Now you can get ready to relive the bare-faced cheek all over again, writes Sammy Jones.
This time the action is happening on stage, at MK Theatre, and the cast is sure to get some of you feeling decidedly hot under the collar.
Gary Lucy – who has enjoyed successful stints in The Bill and Footballer’s Wives (he also lifted the Dancing on Ice winners trophy) –will star alongside Dinnerladies actor Andrew Nunn and Louis Emerick (You might know him from Last of the Summer Wine, or might have spent many an hour watching him in his guise as Brookside’s Mick Johnson, back in the day).
Also getting their kit off in the name of entertainment will be Martin Miller, Rupert Hill and – making his stage debut, so give him a big hand, please – is Bobby Schofield.
Simon Beaufoy is the Oscar winning writer of The Full Monty, and has gone all out with this hilarious and heartfelt adaptation which has been going down better than a bottle of bubbly on a big night out.
The curtain rises on Monday evening, the start of a six day stay for the work.
Ticket rices start at £11.50 with a top price of £32.
