WARRINGTON’S Kym Marsh will be starring in the official Take That musical alongside her daughter Emilie Cunliffe.

This morning, Monday, it has been revealed that the talented mum and daughter duo will be starring as Rachel and Young Rachel in the Greatest Days.

The musical will embark on a major UK and Ireland tour from May 6 and will coincide with the summer 2023 release of the official movie version of the smash-hit musical, starring Aisling Bea and Jayde Adams.

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of Take That’s first ever UK number 1 single, Pray, Greatest Days features more than 15-record breaking songs alongside a heart-warming and hilarious story of love, loss and laughter from the award-winning writer Tim Firth.

The musical follows a group of five best friends in the 1990s who are obsessed with their favourite boy band. The girls then reunite more than 20 years later with a plan to see their heartthrobs one last time in what could be the Greatest Days of their lives.

Actress, presenter and singer Kym said: “I’m delighted to be returning to theatre and joining the cast of Greatest Days.

“I was in my early twenties when Take That were at the height of their fame and, of course, I was a huge Take That fan – who wasn’t?

“Their music takes me back to so many special times in my life as it will for so many other people.

“I’m thrilled to be working with my daughter, Emilie, too.

“She’s a real talent and I can’t wait to share the stage with her.

“Greatest Days is a wonderful, uplifting show with iconic music, a great storyline and I know people will love it.”

Kym’s daughter Emilie has been singing and performing for as long as she can remember.

Having trained with Carol Godby’s Theatre Workshop from a young age, she has appeared on BBC One’s The Voice and ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent. Emilie has recently finished recording her debut album which will be released later this year.

She added: “I’m really excited to be joining the cast of Greatest Days. I grew up listening to Take That with mum, so what an honour it is to be part of this brilliant musical celebrating their music. I’m really close to my mum and getting to work with her is a dream come true.”

Further casting is to be announced.
