Oduba, whose wife Portia is expecting their second child, will play the role of Brad until September 9.

He said: “Rocky Horror is the kind of show you really have to throw yourself into head first… and after taking these pictures consider me fully submerged and wading in the deep end.

“It’s definitely different to anything I’ve worn on stage before, though I can’t claim it’s my first time in stockings and heels.

“I can’t wait for Rocky to hit the road and we’re finally able to meet the audiences, I know we’ll be in great company.”
