Initial casting has been announced for the upcoming tour of The Rocky Horror Show, with former S Club 7 pop star Paul Cattermole joining Diana Vickers and Ben Freeman according to Baz Bamigboye.

The production will mark Cattermole's professional theatre debut having shot to fame in the pop band S Club 7 in the 90's. Diana Vickers found fame on The X Factor before making a name for herself in theatre with credits including The Rise and Fall of Little Voice and The Duck House alongside Ben Miller and Nancy Carroll. Freeman is best known for playing Scott Windsor in Emmerdale and has theatre credits including playing Fiyero in Wicked on the West End and last year's tour of Happy Days.

Richard O'Brien's cult classic musical tells the story of squeaky-clean college kids Brad and Janet, who stumble upon Dr Frank'n'Furter's house when their car breaks down.

It features songs including "Time Warp" and "Dammit Janet", and last toured the UK in 2013, with a cast including Ben Forster and Oliver Thornton.

The tour kicks off in Brighton in December and calls at Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Sunderland, Wimbledon, Torquay and Glasgow, with more dates to be announced shortly.
