Steps star will star in West End show

After the scandal surrounding this year’s Celebrity Big Brother, a lot of the housemates have been rethinking their careers.

But untarnished by the debacle, the show has been good for Ian ‘H’ Watkins’ CV.

The former Steps star, 31, has landed the lead role of Nick in a West End production of Fame which is due to open in May.

It means the singer has had to pull out of plans for a Steps reunion – leaving his old bandmates in the lurch.

If you ask us it’s just as well. We can’t take anymore pop group revivals.
