Former Dinner Ladies stars Shobna Gulati and Sue Devaney will join Sara Poyzer in Mamma Mia!, when the international tour of the musical plays in Liverpool next year.

Liverpool will be the only place outside of London to host the production in the UK next year.

Poyzer will play Donna Sheridan, with Gulati as Tanya and Devaney as Rosie.

As well as starring in Dinner Ladies together, both Gulati and Devaney have also appeared in Coronation Street.

Other cast members include Richard Standing as Sam Carmichael and Niamh Perry as Sophie Sheridan.

At some performances, the role of Donna will be played by Francesca Ellis.

The show will run at the Liverpool Empire from February 20 to March 14, 2015.

The tour is produced by Judy Craymer, Richard East and Bjorn Ulvaeus for Littlestar, in association with Universal, Stage Entertainment and NGM.
