Craig Revel Horwood to take over from Miranda Hart as Miss Hannigan in Annie

Strictly Come Dancing's  Craig Revel Horwood is taking over from Miranda Hart as  Miss Hannigan in Annie the Musical at the Piccadilly Theatre.

Horwood has already played  the black-hearted Miss Hannigan (pictured here) for six months when the show was on a nationwide tour directed by Nikolai Foster .

He told Baz in the Mail: She’s such a wonderful character!l . She’s drunk, and hungover. She’s nasty, self-centred and egotistical as well...which I sort of love. I play her for real. You can’t make up lines like you can in panto. And you can’t go adding any Horwoodisms. No Fab-u-LOUS from Strictly, dah-ling,

Miranda’s limited appearance ends on 17th September, and  Horwood will take over the role  from September 18th until November 20th  on Sunday through to Friday, as Saturdays will be taken up with the next series of Strictly. He then goes on to play  the wicked Queen in Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton from December 15th. 

Annie the  musical is currently booking to February 18th.
