“I made wonderful friends and I loved the character of Michelle, so I have no doubt I’ll go back at some point. As long as they don’t kill me off off-screen.”

However, Covid has hit the production’s plans and ticket sales have been sluggish.

The Mirror reports that bosses at Brighton’s Theatre Royal blame “Covid related delays during the rehearsal period”.

“I thought, oh no, what a year to leave!”
