Lee and his then wife, Denise Van Outen, go head to head ... both nominated in the 2011 Whats On Stage Theatregoers' Choice Awards Best Takeover in a Role category, he for Wicked, she for Legally Blonde. They were up against strong competition from fellow nominees Rachel Tucker (for Wicked), Ben Richards (Priscilla), Griff Rhys-Jones and Kerry Ellis (both for Oliver).
Nominations were announced on 3 December 2010 at the Awards Launch held at the West End's Cafe de Paris.
The award (announced in February 2011) deservedly went to Rachel Tucker, with Kerry Ellis second and Lee third in the voting. Once upon a time, full results in all categories could be found on the WOS Awards website but they seem to have deleted their archive beyond the most recent four years!
