Footballer’s wife Louise Redknapp is set to reprise her role in the hit musical, 9 to 5, in Glasgow later this year.

The announcement comes ahead of the show being performed at the city’s King’s Theatre on August 24.

It will be one of the first full scale musicals to tour the UK in 2021 following the coronavirus pandemic.

Redknapp will play the part of ‘Violet Newstead’, as she did when the show opened in London’s West End at the Savoy Theatre in 2019.

Louise Redknapp will reprise her role as Violet Newstead, coming to the King’s Theatre.

“I am so proud that 9 to 5 will be coming back soon to theatres all across the UK,” she said.

“Louise has been wonderful since she led the show in the West End and we’re all so excited to give audiences the best night out after we have all waited so long!”.
