Ellie Leach is to star in the world premier UK tour production of Cluedo 2 which will be coming to
Darlington Hippodrome in October.

Starring Casualty’s Jason Durr as Colonel Mustard and Ellie Leach – the reigning Strictly Come
Dancing champion – as Miss Scarlett, Cluedo 2 is based on the classic Hasbro board game, which
celebrates its 75th anniversary this year.

Ellie won the hearts of the nation as she waltzed her way to victory (with dance partner Vito) to
win the Strictly Come Dancing Glitterball Trophy in December. She is also known to millions of
viewers as Faye Windass in Coronation Street. During her 13 years on the soap, Ellie was involved
in various memorable storylines and nominated for numerous acting awards.

West End actor and TV favourite Jason Durr was most recently seen as David Hide in BBC One’s
Casualty, (a role he played for seven years from 2016), audiences will also recognise Jason from his
numerous other roles, including the motorbike riding policeman Mike Bradley from ITV’s hugely
popular series, Heartbeat.

Ellie Leach said: “I’ve really enjoyed bringing Miss Scarlett to life on stage. It’s so much fun to
perform this iconic character and to see audiences of all ages having such a good time at every
show, so I’m really thrilled to be extending the tour.”

Jason Durr said: “I’m delighted to be continuing as Colonel Mustard in Cludeo 2. The audience
reaction during our first few weeks of performances has been fantastic and I can’t wait to bring
this hilarious whodunnit to many more audiences around the UK.”

The cast is completed by Jack Bennett (Wadsworth), Hannah Boyce (Mrs Peacock), Dawn Buckland
(Mrs White), Liam Horrigan (Mr Black), Edward Howells (Professor Plum), Tiwai Muza (PC Silver)
and Gabriel Paul (Reverend Green) with Kara Alberts-Turner, Audrey Anderson and Henry Lawes.
