She'd at least have age on her side! There are any number of name recognition C-listers that could sell this and be more appropriate. Whatever happened to Tracey Shaw from Corrie? Natalie Powers who was in Scooch/ex-West End star? Gina Murray? Put a capable name in one of the other roles and give Mrs J to someone with a voice ffs!
Just count yourself lucky they haven't drafted Colleen into the Blood Brothers franchise!
I was in the audience of Loose Women recently (don't ask). At the end of the show we had to dance along to Coleen singing a song, accompanied by Curly Watts, John Thompson and Bear from Big Brother (dressed as a postman). I then knew what a very bad trip must feel like!!
Saw this tonight, Dean Chisnall was fabulous as the Narrator - what an amazing voice. Loved the guys playing Mickey and Eddie too. Lyn Paul is good but doesn't quite have the voice to pull off all the numbers. It was my first time seeing Blood Brothers, and I hadn't appreciated what a gripping story it has....or how long the show was!
