Lucie Jones will join the cast of The Wedding Singer following her appearance at this weekend's Eurovision Song Contest.

The actress, who will return to the UK touring production of Rent after the contest, will replace Roxanne Pallett as Holly in The Wedding Singer for a six-week run starting in Aberdeen on 20 June.

Jones will represent the UK with the song "Never Give Up On You" in Kiev on Saturday, and has been tipped as the country's best chance of winning in recent years.

It was also announced last month that Jones will appear in a new touring production of Legally Blonde, taking on the role of Elle Woods.

The Wedding Singer opened in Leicester in February and stars Jon Robyns, Ray Quinn, Cassie Compton and Ruth Madoc. It has a book by Tim Herlihy (the writer of the 1998 film starring Adam Sandler) and Chad Beguelin with music by Matthew Sklar.
