Louise Redknapp has announced that she is returning to the cast of the 9 to 5 musical in London after being forced to pull out following a fall.

The 44-year-old singer temporarily left the show after fracturing her wrist and suffering a cut to her chin in a "nasty" tumble earlier this year.

The former Eternal star has revealed she is fit to return to the musical adaption of the much-loved Dolly Parton film and will be back on stage on March 25.

Taking to Instagram, she said: "?So it's now official. I am going to be rejoining the West End cast of @9to5themusicaluk on Monday 25th March until 29th June. Hope to see you there."

Redknapp plays the role of Violet Newstead, originally played by Lily Tomlin in the 1980 film.

Love Island winner Amber Davies stars as Judy Bernly, the character played by Jane Fonda in the film, while Bonnie Langford appears as Roz Keith.
