The producers of Monty Python musical SPAMALOT have launched a televised talent search in Sweden to cast a new leading lady in their stage show on London's West End. Just ten of the 1,000 women who auditioned in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmo will compete in West End Star, a nine-part series which seeks to find a replacement for current star Hannah Waddingham in her role as the Lady of the Lake. The show's winner will begin rehearsals with the rest of the London cast after she is chosen at the series finale on 2 February (08).
