Russell Grant to star in Wizard of Oz from mid-February

Strictly Come Dancing favourite Russell Grant will appear in Wizard of Oz next month as he steps into Michael Crawford's shoes.

The production has been enjoyed by those booking London theatre breaks since it opened at the London Palladium in March last year, featuring an excellent musical score and new hit songs from Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber.

A former astronomer, Grant won the hearts and votes of the British public when he partnered Flavia Cacace on the BBC talent show and entertained the audience with his often comedic routines.

"I am thrilled to be back where I’m at my happiest – in showbiz. I want to thank the great British public for their kindness in supporting me in Strictly: without them, I wouldn't be back in the West End again," he said.

Grant will take on the roles of the Wizard and Professor Marvel during a 12-week spell in the production, and will appear alongside the likes of Paul Keating, Emily Tierney and Edward Baker-Duly.
