    by ODN


    Lee Mead and Rachel Tucker are two of the brand new cast members to tread the boards for West End musical Wicked.

    The pair were at the press night for the re-launch of the show and said they were thrilled to join the production.

    Lee said: "I'm very, very proud. I've waited a long time. It has been a year and a half since Joseph, but I was waiting for the right thing to happen. To get the call for this was phenomenal."

    Meanwhile, Rachel paid tribute to the hardcore fans: "There's something special about Wicker fans...They come from all over the world. They just seem to get it."

    New mum Denise Van Outen turned out to support husband Lee and revealed he was learning his lines in hospital as their baby was born.

    Lee Mead plays Fiyero, while Rachel Tucker stars as Elphaba in Wicked at London's Apollo Theatre from May 2010 onwards.
