DANI Harmer will be swapping her dance shoes for a microphone when she appears in The Rocky Horror Show at Milton Keynes Theatre.

The Tracy Beaker star, who appeared on the last series of Strictly Come Dancing finishing fourth, is starring in the 40th anniversary tour of the cult musical.

She plays Janet, fiancee to Brad, as a squeaky clean couple of sweethearts who get caught up in an out-of-the- world event full of fun, frolics and frivolity.

Speaking about the show, Dani said: “I’m very excited to be a part of it because I am a huge fan of Rocky Horror and have always wanted to play Janet.

“I love the character because of the journey she goes on as she starts off as someone quite sweet and innocent and is then corrupted by a transvestite.”

“There’s a central philosophy of the show which is don’t dream it, be it, and I think that is a really inspiring message to send out to people.

“Audiences are really loving the show and it’s great fun.”

Readers will probably know of Dani from her role as Tracy and for appearing on Strictly alongside dancer Vincent Simone.

She said: “I haven’t played her in a while but she is a massive part of my life and I am very proud of it.

“I loved doing Strictly. It was the only one of those kind of shows I was interested in doing because it is such a great piece of family entertainment. And in Vincent I have made a friend for life.”

Dani hopes to work more in the film industry following the tour which finishes in November.

She added: “I have a real passion for the British film industry and that is something I’d really like to get involved in, so I hope something will come along.”

The Rocky Horror Show will be performed from July 15 to 20.
