Other mega stars have performed in the musical, such as Nicole Scherzinger, Brian Blessed, Sarah Brightman, Bonnie Langford and Leona Lewis.
In the recent film, Dame Judi Dench and Sir Ian McKellen were among the cast, with Jennifer Hudson playing Grizabella.
For Dame Judi, this role was important given she was meant to play the original Grizabella before an injury caused her to have to leave the production, and she was replaced by Elaine Page.
Speaking about this, she told USA Today: “I snapped my Achilles tendon and went into hospital and I was all in plaster.
“There was no question I would not be playing the Gumbie Cat, because I couldn’t move.
