Mica said: "The movie Fame was a big favourite of mine because it really was the first glimpse of what the beginning process of becoming trained artist entailed - I’m so happy to be in the musical."

Jorgie Porter, best known for playing Theresa McQueen in the Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks, is also joining the show.

She appeared in I'm A Celebrity in 2015, finishing fifth, was a finalist in Dancing On Ice, and her credits also include the remake of Are You Being Served.

She said: ‘I am so excited to be making my stage debut playing Iris Kelly in Fame. The musical is one of my favourite ever films.
