Mr Conley will play the ultimate showman, PT Barnum, when the UK tour of his life story comes to Norwich Theatre Royal in March.

The production - co-produced by Cameron Mackintosh and Michael Harrison - follows the story of the promoter PT Barnum, his marriage to his devoted wife Chairy, and how the two transformed lavish ideas into show stopping spectacles enjoyed by thousands and thousands of people.

Mr Conley - well known for his ITV programme The Brian Conley Show - previously played Fagin in Oliver! at Norwich Theatre Royal in summer 2012.

Meanwhile the role of Chairy Barnum will be played by Broadway and West End performer Linzi Hateley, who won an Olivier Award for her performance as The Narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Barnum is at Norwich Theatre Royal from March 3 to 14. Tickets £6.50-£49. For more information and to book tickets, visit www.theatreroyalnorwich.co.uk or call the box office on 01603 630000.
