I am excited to meet audiences from all over the UK, and share with them some enthralling, edge-of-your-seat entertainment!’
Meanwhile Clive Mantle added: ‘I’m looking forward to terrifying… I mean entertaining… audiences up and down the length and breadth of Britain with ‘Wish You Were Dead’. Full of suspense and drama, there will be many funny moments too during the course of a captivating evening. There’s a clue there for starters. Roll up, roll up, all you amateur sleuths. Can’t wait to see you all.’
