Love Island presenter Caroline Flack is taking on the lead role of Roxie Hart in the musical Chicago from next month, and has described her debut in London's West End as "a dream come true".
The Press Association reports that Flack will take a bow as Roxie at London's Phoenix Theatre from December 8. She will star in the production until the end of its run on January 5, 2019.
The 2014 Strictly Come Dancing champion said she had been imagining playing Roxie since she was a teenager.
