Cheryl’s West End co-star is forced to pull out of 2:22 A Ghost Story after being struck down with the flu

Cheryl’s West End co-star has been forced to pull out of 2:22 A Ghost Story less than a week after she made her debut.

Hugo Chegwin, who plays Ben in the show, has had to bow out of the play after being struck down with the flu, making him too sick to rehearse.

The actor has been replaced by EastEnders star Jake Wood, who originated the character in the play’s first run.

Hugo said: ‘I’ve had the flu. Due to being poorly during the rehearsal period, I’ve had to pull out of the play. 

‘I’m absolutely gutted about this and I wish everyone involved in the play the best of luck. The cast are truly amazing.’

Jake Wood said: ‘It was an honour to originate the role of Ben at the Noel Coward, winning the WhatsOnStage best supporting performer in a male identifying role in a play Award for 2021, and I am so excited to be rejoining the cast until the end of April. 

‘Danny Robins’ script is funny, touching, and so entertaining and easily the best play I have ever read. If you’ve seen the show before, come back and see it again and I promise that you will enjoy it just as much as I know I will the second time around.’
