent performers, pop duo The Cheeky Girls and Eastenders actors Barbara Windsor, Joe Swash and Jasmyn Banks.

Mr Dias added: "It’s great seeing them here year after year. Everyone has such a fun day and I can’t wait for the next one."
