Smooth's Kate Garraway took on her biggest charity challenge: appearing in FIVE West End shows in just one gruelling day.
To raise money for our charity Global's Make Some Noise, Kate's West End Takeover saw her attempt to appear in five massive West End productions.
She started her marathon challenge as a cocktail-maker in one of London’s newest shows, BIG The Musical, at the Dominion Theatre.
This was followed by an appearance as a parent in the finale of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock The Musical. From there, Kate dashed to The Hippodrome for London’s hottest production, Magic Mike Live, before joining Joe Sugg and the cast of the romantic musical comedy Waitress at the Adelphi Theatre.
Finally, Kate took to the stage as a wedding guest in one of the West End’s most successful productions, MAMMA MIA!, at the Novello Theatre.
Here are all the highlights from her long day:
