Danny can be seen in the production in London, while Jake is on in Oxford and Charlie in Nottingham. And they all play the same part...

EastEnders favourite Danny Dyer and comedian Jo Brand are starring together in Nativity the Musical, which will enjoy a run in London at the Eventim Apollo, from 19th to 31st December.

The musical follows teacher Mr Maddens, his crazy assistant Mr Poppy and a class of hilarious children as they try to put on a musical version of The Nativity.

Danny, who plays Mick Carter in EastEnders, will star in the production as The Hollywood Producer, who Mr Maddens tells the kids will come to see the show, while Jo takes the part of The Critic. Tickets for Nativity The Musical are on sale now.
