STEPS star Faye Tozer joins new comedy 69 Shades Of Black replacing Gail Porter in the tour that comes to Eden Court next May.
The saucy 69 Shades Of Black is designed to be the perfect feel-good girls' night out with boring William Shight meeting his match in boss Christina Black, played by Faye.
Since landing his dream job at one of the country’s top advertising agencies, William finds things have taken a turn for the shocking.
Company director Christina has taken a shine to him and attempts to seduce him with an indecent proposal. So he has to consult his conscience - cue the hilariously argumentative Gabriel and Gideon.
So will William sign the 69-page contract Christina intends to use to make a man out of him?
Faye - who replaces Gail Porter who pulled out due to date clashes - trained at the Anne Gale School of Dance.
