"Issues of body image and online trolling are more pertinent today than ever, and will resonate with people everywhere. Despite this, using song, dance and humour I can guarantee that audiences will leave the show with a smile on their face and feeling better about themselves Ė something we all need right now. Iím delighted to be remounting Fat Friends the Musical, thrilled to be working with the brilliant and talented Lee Mead and canít wait for us to bring the show to so many fantastic venues around the UK and Ireland."while Lee tweeted...
