Tomorrow, tomorrow... or, to be more exact, six weeks from now, Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood will reprise his cross-dressing performance as Miss Hannigan in the West End production of ANNIE, taking over from Miranda Hart. Can you spot the difference?!

We're already imagining a tug of war between Annies and Matildas, with some School of Rockers thrown in: so many cute kids in the West End at the moment! So, yep, the full cast - including three young stars to share the title role, plus a Labradoodle in the limelight - have been announced to join Miranda Hart in Nikolai Foster's revival of ANNIE...

Miranda Hart has 'a spring in her step' - thanks to being cast as villainess Miss Hannigan in the new West End production of ANNIE, which comes to the Piccadilly Theatre in May. We reckon she'll be as big a success on the musical stage as she is in comedy world...
