The 2016 tour was a huge success

Britain’s Got Talent’s Lucy Kay will return as the narrator in the upcoming production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, starring X Factor winner Joe McElderry.

Ms Kay scored her first number one album in 2014, after her debut album Fantasia shot to the top of the Classical Album Chart.

The singer was runner up on Britain’s Got Talent and following her success on the show, she also recorded the song Flower of Scotland with the band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines to celebrate the 350th anniversary of the Royal Navy.

As previously announced X Factor winner Joe McElderry will once again wear the world’s most famous coat in the UK’s longest running musical.

Mr McElderry’s title-role debut in the 2016 production of Joseph was his first major theatrical appearance.

He was just 18 when he won the sixth series of X Factor having been mentored by Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole and beating off fierce competition from Olly Murs and Stacey Solomon. Mr McElderry soared to number one on the UK Singles Charts with his rendition of Miley Cyrus’s The Climb and his debut album Wide Awake went straight in at number three on the UK Albums Chart. He has since gone on to have two more Top 10 albums, and he became the first X Factor star to release four albums.

Joining them is Benjamin James-Ellis who was a semi-finalist on the hit TV show Any Dream Will Do. The cast is completed by Henry Metcalfe, Sallie-Beth Lawless, Matt Jolly, Darren Charles, Lloyd Green, Matthew McCabe, George Knapper, Michael Lapham, Michael Colbourne, Lewis Asquith, Richard J Hunt, Amana Jones, Will Breckin, Kevin Grogan and Gemma Pipe.

The show is coming to Dartford’s Orchard Theatre from February 7 to 11.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
