Star of Eastenders, The Bill, Footballer’s Wives and a former winner of ITV’s Dancing on Ice, Gary Lucy will lead the cast of the smash-hit show The Full Monty when it comes to Grimsby Auditorium at the end of the year.

In 1997, a British film about six out-of-work Sheffield steelworkers with nothing to lose, took the world by storm becoming one of the most successful British films ever made.

Now, the boys are back, only this time, they really have to go The Full Monty, live on stage.
