Cynthia Erivo – Strictly’s stand in judge

Grammy, Emmy, and a Tony award winning actress Cynthia Erivo will be taking the seat of Craig this weekend.

She will be replacing the current judge after he caught Covid-19.

The star, largely unknown in the UK, has a musical theatre pedigree with stints in both the West End and New York’s Broadway.

But it hasn’t been an easy ride for the London-born girl, who was abandoned by her father and rejected by casting agents.

The actress, who grew up in council housing in Stockwell, South West London, had to seek success in America after a troubled start in this country.

But she now counts Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg among her pals and she is about to star as soul legend Aretha Franklin in an upcoming TV drama.
