James Atherton, who played Jamie – Steph Britton’s ex who posted nude pictures of her online – will play Bob in a stage production of Rita, Sue and
Bob Too. The comedy drama about two teenage girls who have an affair with the same married man, runs at the Octagon Theatre, Bolton, from 6 to 23 September.
Dolly-rose Campbell, who plays Gemma, says her co-star Barbara Knox, who plays rita, has become a mentor. ‘Barbara’s experienced in the business, so it is nice to listen to her and see how she works.
It’s really good to learn from someone as gifted as her.’
