Shrek The Musical has found its Princess Fiona.

X Factor star Amelia Lily will be taking centre stage as the production returns to Norwich Theatre Royal from June 26 to July 8 2018.

The singer's debut single, You Bring Me Joy, reached number two in the UK chart and the musician has since gone on to star in various plays.

Most recently she was the runner up in Celebrity Big Brother 2017.

Amelia said: 'I had my first taste of performing as Princess Fiona back in 2012 when I donned the famous green dress for a Children In Need special. It was an incredible experience so when the opportunity came up to reprise the role, I jumped at the chance.'
