NEWS: CLAIRE FROM STEPS, MARTINE MCCUTCHEON, GRAHAM NORTON, DAWN STEELE & MICHELLE MCMANUS GUEST STAR IN ‘GARY LAMONT: DROPPING THE SOAP!’ TOUR 2018
Join Gary Lamont in Dropping the Soap! opening at Falkirk Town Hall 16 February. It’s the starriest show in town with guest appearances from 3 chart-topping pop stars and the king of chat himself.
Gary Lamont recently left the popular BBC Scotland soap opera ‘River City’ last year, his character Robbie Fraser leaving Shieldinch in a limousine with pop star Claire Richards.
But while Robbie’s been hired as the hairdresser for the latest Steps tour, what’s next for Gary himself? That’s the focus of his new comedy cabaret which sees Gary ponder his next move with the help of his pals.
Says Gary, “I’m loving doing my new show and especially working with all my amazing guest stars. Claire from Steps is my childhood idol, Graham Norton is my favourite TV host, Dawn Steele is my favourite actress, Martine McCutcheon is my spirit animal and Michelle McManus is normally so expensive I can’t afford her. So to have them all agree to take part and send themselves up has been incredible”.
Claire Richards “Gary managed to rope me in to film his exit from River City and now he’s made me take part in his show. I have rather a lot on at the minute with the Steps tour so hopefully this will be the end of it all. If not I will consider a restraining order! Seriously though, I loved having the chance to take part in Gary’s new show”.
Graham Norton “I absolutely loved Gary’s last show so I was happy to help out with his latest. Who needs soap when you’ve got buckets of charm, hilarity and song like Gary? His show is a joyous revelation”.
