The romantic ballad Will You Be My Ex-Wife will be a duet sung by Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, played by The World’s End actress Jenny Bede.

Comedian Munya Chawawa will play the then Prince of Wales, Charles.

Chawawa wrote the lyrics for his solo Obey, which reflects royal scandals past and present. It will be played before the finale, You’re Always Gonna Need An Andrew.

Comedian Joe Wilkinson will play a newsboy and RuPaul’s Drag Race UK contestant Baga Chipz will play Margaret Thatcher.

Hodgson, star of Two Doors Down, who wrote the musical with Freddie Tapner, said: ‘Prince Andrew’s story is both tragedy and farce, so why not throw in ‘musical’ for good measure?

“Some might find the prospect of writing and performing their first musical a bit daunting. Not me. I found it downright terrifying.
