The stage version of Whitney Houston film The Bodyguard has received mixed reviews at its West End premiere.

The Telegraph's Charles Spencer called it "proof that if you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, you can sometimes come surprisingly close".

But the Guardian's Michael Billington claimed it was "one more example of the necrophiliac musical morbidly attracted to a cinematic corpse".

However, there was universal praise for Heather Headley in the lead role.
