Strictly's Joe Sugg to join West End cast of musical Waitress

Strictly Come Dancing 2018

Strictly Come Dancing's Joe Sugg is hitting London's West End.

The finalist of last year's show will take up a role in the new production of Waitress The Musical.

Volgger and social media star Joe appeared on Strictly Come Dancing last year, dancing alongside Dianne Buswell.

Joe will play the role of Ogie in the musical, replacing The Inbetweeners star Blake Harrison from September 9.

Joe said: “I got to see the show a couple of months back and it’s absolutely fantastic.

“I’m excited to be a part of the cast and to have now landed a role in the West End really has topped off an incredible year for me. I hope I do everyone proud.”

Joe's role in Waitress follows his fellow Strictly finalist Ashley Roberts also appearing in the production, playing her final show as Dawn earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Joe and Dianne - who have become a couple after meeting on Strictly last year - have announced their own tour for 2020.

Talking about the show on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch, Joe said: "We’re doing some dance, there’s a bit of comedy, a bit of music. Imagine a variety show mated with a rom-com. We’re writing the show now. It’s still early days."

He added of his time on Strictly: "I really loved it and I’d never danced before. I want to carry on. I fell in love with the show from day one. From the day you start you never want it to end."

Strictly Come Dancing will return for a brand new series in the summer.
