The Take That star created the musical with childhood friend Tim Firth, who wrote 2003 movie Calendar Girls and its subsequent West End play adaptation.

The production, about a group of Women's Institute members who posed nude for a charity calendar, premiered in Leeds, England in December (15) and was also performed in Salford, England.

The producers have now announced they are bringing the show, directed by Firth, to the West End and it can be seen from 28 January, 2017 at London's Phoenix Theatre.

"After 5 years of hard work our little musical @thegirlsmusical enters a new chapter #westend #exciting," Gary tweeted.

The singer previously wrote the music and lyrics for Broadway musical Finding Neverland, which closed after 17 months in August (16).
