Duncan James, formerly a member of the pop group Blue and currently competing on ITV’s Dancing on Ice, has declared: “I want to get into the West End this year. I’ve had lots of great offers.” In the interview on Something for the Weekend, James didn’t specify what offers those were, but given his boyband background, he’d certainly fit in well in the cast of the upcoming Take That musical, Never Forget (See The Goss, 31 Oct 2006), for which another recent reality TV contestant, The X Factor’s Ray Quinn is also reportedly in the frame. Alternatively, we could be looking at the next Billy Flynn or Nathan Detroit. Whatever West End role may have James’ name on it, he’ll first be completing his Dancing on Ice commitments. After the current season ends, the TV series will hit the road for the first time, with 17 Dancing on Ice Live shows planned for venues around the country.
