Peter Andre said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be returning to the UK tour of Grease and to the iconic role of Teen Angel this year. I had the most wonderful time last year working with our genius director Nikolai Foster and the incredible Arlene Phillips, helping create a new, slick, sexy version of this timeless musical with the most talented cast.
"I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to also perform 2 additional roles this time round: Vince Fontaine and the Sergeant. I truly cannot wait for more of the UK to see this new production and look forward to making more amazing memories on and off stage in 2020!”
The Grease movie starred singer Frankie Avalon as Teen Angel, the dreamy guardian angel who helps Frenchie during a crisis, singing 'Beauty School Dropout'.
Grease celebrated its 40th anniversary last year, which saw some of the movie's cast reunite.
