Weeks before his six-month stint on the West End is complete, singer Duncan James has announced he is quitting his role in Legally Blonde.
The former Blue hunk has been starring in the theatre adaption of Reese Witherspoon's film alongside Gavin & Stacey star Sheridan Smith.
"I've been asked to extend until October but I declined it because I want to do other things, it takes up so much time," says Duncan, who wants to see more of his daughter.
"You do eight shows a week and you have no time for anything. My day off is Tuesday and my daughter's at school on Tuesdays so it's quite hard to see my girl and have a normal life. I want some life back after June."
