Lucie Jones lands West End role in Les Misérables
Former X Factor contestant Lucie Jones has landed a prestigious role in West End favourite Les Misérables, directed by Cameron Mackintosh.
The star from Pentyrch, Cardiff, who came to prominence on the hit ITV programme, has already started rehearsals for the long-running show.
Lucie will play the part of Cosette, having previously auditioned for the role of Eponine. Her role comes as part of a large cast change after some performers left the show last week.
