Melanie Chisholm, otherwise known as Sporty Spice from the Spice Girls, is to make her West End debut next month in Blood Brothers at the Phoenix Theatre.

Playing the lead role of Mrs Johnstone, Mel C, 35, joins a roll call of famous theatrical ladies who have played the part including Barbara Dickson, Petula Clark, Kiki Dee and currently X-Factor runner-up Nikki Evans.

Willy Russell’s dramatic musical about a pair of twins from Liverpool who are separated at birth only to cross paths later in life has run successfully at the Phoenix Theatre since 1991 and remains one of London’s most popular and successful shows.

Mel C will start performances on 26 October.
