Full casting has been announced for Kay Mellor's smash hit show Fat Friends The Musical which heads out on tour in 2022.

Coronation stars Sherrie Hewson and Les Dennis will join Hollyoaks actor Jessica Ellis, and previously announced Lee Mead, in a second production based on the ITV drama.

For those not in the know, the story follows a group of friends as they are put through their Zumba paces at their local slimming club. This time round we see Kelly (Jessica Ellis) fantasising about fitting into her wedding dress ahead of her nuptuals to Kevin (Lee Meed).

Full of hope, humour, love and weight loss, the show promises a tasty treat of fun and laughter and encourages us all - as the final song sings - to Love Who You Are!   

Fat Friends The Musical shows at the following Midlands venues in 2022:

The Alexandra, Birmingham, Tues 29 March - Sat 2 April

Wolverhampton Grand Theatre, Mon 13 - Sat 18 June

Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury, Mon 20 - Sat 25 June
