Best known for his portrayal of Curly Watts in Coronation Street, Kevin Kennedy has a string of West End theatre credits to his name including Amos in Chicago at the Adelphi Theatre and We Will Rock You at the Dominion Theatre. Kevin has also played both Caractacus Potts and The Child Catcher in the hit musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang – the first actor to have played both roles. He previously appeared as Dennis Dupree in the 2018 UK Tour of Rock of Ages and has also appeared in the national tours of the musicals The Rocky Horror Show, The Commitments, and Kay Mellor’s Fat Friends.

Performer, singer and songwriter Matt Terry is perhaps best known as the champion of the 2016 series of ITV’s The X Factor, gaining a top three hit with his Ed Sheeran-penned winner’s single, “When Christmas Comes Around”. He was also featured on Enrique Iglesias’ summer smash “Subeme La Radio” with Sean Paul, which spent 14 weeks in the Top 10. Matt Terry’s debut album Trouble was released in November 2017 with the lead single “Sucker For You”, which has now been streamed over 100 million times. In addition to music, Matt has also fronted his own radio show for Capital FM and has toured the world in leading roles in Dreamwork’s Madagascar The Musical and Broadway’s Dr Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical.
