He said: 'I was very excited to tell Daniel, he's done a lot of theatre and musicals and so I was keen to get a bit of an insight.

'Him and Matthew Lewis, who I saw the other day, he was equally keen to advise me to embrace the madness and don't panic and just enjoy the time actually being up there.

'It's a very different thing than we've done before. I don't want to speak too soon but I'm really excited to get started.'
