Who is the Mamma Mia! I Have a Dream host?

Zoe Ball is the host of Mamma Mia! I Have a Dream.

Announcing the news on Twitter, which was recently rebranded as X, earlier this year, the BBC Radio 2 host said: "Super-Trouper-Duper happy to announce that I'm the host of Mamma Mia! I Have A Dream."

Where was Mamma Mia! I Have a Dream filmed?

According to WhatsOnStage, Mamma Mia! I Have a Dream has been filmed against the backdrop of Greek island, Corfu.

Host Zoe Ball said filming Mamma Mia! I Have a Dream in Greece was "perfect".

Ahead of the show airing on ITV, Ball said: "For our Sophies and Skys, they're already in the beating heart of the place where this story is set. The girls can get themselves in the head space of Sophie, who's been brought up on an island in Greece. She's not been brought up in a usual manner. She's a real hippie kid. She's quite free- spirited. She's just been brought up by her mum.

"And there's Sky. When I think of Sky, I always think of all the boys I've fallen in love with on holiday who might have been some kind of ski instructor, water sports instructors, who are just hot and dynamic."
