Ellison, who found fame in TV soap Brookside, appeared in the film of The Phantom of the Opera, made her West End musical debut in Chicago in 2004 and has followed that up with plays including Boeing-Boeing and, currently on tour, Calendar Girls. If she did join Legally Blonde in the autumn, she’d have to miss the Christmas period, as she’s already signed up to appear opposite Jonathan Wilkes in Stoke-on-Trent’s pantomime Robinson Crusoe and the Caribbean Pirates from 9 December 2010 to 9 January 2011.
