Lee Mead to star in new tour of Fat Friends - The Musical

Fat Friends - The Musical will return next year for a UK and Ireland tour starring Lee Mead as lovelorn vicar Paul, with further casting to be announced soon.

Based on the ITV hit comedy show Fat Friends, that starred James Corden and Ruth Jones, the show is written by original creator Kay Mellor and features original music by Nicholas Lloyd Webber.

Produced by Joshua Andrews, the tour kicks off at Dartford Orchard Theatre on 14 January 2022.

Lee Mead's West End credits include Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Legally Blonde and Wicked. He has also been a regular on Casualty and then Holby City in the role of Lofty. He said: "I saw the show when it first ran and absolutely loved it, so I can't wait to now play the lovelorn vicar, Paul. I'm so looking forward to performing live again to wonderful audiences around the country and working with the incredible and iconic Kay Mellor."
