Richard Fleeshman to take over from Duncan James in Legally Blonde

The ex-Coronation Street actor Richard Fleeshman will replace Duncan James as the male lead opposite Sheridan Smith in Legally Blonde at the Savoy Theatre when he leaves the show in June.

Richard joined Corrie when he was just 12 years old and stayed there for four years playing the role of Craig Harris.

Fleeshman is a singer/songwriter and in 2003 was the youngest celebrity contestant to win a Stars in Their Eyes Celebrity Special at the age of 13. He also won Soapstar Superstar in 2006 and went on to perform as Elton John’s support act on his Summer Stadium and Red Piano Tours.

It originated from Baz Bamigboye in the Daily Mail who is a very reliable source. It's also been picked up by other established websites who are usually ahead of the game.
