Check out brand new pictures from Cabaret, starring Michelle Ryan and Will Young, who has admitted to battling depression and addiction...

Will Young will be starring in Cabaret in London's West End for the next four months alongside former EastEnders star Michelle Ryan as the lederhosen-wearing Emcee. These brand new pictures from the stage show demonstrate the fun-filled, sexy nature of the show which has recently been touring the UK.

Will, who is one of the country's top male artists since winning Pop Idol a decade ago, appears to be enjoying the role very much, leather lederhosen and all!

However, he has admitted in an interview that he's suffered with depression and that he was hooked to pornography.

In the interview with Sunday Times Style, the openly-gay star said: "Addictions can be anything. Last year I moved into my new house, my album went to number one and I was miserable.

He added: "It never moved into sex addiction. For me, it was love addiction and fantasy. I was probably addicted to porn."

Away from his difficult personal life, Will is co-starring in the show alongside Michelle, Sian Phillips and Matt Rawle and they've been touring the country before they move the show to the Savoy hotel in London's West End for four months.

The show is former EastEnders star Michelle's first time on the stage and she's playing the coveted role of Sally Bowles, the role Liza Minelli played back in in the Oscar-winning film in 1972. The show itself debuted on Broadway in 1966, so it's the definition of theatrical history!

Michelle rose to fame playing Zoe Slater in EastEnders, so taking part in an all-singing, all-dancing production set in 1930s Germany is quite the change... however, we have no doubt whatsoever that she's an amazing Sally Bowles! Will looks truly remarkable as the Emcee of the Kit Kat Klub too.

i have had a check back on some of KEITH WHITE'S posts

 

we are all entitled to our opinions but his constant use of the word shirt lifter is rather worrying to say the least

Rating...get it!

 

Although in hindsight we all do suffer some addictions at some stage in our lives; but we're not fortunate enough to use our own addiction revelations to boost ratings and our pockets...so we get on with our addictions or try and beat the habit - quietly.

 

Good luck willy

Who gives a toss what 'celebs' do behind closed doors. Stop wasting our time with this guff. (Oh, and I confess to not having even read whaetver the geezer has to say yet. I just reacted to the headline that suggets somebody who has appeared on TV thinks we might be interested!)

It's kind of sad to still see so many homophobic comments in the 21st century. Gay people exist, stop being little b*tches and get over it. It's not like they have a choice in the matter...
