He was also a finalist in ITV talent show Dancing On Ice.

Mr James will be joined on stage by Simon Green, who will play Bernadette, Adam Bailey, who will play Felicia and Philip Childs, who will be reprising the role of Bob.

Mr Green’s recent stage credits include Bruce Ismay in Titanic and Monsieur Andre in The Phantom of the Opera.
