Nicole has previously said she feels "honoured" to be appearing in the revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's hit musical."I am really thrilled to be making my West End debut in such an iconic show," she said as her role was confirmed. "I grew up listening to Andrew's extraordinary music and was lucky enough a couple of years ago to record Cats' beautiful song Memory.
