Harry Judd, Aston Merrygold Louis Smith and Jay McGuinness to appear in Rip It Up at Garrick next year

The dance show Rip It Up starring Harry Judd, Aston Merrygold and  Louis Smith has just finished a successful UK tour and is now transferring into  the Garrick Theatre from 7th  February for four months until 2nd  June,  starring the original cast members plus The Wanted's Jay McGuinness.

Smith formally announced his retirement from competitive gymnastics today saying: Gym has given me everything – it gave me the tools necessary to channel my ADHD throughout my childhood, and as I grew up through the sport, I very quickly found a purpose in life, and it has made me the person I am today. From a young age it became my dream to compete at an Olympic Games and represent Great Britain, so to have had the opportunity to do that on three separate occasions, and bring home four Olympic medals in the process, is something I will forever cherish and for which I am eternally grateful.

The show  will feature Merrygold and McGuinness singing, Judd on drums, and Smith performing gymnastic feats to songs  by artists including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Beach Boys, The Byrds, The Doors, and The Mamas and The Papas..

McGuinness said: I'm really looking forward to joining the cast as the undoubtedly best-looking member! Louis, Aston and Harry put on an amazing show touring with the '60s and I'm so grateful to be joining them.
