Eammon Cox will play Eddie in the show, and Zoe Humphryes will be covering different parts.

Eammon is from Sidcup, and his previous theatre credits include Barnum at the Menier Chocolate Factory, The Wedding Singer (UK tour), Guys and Dolls (UK tour), and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (Open Air Theatre).

He said: “I am very excited to be making my West End debut.

“We are getting into our final week of rehearsals now.”

Eammon said he was extremely excited to hear he had got the part of Eddie after several rounds of auditions.

He loves all Abba songs, but said if he had to choose a favourite he would say Money, Money Money.

Zoe trained for seven years at Bird College Junior School before completing a three-year degree in Musical Theatre at ArtsEd.

Her concerts include taking part in the Olivier Awards 2017 and Friday Night is Music Night - Disney Broadway Hits at the Royal Albert Hall.

she has also taken part in BBC Comic Relief and TFI Friday Christmas Special.

Zoe, who is also from Sidcup, will be performing as a swing, covering the entire female ensemble.

She said: “It’s a lot of work as I learn and perform eight different tracks, but it keeps me on my toes and keeps it fun and interesting!

“I love being challenged and not always knowing what I’m going to be performing.

“Being a swing also has the benefit of being able to watch the show in tech and dress rehearsals.”

Speaking about the classic songs in the show, Zoe said: “I love Lay All Your Love! In the show the boys perform this number in flippers, and the first time that they rehearsed with them was hilarious.

“They were all like excited kids. This number is so much fun to watch - I love the energy.

“My favourite number to perform however would have to be Voulez Vous.”

Mamma Mia will be shown at the Novello Theatre and is currently booking until 2 March 2019.
