I've just had my little boy, so I've not been as much as usual recently. But the last one was Miss Saigon, I loved it. It's my favourite musical. 1
I probably own all of them! Nostalgia wise, Jesus Christ Superstar with Stephen Balsamo is just amazing. I also love the Les Mis one with Colm Wilkinson. 1
Ade Edmondson, Stephen Fry, Anthony Head, me and Emma Bunton backstage at Rocky Horror. 1
About seven times I think! 1
I would invite Joan Rivers for comedy value, and Bette Midler because she's a legend and I LOVE her. I'd also invite Stephen Fry, I met him when we did Rocky Horror but didn't get to talk to him properly and I think he's fascinating. 1
Probably Mel C because she's a Spice Girl. She comes to all my first nights, she's amazing! 1
Of course! 1
I met Olivia Newton-John at the Royal Variety once, that was exciting. I also met Lea Salonga in New York when I was doing The Passions of Girls Aloud and I did a Les Mis challenge. 1
Getting underneath my quilt in my bed with my Walkman and listening to Andrew Lloyd Webber's Greatest Hits. It was a mixture of Sunset Boulevard, Starlight Express, Phantom of the Opera and all these songs. I remember thinking how amazing it was and how I wanted to be in that world. 1 [Love this]
Have a nice big glass of red wine and just chill out. 0
It's a smashing performance from Ben who joins Simon Lipkin in second place in the stagey league table. Oh to be a fly on the wall in his JCS dressing room.
