The Chase's Bradley Walsh in hysterics as fans mistake him for pal Brian Conley at 9 To 5 Musical premiere

Comedy veteran Brian, 57, is starring as chauvinistic boss Frank Hart Jr in the new West End production.

But his opening night on Sunday was ruined slightly – when fans confused his mate Bradley, 58, for him.

Sharing a video to Twitter, Brian said: "This is my mate Brad.

"Now it's my opening night tonight ladies and gentlemen, and I haven't received that many compliments because…"

Then Bradley laughed as he interrupted: "Because everyone's been coming up to me and going 'Congratulations Brian, what a show.''"

"They're having photos with me, saying 'Loved you in the bondage kit.'"


The Chase host then sweetly added: "You've got come and see the main man tonight, absolutely brilliant.

"He's one of my best, best pals I've known Brian so for many years, he's an absolute ledge."

The show, based on the 1980 film of the same name and co-written by Dolly Parton, follows three women as they try and overthrow their boss played by Conley.

And Louise Redknapp, 44, who was meant to be playing one of the leads before injuring her wrist last month, looked worse for wear after partying at the premiere. 

The Sun gave the show, which also stars Love Island's Amber Davies and Bonnie Langford a five out of five. 

Dolly, 73, has hailed Amber as “precious and beautiful”.

Directed by Jeff Calhoun, 9 to 5: The Musical is on now until August 31, 2019 at the Savoy Theatre in London.
