Hollywood action star Sylvester Stallone is offering fans the chance to get up close and personal with him at a one-off show in London next month.

An Evening with Sylvester Stallone will see the 67-year-old discuss his life and career at Westminster's Central Hall on 11 January.

"I have a big mix of wonderful stories and colourful anecdotes," the star told the Evening Standard.

Fans will also be able to put questions to the Rocky and Rambo star.

Stallone said people he met usually expected him to be uncommunicative, like some of the characters he has played in the past.

"When people meet me they're often surprised - I talk a great deal," he said.

"I'm perceived to be this solitary character but nothing could be further from the truth.

"I consider myself something of a raconteur. I have a rather audacious sense of humour."

Stallone will be in the UK in January to promote his next film, Grudge Match, with Robert De Niro.

He follows in the footsteps of Oscar-winner Al Pacino, who held a similar Night With... event at the London Palladium in June.
