Former Gardener's World queen Charlie Dimmock is back on the showbiz scene with her new role in Calendar Girls.
The flame-haired horticulturist has signed up for an initial 12-week tour of the play in the role of Celia, the more curvaceous member of the team, previously portrayed by Jerry Hall and currently played by Kelly Brook.
"Something about Charlie Dimmock and (the show) fits perfectly," says producer David Pugh.
"And finding two bushes for her to prune on stage will be quite a challenge."
Charlie will make her stage debut on May 3 at the New Theatre in Hull.
