Caroline Flack will join the West End production of Chicago from 10 December.

The Love Island presenter will play Roxie Hart in the show, alongside YouTube and Drag Race star Todrick Hall as Billy Flynn, Josefina Gabrielle as Velma Kelly, Mazz Murray as Mama Morton and Paul Rider as Amos Hart.

In 2014 Flack won Strictly Come Dancing and made her stage debut in the UK tour of Crazy for You. She said: "I've been imagining playing Roxie since I was a teenager. To have now landed the role in the West End is a dream come true. I hope I do everyone proud and don't fall off the ladder!" She plays the role until the show closes on 5 January.

Sarah Soetaert plays the role of Hart until 8 December.

Kander and Ebb's Chicago returned to the West End at the Phoenix Theatre in March this year. The show originally opened in London in 1997, winning the Olivier Award for Outstanding Musical Production and ran for 15 years.
