Cheryl’s replacement in West End show revealed as EastEnders star is also cast

Cheryl has been replaced in West End show, 2:22 A Ghost Story by actress Jaime Winstone.

The Girls Aloud star, 39, received rave reviews after kicking off her three-month stint in the hit horror show in January.

But it has now been announced that Jaime, 37, will be taking over the lead female role of Jenny in the spooktacular show.

The actress, who is the daughter of renowned Hollywood actor Ray Winstone, previously took on the role of beloved EastEnders matriarch Peggy Mitchell in an iconic flashback episode that aired last year and the BBC biopic Babs, where she played the late Barbara Windsor.

Jaime is also known for her roles in hit films Kidulthood, Made In Dagenham and Love, Rosie.

Alongside her casting, it has also been announced that in the West End show, she will be starring alongside EastEnders favourite Ricky Champ, One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush, and Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll star Clifford Samuel.

The cast changes were announced yesterday on the 2:22 A Ghost Story’s Twitter page.

The Tweet read: "We’re moving next door… and we’re bringing some brand-new dinner party guests with us!"

"Sophia Bush, Ricky Champ, Clifford Samuel and Jaime Winstone make up the latest starry line-up set to thrill audiences at the Apollo Theatre from 14 May #222aghoststory"

Taking on the leading role of Jenny, Jaime follows in the footsteps of Cheryl, Lily Allen, and Laura Whitmore.

At the announcement of the refreshed line up, fans shared their excitement.

One commented: "What a great line up. Danny Robins is a great writer and the audience that go to this show you will not be disappointed and keep it to yourself people."

While another was pleased to see that EastEnders star Ricky Champ had been cast, commenting: "Yes Ricky Champ."

Fans were left confused and disappointed last month when Cheryl pulled out of a performance. The West End show announced on their website that Cheryl would not be appearing on Sunday 19 March.

The announcement on its ‘Booking Info’ page read: “Please note that Cheryl will not be performing on Sunday 19th March”, leaving fans unimpressed.

Cheryl’s debut on the West End was dubbed to be her ‘career comeback’ after she took a step away from the spotlight.
