The X Factor and Celebrity Big Brother finalist will play Karl in the show.
Britain’s Got Talent winners Ashleigh and Pudsey and TV personality Stevi Ritchie will be performing together in family-friendly show Mission Impudseyble.
Trainer Ashleigh Butler and her beloved pet dog Pudsey shot to fame after winning the sixth series of ITV show Britain’s Got Talent in 2012.
The duo will play K9 intelligence agents in the interactive adventure show, which will be performed at Dartford’s Orchard Theatre.
They will be finding clues, solving puzzles and breaking codes as they attempt to stop their arch-nemesis Dr Feline from achieving world domination.
X Factor and Celebrity Big Brother finalist Stevi Ritchie will be joining them on stage.
“It’s a great cast,” he said.
“Pudsey and Ashleigh are great, they are so talented and lovely.
“I was a big fan years ago when they were on Britain’s Got Talent. I was overjoyed when they won. A dog has never won it and Pudsey is so beautiful.
“He’s unbelievably well-trained. I don’t know how he does it. Ashleigh’s a talented girl and a really great actress.”
Speaking about his part in the show, he explained: “My character is called Karl, he’s like Dr Feline’s sidekick.
“He’s a bit thick, a bit stupid and childish, he’s like a kid in a lot of ways. He’s a cat burglar but he hasn’t got a clue, he just goes along with what everyone says.
“He’s stopping Pudsey and Ashleigh from saving the world and he realises that he wants to be good.
“It’s a great show for all the family and kids. There’s a lot of audience participation,” he added.
He said that he is looking forward to performing on stage at the Orchard Theatre.
“I did do a show there before.
“I know that theatre quite well. I am only up the road in Colchester.
“I can’t wait to perform there again. There’s lots of old memories,” he said.
Mission Impudseyble will be running at the Orchard Theatre from May 29 to 30.
Tickets range from £16 to £19.
