Other high profile guests are expected to be in attendance.

George and Amal Clooney will follow the likes of Sir David Attenborough, Dame Emma Thompson and the Prince of Wales, who have previously been honoured by the charity.

In a statement released by the Clooneys in December, the couple said they were “thrilled” to be attending the charity gala in Edinburgh.

Hundreds of people turned out to welcome George Clooney when he visited Social Bite and the headquarters of the People’s Postcode Lottery in Edinburgh in November 2015.
