The star will join the cast of the musical 42nd Street for its final run at the Theatre Royal in Drury Lane.
Bonnie Langford will play Dorothy Brock in the much-loved homage to musical theatre as it extends its residency until 5th January, 2019.
Bonnie, currently playing Carmel Kazemi in Eastenders, takes the stage from 3rd September. Her previous starring credits in the West End include Gypsy, Chicago and the original London production of Cats.
Why is the show closing?
The Theatre Drury Lane is set for a big refurbishment which was announced earlier this year. The development will bring a close to 42nd Street which opened at the theatre in April 2017 in the presence of the HRH The Duchess of Cambridge. It has been seen by almost one million people over 500 performances, winning numerous awards.
Work on the theatre will begin once the show has closed in January.
