Remakes of classic films – who either love them or hate them. And when it comes to 1990 box office smash Ghost, it’s hard to imagine that anyone could recreate THAT iconic pottery scene.

After all the chemistry between Demi Moore and her on-screen beau, the late Patrick Swayze was electric.

But times can and do change, and the Ghost we have come to know and love is getting a throughly modern makeover. And you won’t believe who’s picking up where Demi left off.

Got it yet? Well we’ll put you out of your misery, it’s none other than former Girl’s Aloud band member Sarah Harding.

Harding also excited about new role

Harding revealed that she was “absolutely delighted” to make her star turn in the production, saying:

“The film is one of my all-time favourites. So to get the opportunity to play Molly in Bill Kenwright’s new production is a huge honour. And I can’t wait to get started.”

The musical will have a short run at New Wimbledon Theatre from September 1st, before heading off on a tour of the UK, ending in Nottingham in December.
