The show's producer, Nica Burns, said: “We are delighted that our first national tour of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is packed with West End stars. Three are hot off the Apollo stage, and are joined by a host of super-talented performers from other West End casts - from The Secret Diary Of Adrian Mole to Matilda The Musical and Scrooge. It’s fantastic to welcome George Sampson, who shot to fame as the youngest person to win Britain’s Got Talent at the tender age of 14. Together, they will give you a fun, funny and fabulous evening.
