Simon gets Les Mis role

X-Factor star takes to stage in June

One Manx reality TV star is following in the footsteps of another after Simon Lynch announced he’ll be joining the cast of Les Miserables.

Simon hit the big time after appearing on last year’s X-Factor, when he lost out during the judge’s houses round.

Today, he took to Twitter to announce he’s got a role in the stage show that proved a big hit for Laxey singer Samantha Barks when she starred in a film adaptation in 2012.

The show, at the Queen’s Theatre in London, has been running for 31 years.
