The 29-year-old is fresh from starring in the London Palladium’s pantomime Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs alongside Dawn French and Julian Clary and will be teaming up with long-standing cast member Ole for the show’s side-splitting comedy sketches.

Strictly star Vincent Simone and actor Warwick Davis are amongst the celebrities who’ve pledged their support for the performer by sending him video messages congratulating him on his new role.

Jamie said: “I’m delighted to be joining the iconic show The Lady Boys of Bangkok. To be able to perform every night with such a talented and professional group of artistes is an amazing experience.

“It’s a privilege to be joining the show on its 21st year and I am looking forward to touring with sixteen of the world’s most glamorous showgirls – who just happen to be men!”
