Strictly Come Dancing winner Ellie Leach is set to make her stage acting debut in the UK tour of Cluedo 2.

The 22-year-old Coronation Street will replace fellow Corrie star Helen Flanagan in the role of Miss Scarlett after she was “advised to withdraw for medical reasons”.

Leach, who won the dancing competition alongside Vito Coppola, will star opposite Casualty and Heartbeat actor Jason Durr as Colonel Mustard in the five-month tour of the new comedy mystery.

Cluedo 2 comes to Glasgow's Theatre Royal from June 4 to June 8.

Ellie said: “After an incredible year I’m so excited to join the cast of Cluedo 2.

“I am delighted to make my stage acting debut as Miss Scarlett and I can’t wait to work with Jason and the talented cast.”

Jason, 56, described himself as a “huge fan” of the original board game growing up.

He said: “I am looking forward to bringing laughter and this ultimate whodunnit to audiences across the UK in its 75th anniversary year.

The world premiere of the production will kick off at London’s Richmond Theatre on February 29, travelling across the UK before closing at the Alexandra Theatre in Birmingham on July 27.
