With a new film set to hit cinemas this Christmas, it’s Easy Street for fans of Annie. But if you’re keen for an extra dose of the musical following the orphaned youngster, there’s also a new stage production to look forward to – with a famous face filling the shoes of spiteful Miss Hannigan.
Despite being the opposite sex, this male celeb shares a few traits with the infamous orphanage owner – namely a sharp tongue, a repertoire of catty comments and plenty of swagger. But, with a heap of slap and a slinky dress to conceal his true identity, just who is playing the role of Miss Hannigan?
