Former X Factor finalist Amelia Lily will replace Marcus Collins in a touring production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Collins, who was due to play the Narrator, left the production last week on the same day it was due to open at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham.

Lily will take on the role from February 17. Until then, the part is being played by Rebekah Lowings.

The musical, which stars Lloyd Daniels as Joseph and Matt Lapinskas as Pharaoh, will tour until June 6, visiting venues including Theatre Royal Bath, Aylesbury’s Waterside Theatre and Winding Wheel in Chesterfield.
