So, after 10 live shows, the hunt for Nancy is over – Jodie Prenger will be playing Nancy in the West End when it opens in December, and I am delighted for her. I thought last night’s final was excellent, and once again, the public have succeeded in picking a winner who will shine when she opens in the role.
