Willy Russell updates Educating Rita for new stage production

It is arguably best known for the film starring Sir Michael Caine and Julie Walters, but Willy Russell's Educating Rita first enjoyed success in the theatre.

A new stage production, with an updated script from the playwright, will see actors Matthew Kelly and Claire Sweeney step in to the lead roles.

They talked to BBC Breakfast about the production, which opens at The Menier Chocolate Factory in London on 25 April.
