  • Show stars Lee Mead

Fat Friends the Musical is headed out on a new UK and Ireland tour from January 2022, visiting the Bristol Hippodrome in July.

The show, featuring original music by Nicholas Lloyd Webber, will star Lee Mead as Paul.

It’s based on the ITV show Fat Friends, which starred James Corden and Ruth Jones. The musical brings the pals back together through Zumba and slimming club whilst Kelly fantasises about fitting into the wedding dress of her dreams.

“Issues of body image and online trolling are more pertinent today than ever, and will resonate with people everywhere,” show creator Kay Mellor said.

“Despite this, using song, dance and humour I can guarantee that audiences will leave the show with a smile on their face and feeling better about themselves – something we all need right now. I’m delighted to be remounting Fat Friends the Musical, thrilled to be working with the brilliant and talented Lee Mead and can’t wait for us to bring the show to so many fantastic venues around the UK and Ireland.”

Fat Friends will be coming to Bristol Hippodrome from Monday 04 – Saturday 09 July 2022, with tickets on sale now:
