LONDON'S Burning star Steven Houghton roared into town for a production of the hit musical, Grease.

Steven, who also starred in the TV show Bugs, will be performing at Newcastle's Theatre Royal later this month.

He posed for photographers astride a chrome-plated motorbike with three glamorous Pink Ladies by his side.

The musical, made famous by John Travolta and Olivia Newton John in the 1978 film, is set in an American high school during the 50s and charts the friendships and romances of a group of students.

Packed with songs, including, You're the One that I Want, Summer Nights and Greased Lightning, this is one of the world's best-loved shows.

Grease is touring theatres across Britain and will be at the Theatre Royal, Newcastle from Tuesday, May 15 to Saturday, May 26.
