Strictly Come Dancing winner and The Wanted star Jay McGuiness will appear in the role of Josh Baskin.

He's joined by Girls Aloud star and fellow Strictly finalist Kimberley Walsh as Susan Lawrence with Wendi Peters as Mrs Baskin and Matthew Kelly as George MacMillan.

Appearing on ITV's Lorraine, Kimberley said: "It's lovely working with Jay, it's going to be a fun show. Jay is so perfect for the role, he embodies the character of Josh. Tom Hanks is a hard act to follow but I think he does a fantastic job.

"There's some gorgeous music in it, I love the score, it's so uplifting."

Kimberley, who previously appeared in Shrek The Musical, added: "I love being on stage, I haven't done a show for four years! "
