Rylan, who is known from coming fifth on ITV’s “X Factor” in 2012 and most recently in Channel 4’s “Celebrity Bake Off” for Stand Up to Cancer (if you didn’t see his ‘poo cake’ then you didn’t miss much!) said:

‘I’m so excited to be joining the company of “Nativity! The Musical”. The Eventim Apollo is such an iconic London venue and I am thrilled that I will be performing to thousands of people as ‘The Critic’ which is such a terrific role. Alan Carr played it in the film and Jo Brand on stage last year, I have big shoes to fill but I can’t wait to get started”.
