Martin Kemp will soon star as the suave lawyer Billy Flynn in the West End production of Chicago.

The Spandau Ballet star will appear at the Phoenix Theatre in London from Monday, July 2 to Saturday, September 1.

The rest of the cast who will appear alongside Martin have yet to be announced.

Cuba Gooding Jr currently plays Billy Flynn in the popular musical Chicago, which returned to London after a five-year absence earlier this year.

Martin is of course no stranger to acting, having played Reggie Kray alongside his brother Gary in the film The Krays, as Steve Owen in EastEnders, and as Sam Phillips in the UK tour of Million Dollar Quartet.

Earlier this year, Martin revealed that he bizarrely has three kidneys, while his brother Gary only has one!
