The tour will begin in Southampton on 12 July this year and run until 6 June 2022 in Southend.

Oduba, 35, is set to play Brad until 9 September. He said: “Rocky Horror is the kind of show you really have to throw yourself into head first… and after taking these pictures consider me fully submerged and wading in the deep end.

“It’s definitely different to anything I’ve worn on stage before, though I can’t claim it’s my first time in stockings and heels.
